G.Mondini and Digi Europe have collaborated to launch an integrated weigh station with a coding system that allows printing directly onto film on the top of the tray, eliminating the need for labels and the cost of dispersing unwanted backing paper.

The HI-700TTC tray sealer offers real-time printing of information on pre-printed film, a secure tamper proof labelling system and a wider print head as standard, said the companies behind the machine at the IFFA Trade Show in Frankfurt.

It offers a single panel for recipe selection, sealing station, printing system, weighing device, weigh-printing console and production line input.

Glenn Fruish, export sales manager, at Digi Europe told FoodProductionDaily.com that the throughput speeds are around 72 packs per minute.

“We basically looked at what the industry was requiring and a lot of supermarkets are driving for dispersing of wasted packaging so this is one of the concepts behind this, that dispersing all the labels.

“The machine can be applied in any industry that is top tray sealing their product, so not only is it meat but it can be used for poultry and in the fruit and vegetable industry.”
