The MultiFormat system transports preformed containers up to 140mm in height and up to 2,500 grams in volume at speeds up to 57,600 units per hour. The MultiFormat is lubrication-free, making it ideal for use in hygienic conditions including the production of dairy products.
The OYSTAR Hamba line features a range of high-performance cup, tub and bottle filling and sealing machines for pasty and liquid products in pre-formed containers made of plastic, carton-plastic compounds, carton, aluminium, and bottle filling and sealing machines in pre-formed PET or HDPE-bottles. The MultiFormat system can be incorporated into new machines as well as retrofitted into earlier models.
By minimizing the maintenance of the transport system via the elimination of transport chain stretching and service, the MultiFormat system reduces the overall maintenance costs of OYSTAR Hamba machines. The reduction in parts subject to wear and tear also ensures that maintenance needs are kept to a minimum.
“With the MultiFormat system, a single person operating an OYSTAR Hamba line can handle a cell plate change – completely without tools – in less than 15 minutes,” said John W. Panaseny, President of OYSTAR USA. “The resulting efficiencies open the door to options that, without MultiFormat, simply wouldn’t be economically viable, such as producing variable seasonal and country-specific packaging formats.”
