Multivac will launch its new G 700 traysealer at Interpack next week, and then bring it to Foodpro 2017 in Sydney in July.

The convenience trend continues to drive demand for ready meals, antipasti, ready-to-eat salad and fruit varieties, as well as small and healthy snacks in all price sectors, and linked to this is the growing demand for suitable packaging.

Multivac's response comes in the form of the G700 high-output traysealer for packing ready meals, snacks, vegetables and fresh-cut products of all types The convenience trend continues to drive demand for ready meals, antipasti, ready-to-eat salad and fruit varieties, as well as small and healthy snacks in all price sectors, and along with this is the growing demand for suitable packaging.

The G700 will be seen for the first time at Interpack (Hall 5, stand E23), taking place in Dusseldorf, Germany from 4-10 May, and then in two months' time it will make its Australian debut on Stand I 30 at Foodpro, taking place in Sydney from 16-19 July.

Depending on the product to be packed, the G 700 can produce tray packs with or without modified atmosphere.

When producing packs with modified atmosphere, the G 700 uses gas purging of the trays. There is no requirement to evacuate them. This means that the packaging procedure is more gentle and can even be used for delicate food products, according to Multivac. It is therefore possible to pack crumbly products or those ready-meal components, which are hot filled, in a consistent and reliable way.

The G 700 achieves cycle rates of up to 15 cycles per minute with modified atmosphere. When packing without modified atmosphere, up to 18 cycles per minute can be achieved.

In addition to plastic trays, the G 700 can also run trays made of aluminium or board, as well as multi-chamber trays and those with a wide variety of shapes, and the tray height can be up to a maximum of 110 mm.

Multivac says that the G 700 has a precise and reliable tray transport system, which ensures that the trays are transported very gently. The dies can be changed very simply and quickly.

When it comes to the loading and infeed of the trays, the G 700 can be equipped with Multivac belt systems or drag chain infeed systems, in which appropriate denesters can be integrated.

The machine comes equipped with an intuitive user interface for a high degree of process reliability and a high level of ergonomic operating convenience.
