Interpack 2023: Sealpac to debut up to 50% faster Amax traysealer
09 Mar 2023 --- Sealpac will showcase its new generations of traysealers and thermoformers producing smart, resource-saving packaging concepts at Interpack 2023 in Düsseldorf, Germany, from May 4-10.
The company states that the machines are energy-efficient, producing “attractive packs that combine maximum product safety with particularly economical materials,” whether for entry-level models or performance class.
“Flexibility is key more than ever. In the design of Sealpac packaging equipment, particular emphasis was placed on product changes without long interruptions. This holds for both thermoformers and traysealers,” Marcel Veenstra, marketing and communications manager at Sealpac, tells PackagingInsights.
“As such, Sealpac has developed a number of features that make our machines true and cost-efficient all-rounders. On our traysealers, for example, these include the possibility for tooling exchange from both sides of the machine, as well as our unique Sealpac tooling trolley.”
He underscores that the Amax -traysealers were designed in such a way that they allow for “extremely smooth production runs, unrivaled in the market until today.”
PackagingInsights will be reporting live from Interpack 2023 at booth B83 in Hall 8A.
Faster than before
Depending on the application, the Amax traysealer machines are up to 50% faster than previous generations. They are characterized by their low-wear and low-maintenance design, driven by servomotors that allow for smooth production runs.
“Each model within the Amax series is equipped with iMode control. It manages the speed of the entire process according to a simple principle: the number of packages to be sealed per minute, as specified by the operator,” continues Veenstra.
The amount of packages sealed per minute determines the speed of all subsequent processes. “The result is an increasingly optimal packaging process, which, if necessary, extends to the maximum physical limits set by the product and the packaging materials.”
Eco-positioned on the market
Additionally, the integrated EnergyManager provides beneficial energy use, and the air consumption of the traysealer has been reduced by up to 90%.
“A driving factor in the packaging industry is increased sustainability. This not only applies to the packaging itself, where we see a trend toward less plastic, more cardboard and increased recyclability, but also to the equipment,” Veenstra asserts.
“The latest generation of Amax-series traysealers can package any food product at the highest speeds and with minimal energy consumption.”
“Highest possible outputs”
The Amax process “ultra-light” trays, the weight of which has been reduced by 20% compared to conventional MAP trays. Hybrid packaging concepts with reduced plastic and high cardboard content, such as eTray, FlatSkin or FlatMap, can also be handled by the new traysealers.
“When performing at the highest possible outputs, all subsequent packaging machine processes have to be optimally synchronized. If not, there is bound to be a production stop, for example, because the top film tears,” says Veenstra.
The intelligent drive management of the Sealpac Amax traysealer reduces the maintenance effort and thus ensures optimal availability. All in all, the new series succeeds in optimally combining product safety, performance and efficient operation with more resource conservation.
“The Amax-traysealers were designed in such a way that they allow for extremely smooth production runs, unrivaled in the market until today,” he concludes.
