The G Mondini Cigno Automatic Compact Tray Sealer is making its debut in Australia through the company's partnership with Select Equip. 

The company says small to medium producers in need of a fully automatic tray sealing system can now access it at a cost comparable to a semi-automatic setup. 

According to Select Equip, the Cigno is the only tray sealer of its kind in Australia, with features and benefits that it says set it apart from the competition, including the tool-less changeover capability, compact footprint, easy wash-down design, and highly competitive price point.

"The Cigno is the result of G Mondini’s dedication to meeting the evolving needs of the market," said James White, marketing and sales director at Select Equip. "This fully automatic tray sealer fills a crucial gap, offering a compact solution with unmatched convenience, accessibility, and affordability."

The Cigno machine will now be available onshore, making it a more affordable option for small to medium-sized businesses.
