With its F 286 thermoforming packaging machine, US-based supplier MULTIVAC is launching a new model, which is particularly suitable for producing vacuum and MAP packs for snack products.
The main features of the new machine are its high level of flexibility, efficiency and pack quality, as well as its excellent price-performance ratio, and the machine is available for ordering with immediate effect.
The new F 286 thermoforming packaging machine has been developed by MULTIVAC in response to the current demand in the market for snack packs, such as those for dried or roasted duck portions, beef jerky, small sausages or tofu, and these packs enjoy great popularity particularly in Asia. Packs made from plastic films or aluminium can be produced.
The F 286 was designed to produce thermoformed packs with a forming depth of up to 20 mm. With the optional upper web forming of 10 mm, it is possible to replace existing, symmetrically produced pouch packs. Thanks to its loading area of up to 3,000 mm, which can be extended flexibly, it is possible to achieve high pack outputs, even though the machine can also be accommodated in confined working environments. The unloading area can be extended to fit printing solutions or other equipment components, so that even an inkjet printer or additional cutting unit can be integrated into the machine.
The F 286 achieves a high output with up to 240 packs per minute. Very high and uniform sealing forces, combined with a high-performance forming station, ensure that excellent pack results are achieved even with aluminium packs.
