MULTIVAC at Seafood in Brussels from 24 to 26 April 2018 (Hall 4, Stand 6051)

Fish and seafood attractively packaged

Wolfertschwenden, 27 February 2018 – At Seafood Processing Global, which takes place from 24 to 26 April in Brussels, everything on the MULTIVAC stand will revolve around packaging solutions, which not only contribute to extending the shelf life of fish and seafood, but also enable the product to be presented attractively at the point of sale. Prominence will be given in particular to the benefits of vacuum skin packs.

With its MultiFreshâ„¢ system, MULTIVAC offers a process for packing food in high-quality vacuum skin packs. It can be produced on thermoforming packaging machines or traysealers. The upper web is tightly draped around the product and is sealed to the entire surface of the lower web. Even food products with sharp or hard parts, such as bones or shells, are enclosed securely and fixed in place in the pack cavity. The vacuum in the pack contributes to an extended shelf life for the food.

MULTIVAC has many years of experience in vacuum skin technology and offers a broad spectrum of special packaging machines, which meet the widest range of requirements with regard to pack size, output and level of automation. 

The compact R 105 MF thermoforming packaging machine, which MULTIVAC will be showing at Seafood, is an economical entry-level model for producing high-quality vacuum skin packs in small and medium-sized batches. The R 105 MF has the same technical equipment as the large machine models, and it therefore makes it possible even for small-scale manufacturers to launch into vacuum skin packs. It is equipped with integrated upper web chain guidance, which ensures that the film is firmly guided right into the sealing station.

From its wide range of traysealers, MULTIVAC will be showing its fully automatic T 300 H machine. The space-saving entry-level model is suitable for packing a wide range of products, and it was primarily designed for tray packing in small to medium-sized batches. The T 300 H can be designed as multi-track and combined with various discharge systems. Thanks to the simple die change, the machine can quickly be converted for different pack sizes and shapes. Electric drive systems for the tray transport, lifting unit and film trim winder ensure that it has an energy-efficient method of operation.
