At the booth, resealable modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) was produced on Weber’s wePACK 7000 thermoforming packaging machine.
The machine safely and sustainably packages sliced products, piece goods, or other fresh products in top output ranges. The packaging machine offers high output and quality, as well as ease of maintenance and service. The hygienic design and high degree of automation ensure the highest standards of food safety.
Optimal packaging results and excellent performance and flexibility in the packaging process are provided by elements that were specifically developed to meet the needs of the food industry, such as the servo-driven tool stroke and the new roller shear cut with a quick-change system. Both features enable quick product change with maximum output and minimal process-related waiting times. Moreover, features that monitor and regulate the top and bottom webs ensure process reliability and avoid film and product losses.
The packaging concept itself is a strong and, most importantly, recyclable duo that includes SÜDPACK’s PP-based rigid film Ecoterm and the PP-based Multipeel PurePP as the top web. Due to their thermoforming capability and machinability, they can be processed on existing packaging machines without any major modifications – and even high cycle rates in continuous operation are possible.
In addition, the material structures offer optimal mechanical and functional properties, such as good puncture resistance even with contaminated sealing seams, which just like their exceptional sealing performance, ensure high packaging reliability along the entire process chain.
A package can be easily opened and resealed due to the Multipeel film, which provides all of these features with a thickness of just 60 µm. For optimal product protection and an extended product shelf life, a high oxygen barrier is integrated into the film. The reliable reseal system also prevents premature spoilage.
