Optima will be presenting its packaging solutions at the upcoming ProPak China trade fair, 17-19 July 2014 in Shanghai, China (Hall 4, Booth 5F20). The focus will be on precise dosing, flexibility, high outputs and line solutions.

In order to dose high-quality, expensive products, such as powdered milk, with absolute weight accuracy while still achieving high outputs, the OPTIMA FS machine comes with an optional integrated continuous topping-up system. This option is ideal for countries with compulsory minimum volumes, such as China, to minimise the amount of giveaway. The two integrated pre-dosing units fill the primary filling quantity, after which the topping-up system adds the rest to reach the nominal weight. The calibratable dynamic gross / tare weigher completes the integrated system. An output of 160 containers/min for 900g filling weight is possible with the topping-up function. Additional standard solutions up to 300 containers/min are also available.

For portion packages, such as coffee capsules or soft pods, Optima achieves outputs of up to 1,500 products/min, a level unsurpassed anywhere in the world. Furthermore, the OPTIMA CFL machines come with individual weight measurement and feedback to the dosing system for unrivalled filling accuracy when processing ground coffee. The sealing station uses ultrasonic welding.
