Uxbridge-based Ilapak has introduced a new flow-wrapper specifically for bakery firms.

The company’s Delta X model takes its modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) flow-wrapping platform to “a new performance level on bakery applications”​, according to the company.

Taking its high-spec Delta 6000 as a starting point, Ilapak removed some of the features not needed by bakery users and redesigned the flow-wrapper for faster operation, improved sealing performance and easier operability. The new Delta X model features heavy-duty shafts, bigger motors and gearboxes, and helical bevel gears for a more robust transversal sealing system design, said the company. This allowed greater and more consistent seal jaw pressure to be applied, while long dwell sealing jaws ensured maximum hermetic seal integrity, it added.

According to Ilapak, the model sports a tubular frame that weighs 20% more than the previous version and has a lower centre of gravity to optimise stability and minimise vibration at high speeds. The overall inline footprint of the machine has been reduced, making it especially suitable for space-constrained bakery plants.

Ilapak has also created 20% more space for reel loading – reducing the number of rollers, film splicing and changeovers – with these tasks now able to be performed closer to floor level. A pneumatic locking device on the shaft means film reel changes can be made rapidly.

Two configurations are available – a narrow model for products up to 200mm in width and a wider version for products up to 450mm in width. Each is offered in either stainless steel or painted.

Ilapak said the new model underlined its commitment to “sector-specific research and development”​.
