Packaging machinery and automated line supplier ULMA Packaging is set to showcase its latest high-speed technology during the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA) event at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, England.
ULMA will display a variety of packaging solutions for almost every sector, including the latest developments in Vertical Form Fill and Seal technology, which combines the new, patented Air Extraction System.
Also on display will be the TSA 680, an automatic tray sealer ideal for all kinds of preformed trays.
The tray sealer, which can be integrated into process automation, combines high production speeds with accuracy, claims the company.
Powered by Continuous Motion Control software, TSA 680 can deliver throughput of up to six trays per cycle at speeds up to 25 cycles/pm.
ULMA’s UK managing director Chris Pickles said: “PPMA is always a big deal for us and has been very successful in the past in terms of business generated from the show. Each year more companies are seeking out ULMA for the latest developments in cutting-edge packaging technology and this year will be no different.”
ULMA will also demonstrate fully automated lines, including horizontal flowrappers (horizontal FV 35 and Florida), vertical baggers (VTI 640), thermoforming (TFS) and skin packaging.
The versatile FV 35 creates a vacuum pouch from a single shrink barrier film, suitable for processed meat and cheese, as well as pork and lamb.
The Florida machine offers a three-sealing pillow pack with high performance levels.
VTI 640 vertical bagger is a high-speed bagging equipment designed for packing a wide variety of food products.
TFS Thermoformers use specially designed top films to enhance the product’s appearance and extend shelf life.
The PPMA event will be held from 26-28 September 2017. The PPMA Show is organized by the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA), which comprises the PPMA, British Automation & Robot Association and the UK Industrial Vision Association.
