HAM, CHEESE, POULTRY AND FISH PACKING
When it comes to packing smaller products such as ham, cheese, poultry and fish, the MULTIVAC B 425 offers a very high output thanks to its compact and narrow design, small footprint, durability, easy operation and the highest level of hygiene. This new model, which is designed in the MULTIVAC Hygienic Design, is aimed at food processing companies, and it is particularly suitable for the automated packaging of sausage, ham, bacon, fresh meat, fish and cheese in film pouches. In many cases, more products per shift can be packed on the B 425 than on the larger and supposedly higher-output chamber belt machines. The new B 425 therefore offers an outstanding price-to-performance ratio when packaging smaller food products in film pouches.
