At FoodTech Qld last week, PKN caught up with John Pickering, technical sales manager at Proseal, and was treated to a quick demonstration of the company's new GTR semi-automatic two-station rotary-table tray sealing machine.

Capable of up 30 atmospheric packs per minute with a two-impression tool, the GTR machine is the workhorse of the ready meal industry. It is fully portable with automatic film-feed.

Reliable and easy to operate, the GTR is used around the world and has become a benchmark for portable sealing equipment.

Optional free-flow gas flush Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is also available for extended shelf life, and the quick-release tooling allows the user to change from one tray size to another in less than two minutes.
