    Pack life science and healthcare products securely, flexibly and efficiently

    Medical devices and sensitive products place the highest demands on pack quality and secure packaging processes. Since the trend in the medical sector towards greater product individualisation, complexity and variety continues unabated, leading increasingly to ever smaller batch sizes, MULTIVAC will be presenting at MedtecLIVE 2020 a number of flexible solutions for packing small product series reliably and efficiently. Another focus at the trade fair will be identification and inspection systems, which make a major contribution to higher levels of product and patient safety.

    From its traysealer range MULTIVAC will be showing the semi-automatic T 260 traysealer, which was specially developed for the high demands of the medical devices industry. The features of this compact machine are its precise temperature control and distribution, as well as its highly controlled sealing pressure, and it therefore offers the maximum level of pack quality, reproducibility and process reliability.

    Sustainable packaging solutions for fruit and vegetables

    From 5 to 7 February in Berlin MULTIVAC will be presenting its wide range of solutions for packing fruit and vegetables. In addition to packaging solutions, which contribute to extending the shelf life of fresh products, another major focus of the trade fair will be the presentation of sustainable packaging concepts and attractive labelling solutions for fruit and vegetables as well as snacks and fresh cut products of all types.

    The exhibits will include the TX 710, a traysealer from the new X-line machine generation. The features of this traysealer are its innovative machine technology, comprehensive sensor system, intelligent control and high degree of process reliability - and it sets the benchmark in terms of pack quality and consistently high cycle output. At the trade fair MULTIVAC will be showing an application for packing strawberries in trays made of corrugated board, which are sealed with a PET single-layer film.

    The sustainable packing of corncobs will be demonstrated on a compact R 085 thermoforming packaging machine. This efficient machine is aimed particularly at manufacturers, who produce smaller batch sizes. If the machine is designed as the R 085 e-concept version, it can even be operated without compressed air and water, and this offers a high degree of flexibility in the positioning of the machine in the production environment.

    The XMesh® and FreshSafe packaging concepts will also be presented at the trade fair. XMesh® is a material which, thanks to its net-like structure, provides the air permeability that is so important for fruit and vegetables, and therefore ensures that an extended shelf life is achieved for the product. In addition to this, the FreshSafe system for thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers will also be shown, in which the upper web is perforated inline during the packaging process. The perforation pattern can be individually designed for the product that is to be packed. This means that a defined gas permeability can be set for EMAP packs, increasing the shelf life of the product significantly. This solution is particularly cost-effective, since standard packaging materials can be used, meaning that there is no requirement to stock materials with different perforations.

    And last but not least, the L 310 conveyor belt labeller for wrap-around labelling of packs (full wrap labelling) will also be shown to the public. This type of labelling offers many possibilities in the design of the pack, and this in turn contributes significantly to increasing the attractiveness of these packs at the point of sale.

    Flexible packaging solutions for small to medium-sized batches

    At Compamed, which takes place from 18 to 21 November, MULTIVAC will be showcasing its comprehensive expertise in automation and packaging of medical products in small to medium-sized batches. These efficient solutions are ideally suited to packing a wide range of products in many different pack formats.

    One of the MULTIVAC highlights at the exhibition is a packaging line for sterile medical products, which is equipped with an automatic infeed system for loading pre-filled glass or plastic syringes. The heart of the line is a R 245 thermoforming packaging machine, which is capable of being freely configured. The infeed system, which brings the products directly into the pack cavities in a very controlled and reliable way, consists of a shaft infeed system, a separating wheel, a transport conveyor and an H 242 handling module. For printing the packs with variable production data, a high-performance digital printer from Bell-Mark is used, which features a large print area and excellent print quality on a wide range of materials. A visual inspection system from MULTIVAC provides automatic monitoring of quality and print. All the MULTIVAC components are synchronised with the thermoforming packaging machine, and they can be operated conveniently and reliably via its control terminal.
