Ilapak’s Weightronic WA 14-65 is often married with its Vegatronic 6000 vertical bagger to maximise overall line efficiency.
The versatile Vegatronic 6000 has become the bagger of choice for salad producers, owing to its ultra-hygienic construction and fast changeover capabilities.
The continuous motion bagger can pack both dry and wet products into pillow, block bottom, Quattro, EasyPack and Doy style formats with fast and tool-less changeover. Assisted forming tube removal, a dual film reel holder and automatic film reel splicing are among the features that enable operators to switch between products in a matter of minutes. The film carriage design enables packs of up to 300mm in width to be produced from virtually any film, including heavy laminates and thick polyethylene.
Complete IP65 protection is delivered through full stainless steel execution, isolating the electrical cabinet from the main machine frame, the absence of any welds and smooth, angled surfaces without recesses. This ultra-hygienic construction enables full washdown capability, even of the sealing elements.
The Vegatronic 6000 machine on show at Fruit Logistica 2017 will incorporate a conventional heat sealing head. The Vegatronic 6000 is also available with ultrasonic sealing for manufacturers looking to eliminate seal contamination and leaky seals in salad bags.
Salad producers running an Ilapak Vegatronic series VFFS with ultrasonic sealing technology can expect to see dramatic improvements in energy consumption and film usage, whilst slashing their leaky bag rate to new lows.
