Horizontal packaging machine: all minipack®-torre models
Minipack®-torre manufactures various top of the range horizontal packaging machine models. Let us see the various types in detail and some example models.
Shrink wrapping machines
A horizontal packaging machine for heat-shrink film is the ideal choice in many sectors, from food to pharmaceutical. Heat-shrunk packages are among the most resistant, compact and aesthetically pleasing. The range of packaging machines with a shrink oven includes the following models:
- manual, such as Replay 55 EVO;
- semi-automatic, such as Modular 50 S (complete with a retraction tunnel);
- automatic, such as Pratika 56 MPE X1 (complete with a retraction tunnel).
The sleeve wrapper is the horizontal packaging machine that can pack large-sized packages with a much more resistant film than the others, in single or multiple packages. It is the most used machine for packaging bottles and jars. Minipack®-torre includes a vast range of packaging machine models:
- manual, semi-automatic and automatic, for all production capacities;
- 90° loading belt, which allows you to easily group small-medium sized products (cans, water bottles, canned products, etc.) before creating the bundle;
- high speed, namely machines equipped with an inverter that allows a higher speed to be reached;
- seamless film, which seal with the product in motion thereby saving significant time;
- with a multi-line divider, which allows several products to be brought on the sealing line simultaneously, thereby accelerating the bundling process.
Flow-pack horizontal packaging machines
A flow pack is a special horizontal packaging machine to pack baked goods, sweets and small non-food products in single packs. Packaging consists of the typical “pad” with 3 seals (one longitudinal, 2 at the ends); packaging is very quick and versatile.
The advantages of a horizontal packaging machine, from safety to speed
Horizontal packaging brings several advantages to production, such as:
- product safety - packaging created by the horizontal packaging machines protects the products from external agents, thereby ensuring maximum hygiene and better conservation;
- integrability - every horizontal packaging machine can be inserted in existing lines, thereby obtaining efficient automatic packaging systems;
- production speed - the machine can function in fully automatic mode, relieving the operator from constant interventions to follow the packaging stages;
- robustness - all horizontal packaging machines are made with high quality materials, such as stainless steel;
- ease of use - from the loading stages to format change.
Any machine you will choose for your packaging department will pack any possible product within the allowed dimensions: food products, CDs, video games, publications, home care and food products, components and various objects as well as drugs - to name just some examples of a virtually endless list.
