Siat/Mallis equipment is designed for end-of-line packaging machines consisting of carton sealers (tape and hot melt), pallet wrappers, carton erectors — both in semi and fully automatic models and other associated machinery.
Propac Industrial has helped Ampac Flexibles to develop an integrated, liquid hot-fill packaging system for the North American market.
Bosch Packaging Technology has introduced ultrasonic sealing technology for vertical form, fill and seal machinery for use in food and confectionery packaging applications. Ultrasonic sealing is a method for joining thermoplastic materials together by emitting acoustic vibrations, creating a tight, strong seam for closures in doy-style stand-up pouches, gusseted and pillowbag packaging formats.
The robag 3 ttx 320 vertical form fill and seal packaging system is a rotary double jaw (RDJ) that is claimed will double production rates.
The fully automatic HMPS5000 wraparound case packer can be used to eliminate end-of-line labour constraints.
The Semi-Automatic Cap Tightening (AC-1) machine is air operated, fully torque adjustable and has a variety of chucks and attachments to suit just about every screw-top closure.
For fast, reliable grouping of integral returnable packs, the Robobox pack grouping system provides a compactly dimensioned, flexible functional unit for pack distribution and turning, offering maximised scope for any variant of pack grouping. Since the grouping system has been designed to feature series-connected modules for three different output gradations, the concept can be optimally customised for any desired line speed, thus ensuring a high degree of flexibility in conjunction with the downstream, palletising system.
The FS series is a range of thermoformers characterised by the ability to adapt to all types of applications in the food-processing, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors. The versatile lines can process flexible as well as rigid films, with or without protective atmosphere (MAP). The FS range, which comprises three models (FS 910, FS930 and FS 950), features a distinctive design that meets users’ needs for robustness, ergonomics, easy cleaning, hygiene and safety. Moreover, this range of thermoformers benefits from a quick-change tool system that enhances productivity.
In addition to the existing Veloce filler based on mechanical filling valve technology, Sidel is rounding out its offering with Veloce FM, a filler with an electronic flowmeter filling valve.
The Doboy TSC-090-tri-seal carton closer seals and closes top-loaded tri-seal paperboard cartons and is suitable for applications in the food, bakery, pharmaceutical and frozen item markets.
The RT-8BT-8VF from Leepack is a rotary vacuum fill-seal machine that is designed for handling pre-made pouches.
Australian Filling & Packaging Machines (AFPM) has introduced an auger filler upgrade program to minimise costs and maximise benefits.
Ishida has launched the Atlas-122C and 112C, compact models of the existing Atlas high-speed snack foods bagmaker. These models have the capacity of the existing Atlas models in downsized compact flame, providing high-speed packaging with high seal integrity.
The Propac Lite vertical form fill seal includes many features of Propac’s proven AV-xx series of machines, but in a simplified version built into a small footprint.
Multi-Fill has recently sold a MPFSC-120-01 filling machine to a customer in the US who had a very delicate product to fill — jelly cubes. The requirement was for a filling machine that would retain the shape and size of their delicate product after it passed through the system. The jelly cubes are loaded into the low-level infeed hopper and a conveyor belt (with a special finger design) passes the product to the filling head. The food is then measured volumetrically and discharged into trays.
