At Fruit Logistica 2017 in Berlin, Multivac will provide efficient and safe packaging solutions to extend the shelf life of fresh fruits, vegetables and salads, as well as that of popular convenience foods and fresh cut products.
The focus is on suitable packing technologies as well as on-demand packaging machines for producers, packers, wholesalers and retailers. With the thermoform packing machine R 105, MULTIVAC offers an entry-level model for the production of MAP and vacuum packaging, which is shown at the trade fair with a perforating device for the production of FreshSAFE packs. This packaging design keeps fruit, vegetables and salads fresh for a long time without the use of preservatives, because during the packaging process, the standard overlay is perforated according to the requirements of the product and an equilibrium atmosphere (EMAP) is produce inside the pack.
For the flexible packaging of fruits and raw or processed vegetable varieties with a high product overflow, MULTIVAC presents the fully automatic tray sealer T 300 H. The compact model is designed for small and medium batches and can be presented in several lanes. Electric drive systems for the transport of trays, the hoisting gear and a film-winder ensure an energy-efficient operation. The semi-automatic Traysealer T 250 can also be seen in Berlin. The space-saving model can be used flexibly thanks to mobile rollers and offers a multitude of individual equipment options with an adjustable tool layout, automatic tray drawer, precise cutting systems for inside and outside cut as well as an integrated vacuum pump.
In the field of chamber machines, the Allgäu manufacturer, with the C 200 chamber machine, will be displaying a space-saving table device for the fast and efficient packing of salads, nuts or dried fruits in bags of small to medium size. The C 200 is robust, accurate, extremely efficient and flexible to use. An optional lid-lock allows the packaging of sensitive products such as lettuce to be stored at atmospheric pressure. All machine models shown are characterized by their ease of use, excellent packaging quality and the groundbreaking MULTIVAC Hygenic Design™.
