MULTIVAC at Anuga Foodtec

12 January 2012

GERMANY - MULTIVAC will be demonstrating its expertise in automation at Anuga FoodTec from 27-30 March in Cologne.

On show will be an integrated traysealer line with a twin track T 700 high-end traysealer. In addition MULTIVAC will also be presenting a R 535 thermoforming packaging machine for the production of 'PrePack' packages. Another highlight of its exhibition presence will be its High Pressure Processing of food (HPP).

At the Anuga FoodTec in Cologne MULTIVAC will be presenting its R 535 high performance thermoforming packaging machine for the production of 'PrePack' packages. The R 535 is equipped with a folding station and a MR 635 cross web labeller. Downstream from the R 535 will be a MBS 110 converging system with integrated metal detector for converging the packs. The R 535 offers a simple die change and easy access to the dies thanks to its innovative drawer system and electrically hinged dies.

With the 'PrePack' concept MULTIVAC will be showing an innovative pack, which is gaining ever greater circulation in the chill cabinets.

The packs look as if the contents have been 'freshly packed' on the sales counter. "Food producers and packers would like to automate but also however to present authentic products which look hand made. The 'PrePack' concept is the method of choice", explains Valeska Haux, Marketing Manager at MULTIVAC. At the same time users benefit from the logistical and hygienic advantages of industrial-scale packaging, as well as from the many different convenience aspects which the 'PrePack' concept offers.

With a second line MULTIVAC will be showing the twin track T 700 high-end traysealer. The T 700 has been designed for the fully automatic packing of large and medium-sized volumes in trays. The machine automatically optimises speed and travel movements for the required output and sets new standards in process reliability, efficiency and Hygiene-Design. The destacking of the trays is carried out by a tray destacker from Carsoe. The packaging line is equipped with a H 130 handling module with a 4-axis robot for placing the finished tray packs into outer cartons.

The handling module has three degrees of movement freedom as well as an optional rotating axis - and therefore offers customers the widest range of applications.
