MULTIVAC will exhibit its packaging solutions at Fruit Logistica 2019 from 6 to 8 February 2019.
Taking center stage is the company’s G 700 traysealer which can produce tray packs with or without modified atmosphere, depending on the product to be packed.
The traysealer will be demonstrated with a perforator for producing FreshSAFE packs for blueberries. This enables standard upper web to be perforated during the packaging procedure, so that an equilibrium modified atmosphere (EMAP) is produced within the pack. This means that the packaged fruit remains fresh for longer without the addition of preservatives. The traysealer will run PLA trays, which are produced from renewable raw materials. These will be sealed with an upper web (also PLA) and then labelled.
The packs will be labelled on a L 310 conveyor belt labeller, which applies a D label to the packs. This type of labelling offers many possibilities in the design of the pack, and this in turn contributes significantly to increasing the attractiveness of these packs at the point of sale.
The company will also show visitors how its thermoforming packaging machine, the R 085 e-concept for packing treated vegetables (in this case beetroot) in flexible film packs work. This compact machine is a cost-effective, entry-level solution for hand producers and smaller processors, as well as for companies, which produce a wide range of dedicated packs in small batches for many different food products. The R 085 can be used very flexibly in the production room, since it is operated without water and compressed air, and the position of the machine is therefore not tied to any service connections.
In addition to this, MULTIVAC will present its sustainable packaging solutions that contribute to reducing the consumption of packaging materials and increasing the level of recyclability. One example is MULTIVAC PaperBoard – a packaging concept, which enables MAP and skin packs made of paper fibre-based materials to be produced on thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers. The carrier material can be run in the form of either rolls or pre-cut sheets. Pre-made trays can also be used. All the materials can be separated into their respective parts by the end user and the paper backing sent for recycling.
