The VTC 800-R continuous vertical wrapper from Ulma Packaging UK is markedly faster than previous models as it can produce zipper packs at up to 60 packs a minute. It has been developed to meet demand from dairy producers for resealable grated cheese packaging.
With supermarket trends showing an increase in resealable packaging, many dairy industry companies are looking to integrate machinery that can efficiently produce this pack design into their production lines. In response, Ulma has developed the VTC 800-R solution, which can produce these zipper packs.
The VTC 800-R’s packaging speed is faster than previous models, for which the production rate was limited to about 35 packs per minute with the resealable zipper application. The new model also ensures the highest hygiene levels in all processes, with a special washdown design that offers protection level IP66 to facilitate water evacuation.
“This new machine’s innovative design means its rotated jaw can be applied lengthways, facilitating operation with the zipper,” explains Dave Berriman, technical sales support manager at Ulma Packaging UK. “As a result, it is possible to further improve efficiency and production levels beyond that of previous models.”
