PPMA 2023: Ima Ilapak Vegatronic 2000 ML to take centre-stage in UK debut
IMA FLX, a group of companies offering machines across the flexible packaging chain, has announced it will be represented at PPMA by Ilapak.
Ilapak represents IMA Ilapak, IMA Record and IMA Eurosicma in the UK.
The IMA ILAPAK Vegatronic 2000 ML will take centre-stage on IMA FLX’s stand (D10) when it makes its UK debut at PPMA 2023.
With its sanitary design, accessibility and a variety of pack styles, including Doy-style pouches, the machine is squarely aimed at the IQF food, produce and dairy markets.
The Vegatronic 2000 ML has been specifically designed with fewer added-value features than other machines in the Vegatronic range. This move is designed to ensure the machine is affordable for the UK’s food manufacturers who are under pressure from retailers to minimise costs during a period of high food price inflation.
Tony McDonald, Ilapak’s sales and marketing director said the move to exhibit came from UK market demand for machines that help customers reduce their operating costs and provide the lowest cost of ownership and the lowest cost per pack.
“We are also helping ensure they are well placed to meet growing hygiene pressures with easy access to all machine components, which facilitate, easier monitoring and cleaning,” Mc Donald said.
The Vegatronic 2000 ML will be joined on stand D10 by the Delta Flobag, while IMA Ilapak’s Carrera I-500 flow wrapper will be on display in the PPMA foyer.
The Delta Flobag is an efficient solution for shrink and vacuum processed meat and cheese. The stainless steel and hygienic design allow the machine to work in harsh production and wash-down environments both as stand-alone long-dwell flow wrapping machine and also integrated in a full production line depending on a customer’s needs.
The Carrera I-500 is an entry level flow wrapper offering robust and ergonomic architecture, balcony style design and extended film and product size range capacity. It is a top tier entry level flow wrapper that can run at linear speeds of 40+m/min. ideal for fresh and frozen applications such as baked goods, snacks, ready meals, cheese, meat, proteins and non-food products.
