One-Stop-Shop Traysealer Line

In order to meet the growing demand for turnkey end-to-end solutions for packaging convenience products, MULTIVAC, Kansas City, Mo., presented a complete Multivac T600traysealer line, including a denester, drag-chain infeed conveyor, filling unit and inspection and marking equipment.

The heart of the line is the fully automatic T 600 traysealer, a machine in the medium-output range that seals up to 40 trays per minute. The T 600 can produce MAP packs with and without LID film, Isopak skin packs and packs with the Slicepak concept.

The trays are denested by a MULTIVAC Tray Denester (MTD), which is characterised by its lightweight construction and simple handling. The MTD complies with the MULTIVAC Hygienic Design and is therefore ideally suited for use in high-risk areas. The denester can be converted to different tray formats and is integrated in the MULTIVAC HMI 2.0 user interface of the T 600.

The infeed of the trays into the traysealer is provided by a MULTIVAC drag-chain conveyor (MDC), which positions the trays precisely at the tray gripper of the traysealer.

The trays are filled by a SD-M series filler, which is manufactured by Germany-based Maschinenfabrik Leonhardt GmbH. This filler is particularly suitable for the gentle filling of sensitive foodstuffs with a dosing output of 30-60 cycles per minute.

Quality control is performed by a curtainless X-ray inspection system that provides an inspection speed of up to 120 m per minute. The system checks the packaged product for foreign bodies, proper shape and completeness.

An L 301 conveyor belt labeller is integrated for labelling the trays. This is equipped with a label dispenser and operated via the HMI of the traysealer.
