Open-frame Vegatronic 2000OF combines features

18 January 2011

Ilapak has launched a open-frame vertical, form, fill and seal (VFFS) bagging machine, the Vegatronic 2000 OF

As well as offering exceptional performance and speeds, the new machine incorporates leading ultrasonic sealing technology and a ground-breaking open-frame design offering easy accessibility for fast servicing and maintenance. The new Vegatronic 2000 OF is ideal for prepared produce, salads, frozen foods and grated and shredded cheese.

The Vegatronic 2000 OF’s innovative open-frame design provides a number of important operational and hygiene benefits. The machine is easily accessible, allowing fast access for servicing and maintenance, reducing downtime and so increasing efficiency and productivity.

The Vegatronic 2000 OF’s design has minimised the number of moving parts and optimised their operation so as to significantly reduced maintenance costs throughout the life of the machine.

With no holes on the external side and rounded profiles there are minimal cavities for bacteria to accumulate, meaning machine cleaning is simple and fast, making it easier to comply with the food industry’s ever stricter hygiene regulations.

In addition to its revolutionary Ultrasonic sealing system, the Vegatronic 2000 OF also offers exceptional performance, incorporating a number of new features such as a new advanced control platform, advanced graphics, wide screen HMI and use of servo motors to improve speed and accuracy as well as increase efficiency and productivity.

The Vegatronic 2000 OF’s ultrasonic sealing solution delivers dramatically improved seal integrity and efficiencies. This ground-breaking technology minimises the amount of product damage in the seal area (which can discolour and contaminate the pack), and reduces leaker rates to a new low in industries such as salad, cheese and others.

Its advanced control platform uses the latest programming language, while colour touchscreen is easy to use with fast access and browsing through the menu, making it quick to carry out operations such as product changeovers.

Capable of speeds of up to 120 bags a minute, the Vegatronic produces a wide range of bags including pillow, block bottom, Quattro, stand-up Doy packs and zipper packs.

These features, together with enhanced reliability, top quality service and high quality, 100% commercially available components, are helping Ilapak to minimise their customers’ operating costs per pack, throughout the life of their machine.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
