At Interpack last week, specialist for customised end-of-line packaging machines, Meypack showed how thinking 'small' can deliver big results when it comes to case packing.
To find out more, PKN spoke to Chris Baudinette (pictured below), director of PerForm Packaging Solutions, which represents Meypack in Australia.
"The new VP 600 case packer has been developed specially for the current market requirements across the food industry for packing low volumes of small food products within a small space," Baudinette said.
"With its hygienic design in stainless steel and occupying a very small footprint on the factory floor, this highly efficient case packer meets the stringent and high requirements set for food processing.
"The system is ideal for sensitive products that require gentle processing," he added.
Features include a compact switch cabinet (the servo drives are decentralised); tool-free reproducible format changeovers; and maximum safety thanks to transparent, format-dependent safety guards and certified SICK sensors; and low maintenance design without central lubrication or chains and with self-cleaning vacuum valves.
