Ilapak’s Carrera 1000 flow wrapper has been redesigned to offer the same modularity and hygienic construction as the top-of-the-range Carrera 6000 series, but at a mid-range price point.
Producers and packers of items like tomatoes, apples, peaches, plums and kiwis can take advantage of shorter lead times and lower cost of ownership as a result of the Carrera 1000’s modular design. Users can customise their machine by selecting only the modules they need, and can easily add modules at a later date. The machine’s modularity also makes maintenance quicker and easier, as individual sections can be removed rather than having to dismantle the entire machine.
Flexibility is maximised through the use of servo motors and a PLC control platform, which enable fast and easy size change operations.
The flow wrapper offers complete IP65 protection, enabling full washdown - even of the sealing elements. This ultra-hygienic design has been achieved through full stainless steel execution, isolating the electrical cabinet from the main machine frame and smooth, angled surfaces without recesses. The ergonomic cantilever design makes for easy access for cleaning.
At Fruit Logistica 2017, the Carrera 1000 will be shown running apples on trays, but for producers who want to cut packaging usage, a trayless version is also available.
