Penta 2200 vertical form, fill and seal machine
Accolade Packaging is showing the Penta 2200 vertical form, fill and seal machine for the first time in New Zealand at Foodtech Packtech 2012.
The Penta 2200 has a small footprint and its 1.3 m height makes adding a multihead weigher or linear weighers possible without having to create a special-height room.
It can form bag lengths of 60 to 500 mm through a simple PLC touch-screen interface, making it a suitable option for liquids, powders or granular foodstuffs. Manufactured in stainless steel with an IP68 rating, this unit can run simplex films or laminated structures with or without euroslot, bag gusseting or block bottom 4-sided-seal stand-up stabilo packs.
The predecessor to this machine, the Penta 2100, has been widely in use in New Zealand since 1995. Where the Penta 2200 improves on the past is through the use of brushless servo drive motors to increase speed and bag length accuracy, which provides laminated bag speeds of up to 90/min with or without print registration.
The machine offers quick changeover of forming tubes and is capable of bag widths 60 to 290 mm wide. With a simple change of the forming tube collar apex, the Penta 2200 can run an overlap seal or fin seal depending on the presentation required.
Also available are the larger Penta 3100 and Penta 4200 models, which can run greater bag widths and lengths. Built to the highest Italian standards, Accolade can add inline coders, labellers and gas flush units to suit production requirements. The company maintains the complete array of spare parts on the shelf in New Zealand.
