ULMA Packaging says it wants to break into new markets with its thermoforming and flowrapping technology as its TSA 680 automatic tray sealer takes centre stage at Interpack.

The company is promoting its traysealers, flow wrappers, thermoformers, vertical (VFFS) bagmakers and Galaxy stretch film wrapper at the show in Düsseldorf, Germany, (May 4-10).

Bakery, dairy, confectionery

The TSA 680 can seal MAP, Vacuum and Skin depending on the requirements of the product to be packaged.

Chris Pickles, managing director, ULMA, said its thermoforming and flowrapping technology can be tailor-made to suit a customer’s requirements, as the company looks to consolidate its presence in established markets and break into new ones.

Our expanding product portfolio will continue the growth the company has enjoyed over the past years. Exhibiting in front of a global audience at Interpack puts us in an excellent position to showcase the expertise we have in automation and our high-quality packaging machinery,” he added.

ULMA Packaging introduced a high tech version of its popular Atlanta range of horizontal flow wrapping machines to the UK market last year.

Atlanta Hi-tech

The Atlanta Hi-tech is designed to produce a three seal pillow pack for sectors including bakery, dairy, fresh produce, confectionery, biscuits and pies.

The technology has a ‘no product, no bag’ feature for misplaced product detection and access to UDAQ software for integration with remote line monitoring and data capture.

Other features include: rotary crimp jaws with an electronic clutch, three pairs of pneumatically opening and closing fin seal rollers, a 700 mm wide motorised reel holder with pneumatic core clamp and an infeed conveyor with 2 meters of feeding space.

It is suitable for a cross-section of heat sealing films including BOPP, PVC, polyester, cellulose, cold sealing films, shrinkable, HDPE and laminate up to 300mm in roll diameter.
