Multivac places energy-saving, entry-level model into mass production

08 January 2013

Multivac will show a particularly energy-efficient, entry-level model, the R 095 e-concept, among the thermoforming packaging ma-chines at IFFA 2013, the largest international exhibition for the meat industry in Frankfurt.

The packaging machine manufac-turer presented the e-concept three years ago at IFFA 2010 as a machine design concept. The first machine model went into mass production at the end of 2011.

The hand-produced meat industry is among the particularly energy-intensive trades in Europe. Speciality meat businesses and butch-ers shops are therefore especially affected by rising energy prices, and they are becoming increasingly interested in energy-saving models for their production and packing.

Multivac will be showing a suitably energy-efficient, mass-production model for entry-level customers at IFFA 2013 (04.-09 May) as part of its section of automatic thermoforming machines. The R 095 e-concept consumes at least 20 percent less energy than comparable models and is particularly suited to small and me-dium-sized food-producing companies. The lifting units and cutting units are electrically driven.

Combined with its innovative forming and sealing processes, the e-concept makes the conventional sup-ply of compressed air and cooling water completely unnecessary. The compact thermoforming packaging machine not only therefore saves energy resources, it is also flexible in its choice of location since all that it requires is a power supply.

"We have replaced all pneumatically-driven modules with electrical drive units, which have a very high degree of efficiency. One effect of this is the comparatively low operating costs for the customer. Another consequence is that the investment costs for putting the machine into service are significantly lower than with comparable models, where companies first have to invest in additional com-pressed air and water connections", explains Valeska Haux, Mar-keting Manager at MULTIVAC. In 2010 the e-concept received the award at the Salon de l'Emballage in Paris from the renowned jury of packaging experts.

Integrated slicer
With its overall length of 2.30 metres, the R 095 is also MULTI-VAC's smallest machine model in the range of automatic thermo-forming machines. This means that it is particularly suited to smaller as well as larger hand-production companies. The R 095 is equipped with an interface for installing a slicer. MUL-TIVAC will be showing the R 095 at IFFA 2013
