The semi-automatic M-Flex tray sealer is now available for smaller production processes. Craft workshops, small business startups, laboratories, test kitchens, and catering suppliers can use it to produce the entire spectrum of packaging solutions in a small space and with only short set-up times. Sealpac’s M-Flex tray sealer can processes all prefabricated packaging materials, such as plastic, foil, and cardboard.

Depending on the application, the Amax-series tray sealers intuitively operated machines are up to 50% faster than previous generations. They are characterized by their particularly low-wear, low-maintenance design and are driven by high-quality servomotors that allow for extremely smooth production runs. The integrated EnergyManager ensures optimal use of energy. Furthermore, the air consumption of the Amax traysealer has been reduced by up to 90%.

In addition to conventional modified atmosphere or TraySkin® packaging, these flexible tray sealers produce particularly resource-saving solutions. For example, they process ultra-light trays, the weight of which has been reduced by 20% compared to conventional MAP trays. Hybrid packaging concepts with a reduced plastic and high cardboard content, such as eTray®, FlatSkin® or FlatMap®, can also be handled by the Amax tray sealers. Upon request, Sealpac will offer an all-in-one solution that allows the customer to run all these concepts on the same base machine.

The intelligent drive management of the Amax tray sealer reduces the maintenance effort and thus ensures optimal availability at all times. All in all, the new series succeeds in optimally combining product safety, performance and efficient operation with more resource conservation.

Sealpac also demonstrated its compact PRO thermoformer, as well as the high-output RE thermoformer that produces packs made from demanding mono-PP film. This machine supports Sealpac’s customers in meeting the latest sustainability requirements in the packaging industry. The pack is equipped with the company’s EasyPeelPoint opening system, which is less subjective to cold sealing, common in existing thermoformer applications.

Other highlights at the Sealpac stand was demonstrations of machine monitoring. Sealpac showed visitors that, for example by using OPC/UA, its equipment is easily integrated into line control software. This allows its customers to see in real time if the machine is running, in stop, in error, or waiting for up- or downstream equipment. As such, it simplifies operational planning and increases efficiency in every detail. In addition, it supports maintenance, service and error diagnosis, therefore optimally meeting the needs of Industry 4.0.
