ACMA, part of the Coesia Group, will display a mid-speed multi-style machine for packaging chocolates and candies, which has a high wrapping quality with double product centering.
The Italian company will debut an automatic alternating movement machine at ProSweets 2016, designed for the packaging of chocolates, candies and toffees with flat base.
The technology combines a compact layout that permits integration in various production environments in various styles such as bunch, double twist, boero, portafoglio and "fancy" ones, while at the same time with gentle product handling.
It has the possibility of independent reel unwinding, in the case of products with inner and outer wraps having different dimensions. It can handle all types of wrapping material, from alufoil to plastic compounds.
ACMA also has three different types of packers: SP0, SP1 and SP2, for the confectionery and bakery sectors. The SP series flowpacker permit mid and high speed packaging of individual or multipack products, with cold or hot sealing.
For the top-range version (SP2, capable of reaching a speed of 120 meters of film per minute) an ACMA patented device for pneumatic film stretching guarantees maximum performance levels and at the same time interrupts unwinding in case of product absence.
