The business is meeting the packaging needs for bigger and bigger batches and different types of convenience foods – antipasto, ready-made salads and food products, different types of freshly sliced fruits and vegetables. German technologies set the world standards. The packaging process is more precise and can now be applied for even more delicate products. This enables the reliable packaging of friable food products, ready meals, as well as products with a hot filling. The packaging method is more energy-efficient. For the first time at Meatmania 2018, we will see deep drawing packaging. The high-performance thermoforming machine is an affordable and automated alternative to the thermal shrink packaging machines.

The flowpack machine by the Italian company PFM Packaging Machinery packages food and nonfood products, including pharmaceutical, cosmetic products and others. It stands out with its stable, easy-to-clean body of carbon steel, compact design, intuitive software. Maximum speed is up to 140 products per minute.

Packaging with the right design for your business

A wide variety of labeling products complements the exhibitions’ portfolio. Interesting proposals include ink jet industrial printers manufactured by Koenig and Bauer Coding, Germany (until recently known as KBA-Metronic) labeling machines manufactured by ARCA, Italy.

A variety of print & apply systems first print the variable information on the label and then apply it on the product “on the move”. These systems have wide applications in the milk processing industry, winery, bread and confectionary production.

Ink jet printers by the global brand Epson eliminate traditional problems of thermal overprinting. No more delays, disruptions, losses or inconvenience. No more overprinted lists with labels, interruptions in production, lost orders or late shipments.
