Multivac to showcase new concepts
Packaging solutions provider, Multivac, will be presenting its new concepts for producing recyclable food packaging which provide maximum protection with minimum resources at this year’s IFFA.
Together with other packaging manufacturers, Multivac has developed suitable packaging materials, which can be run on standard machines, that meet demands for recyclability. By using different functional layers, it is possible to produce packs from paper fibre-based materials, which also meet the barrier requirements of the most sensitive products.
The packs can be designed in such a way, that the end user is able to separate the cardboard backing from the plastic barrier layer and then put it into the paper recycling.
At IFFA, Multivac will present two different concepts for producing MultiFresh vacuum skin packs using paper fibre-based materials.
Flat vacuum skin packs will be produced on the R 105 MF thermoforming packaging machine from reel-fed cardboard composites. With a fully automatic process and the material being supplied on the roll, this solution offers an attractive pack cost and a high level of efficiency.
The automatic T 800 traysealer line will feature vacuum skin packs being produced from pre-cut card sheets. The line is equipped with a L 310 conveyor belt labeller, which applies a full-wrap label to the packs.
Three packaging lines are also exhibited in Frankfurt, and a slicer or portioner is integrated in each of them. Multivac offers various solutions, such as the Horizontal Loader which ensures that the sliced or portioned products are loaded gently and hygienically into the pack cavities.
