Multivac to exhibit at Fachpack in Germany

Multivac’s R535 thermoforming packaging machineMultivac will be presenting a wide spectrum of packaging technologies for all output ranges, as well as the latest marking and inspection systems at Fachpack, to be held in Nuremberg, Germany, from 25-27 September. The demand for solutions for automated packing is growing continually, while the spectrum of Multivac’s customers has widened significantly.

‘These days we are talking to both the local retailer, who wants to get into the technology of automated packing, and to the representatives of global manufacturers of food and consumer products, who set ever higher requirements for the efficiency of their packaging solutions,’ reports marketing manager Valeska Haux.

Multivac has reacted to the changes in its markets with an enhanced product and packaging solution offering. In the upper output range, it has a complete packaging line for industrial products, on which memory cards will be packed in thermoformed blister packs. In addition to the R535 thermoforming packaging machine, the line includes several handling system solutions, a cross web labeller with serialisation function, the Multivac Vision System for seal seam inspection and a card loader from Buhmann Systems.

It will also be presenting the twin track T700 traysealer in an end-to-end packaging line with a tray destacker (Carsoe), a checkweigher with metal detector, a H 130 handling module with 4-axis robot and a Trimaster palletising system.

In the lower and medium output range, Multivac will show the T100 semi-automatic traysealer, which can be placed on a table, as well as the T300 fully automatic traysealer. On show will also be the R145 thermoforming packaging machine (an entry-level model for the packaging of sterile medical products in small and medium batch sizes) installed with the MR296 TI direct web printer with the Wolke m600 printing system. The C400 TC, a special chamber machine with temperature controlled sealing bar, is also ideally designed for sterile medical products.

Further product showings will include the new marking and inspection system: a thermal transfer printer (TTO), in which the operation is completely integrated in the HMI 2.0 user interface; and the MR821, a new inspection system that checks the seal seams for consistency and possible contamination while the packs are in the packaging machine.
