Visitors to Ulma’s stand at the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association show, which was staged at the National Exhibition Centre near Birmingham earlier this month (September 29 to October 1), would have been introduced to the company's line automation capability.

Ulma showcased a complete automated line, featuring loading, packaging, weighing and labelling, case packing, palletising/de-palletising, internal case and tray transport.

Other equipment on show included the new VTC 740 vertical wrapping machine, which incorporates various innovative features to reduce downtime to a minimum. It can change the forming size to allow for different portions and has the versatility to adapt to any film type.

Also on display at the show was a TSA 680 automatic tray sealer for all types of trays and materials. Designed for integration into medium- to high-speed production lines, the TSA 680 can seal modified atmosphere packs, vacuum and skin packs, depending on the requirements of the product to be packaged.

Completing its exhibits was the TFS Skin 407 thermoformer and flowrapper. The TFS 407 uses specially designed top films for enhancing a product’s appearance and extending shelf-life. It makes a vacuum pack that protects and fits around the product like a second skin and is especially suited for fresh and processed meat, fish, poultry, ready meals, cheese and pâtés.
