German packaging equipment manufacturer Multivac is set to present its chamber belt machine B 325, which is used to pack food products in film pouches, at Interpack 2017.
The B 325 machine will be extended to a complete shrink packaging line with its new compact SE 320 shrink tank for producing shrink packs.
Currently being used by customers worldwide, the machine is mainly used to pack large batches of processed and fresh meat products, such as sausages, ham and bacon.
Featuring a width of 1,000mm and a height of 180mm, the B 325 can also be used to produce maturation and transportation packs for cheese blocks and catering cuts, including beef fillets and haunches.
In addition, the chamber of the machine is equipped with two 1,000mm-long plugin sealing bars at the front and back, allowing it to be loaded from both sides.
Multivac’s new 1.1m SE 320 shrink tank unit can also be integrated with the company’s thermoforming packaging machines.
Products weighing up to 80kg to be conveyed on an automatic infeed conveyor from the chamber belt or thermoforming packaging machine into the shrink tank, which can hold up to 360l of water.
According to Multivac, the line can also be fitted with the company's TE 115 drying tunnel to dry the resulting products.
