This is the way MULTIVAC displays a complete line for packaging sliced goods at interpack.
The R 235 thermoforming packaging machine is specially designed for producing flat packs of sliced products. A quick-change system for the forming and sealing dies makes it easy to convert the machine to other pack formats. Various labelling and marking systems can also be inte- grated easily. The R 235 can also be equipped with a jumbo film unwind for lower webs to reduce machine downtime.
Furthermore, the R 235 has an interface for linking a slicer. Thanks to a space-saving infeed construction, the loading conveyor of the slicer can be placed horizontally at the height of the film level. Thus no additional transport conveyors are necessary - this saves valuable space and re- duces the investment expense.
For the loading of packs with sliced goods, two different loading systems are showcased on the line, the MULTIVAC Horizontal Loader as well as a MULTIVAC Pick-and-Place system. Both systems are designed to insert sliced products into packs safely and hygienically with a high cycle output.
Packs of sliced products are labelled by the L 330 con- veyor belt labeller; the line is equipped with the H 130 handling module for cartoning.
