Proseal has launched a revised GT5 packing machine with technical developments for 200 plus trays per minute.
The machine can handle any type of packing operation including atmospheric sealing, MAP gas flushing, Vacuum MAP sealing, skin packaging below and above the flange, and Skin Deep, which allows a 100mm protrusion of product over the top of the tray.
Customers select the format types they want and these can be added to or taken off at any time so food manufacturers can change their pack formats.
“The flexibility of our GT5, combined with its high speed capacity, means food manufacturers have a machine more than capable of meeting both current and future production requirements,” said Steve Malone, director, Proseal.
The GT5 features the Pro-Motion, which speeds up the infeed of trays to the sealer, and Pro-Tect, a user login security system.
Pro-Motion uses motion and buffering technology to get trays to feed into a sealer without stopping. An auto-detect flow monitoring system regulates the speed of the infeed conveyor according to the numbers of trays being supplied.
Pro-Tect gives operators authorisation to use a machine. There are different levels of authorisation for individual personnel. The system keeps a log of information inputted for full traceability in the event of any problems and any attempt to log in above a person’s level of authorisation is registered and recorded.
