Mosca Direct has launched two machines; SoniXs MS-VA and SoniXs TRS-VA in the UK, to use in extreme conditions such as dampness or with contaminated products.
The technology utilises side-seal strappers that are corrosion resistant and work with Mosca’s SoniXs and can be used in meat, poultry and fish processing and packing.
Adrian Ritzhaupt, head of product management, Mosca, said side-seal strappers have long been successful in diverse industries.
“Our customers can now also draw on our patented ultrasonic technology, SoniXs in these machines,” he added.
Since the sealing unit is located on the side of the strap guide frame rather than below it, process liquids or other foreign particles flow away without soiling it.
This makes the machines suited to food processing industries such as fish and meat, which are characterised by strict hygiene standards and have to deal with process fluids or perishable product residues.
The SoniXs MS-VA is a manual machine, while the SoniXs TRS-VA works in a fully automated production line in which packages are fed automatically.
Both products can strap variable product sizes at up to 33 cycles per minute, depending on product and in-feed system.
