Chocolate, confectionery and biscuit makers in the UK are being targeted with new flowrapping equipment from Ulma Packaging.

The latest addition to Ulma’s flowrapper range is the high speed FR 500, which is suitable for a wide range of films which maintain the texture and quality of chocolate, confectionery and biscuits.

It can wrap single chocolate bars at up to 600 packs a minute using a multi-axis control system that synchronises the main machine movements and comes with a variety of automatic feeders and autoloaders.

Ulma’s flowrappers are said to suit a spectrum of different sized slabs of candy and chocolate, such as mini and ‘fun sized’, ensuring extended shelf-life.

The FR 500 has been introduced to meet increasing demand from confectionery manufacturers for automated packaging systems which not only provide slick pack presentation but improved production. It can be integrated into a high-speed automated line, featuring row distribution systems, product buffering and recycling during production, product orientation and automatic indexing.

Chris Pickles, Ulma’s UK md, says: “The FR 500 has been developed to meet the need for flexibility and speed for flowrapping of different-sized bars and multipacks. We can supply a comprehensive range of versatile and well-designed equipment to meet all packaging needs in these growing sectors.”
