MULTIVAC at interpack


2017-05-02

MULTIVAC will present itself at interpack as an experienced manufacturer of automation solutions. The solution portfolio covers all types of automation tasks and levels of integration. With a holistic understanding of customers' products and requirements, the processes for infeed, marking, quality inspection as well as cartoning and palletisation are also integrated in fully-automated solutions, in addition to packaging.

The R 235 thermoforming packaging machine is specially designed for producing flat packs of sliced products. A quick-change system for the forming and sealing dies makes it easy to convert the machine to other pack formats. Various labelling and marking systems can also be integrated easily. The R 235 can also be equipped with a jumbo film unwind for lower webs to reduce machine downtime.

Furthermore, the R 235 has an interface for linking a slicer. Thanks to a space-saving infeed construction, the loading conveyor of the slicer can be placed horizontally at the height of the film level. Thus no additional transport conveyors are necessary – this saves valuable space and reduces the investment expense.

For the loading of packs with sliced goods, two different loading systems are showcased on the line, the MULTIVAC Horizontal Loader as well as a MULTIVAC Pick-and-Place system. Both systems are designed to insert sliced products into packs safely and hygienically with a high cycle output.

Packs of sliced products are labelled by the L 330 conveyor belt labeller; the line is equipped with the H 130 handling module for cartoning, the company said.
