Needs-based packaging solutions for fresh fruit, vegetables and salads



With its R 105 thermoforming packaging machine, MULTIVAC offers an entry-level model for producing MAP and vacuum packs, and this machine will be shown at the trade fair with a perforator for making FreshSAFE packs. This packaging concept enables fruit, vegetables and salads to remain fresh for longer without the use of preservatives, since the standard upper web is perforated during the packaging procedure in such a way, that the particular requirements of the product are met and an equilibrium atmosphere (EMAP) is produced within the pack.

MULTIVAC will also be presenting the fully automatic T 300 H traysealer, which is a versatile machine for packing fruit and raw or processed vegetables with a high product protrusion. The compact model is designed for small and medium-sized batches and can be built as a multi-track machine. Electric drive systems for the tray transport, lifting unit and film trim winder ensure that it has an energy-efficient method of operation.

In addition to this, the semi-automatic T 250 traysealer can also be seen in Berlin. Thanks to its mobile castors, the space-saving model can be used very flexibly, and it offers a wide variety of individual equipment options including flexible die design, automatic tray drawer, precise cutting systems for inside or outside cut, and a vacuum pump that can be integrated in the machine.

As regards the chamber machine sector, the manufacturer from the Allgäu region of Germany will be showing the C 200 chamber machine, a space-saving tabletop unit for the fast and efficient packing of small to medium-sized quantities of salads, nuts and dried fruit in film pouches. The C 200 is robust, precise and exceptionally efficient, and it can be used very flexibly. An optionally available lid lock enables delicate products, such as salads for example, to be packed at ambient pressure. All the machine models on display are characterised by their simple operation, excellent pack quality and groundbreaking MULTIVAC Hygienic DesignTM.
