Ulma Packaging has unveiled an improved version of vertical flowrapper VTC 740 packaging machine.

Introduced under the firm's VTC 700 range, the new wrapper is flexible and robust, and is suitable for multiple market sectors, even in harsh factory environments, including wet packing rooms.

Equipped with new systems, the version has been designed to reduce downtime and time-to-market, ensuring speedy delivery of the products.

"The VTC 740 includes new systems that can help boost productivity for food processors by reducing format changing times and cleaning regimes."

The fully sealed VTC 740 features a printed film sensor, an operator panel option with frequently used functions on one touchscreen, along with a centralised greasing system.

It also enables easy changeover for the cross seal and vertical jaw, which increases its proudtion capacity to nearly 140 packs a minute.

Ulma can deliver the machinery in multiple formats to suit market availability of materials.

Ulma Packaging UK managing director Chris Pickles said: "We are a leader with wrapping solutions that can help companies optimise their packaging to combat consumer food waste and improve pack presentation.
