ULMA Packaging, one of the leading packaging machinery and complete automated lines suppliers, has launched the VTC 740 vertical packaging machine, which incorporates various new systems designed to reduce downtime to a minimum.

Suitable for a wide range of market sectors, the new wrapper is said to be one of the most technologically advanced machines of its type available and is ideally suited for harsh factory environments such as wet packing rooms.

The VTC 740, an upgraded model of the VTC 700 range of vertical wrappers, is flexible and robust, incorporating a whole host of key features to help ensure speedy delivery of products to market.

Capable of speeds up to 140 packs per minute, it facilitates easy changes of the forming set and can be supplied in various formats to suit the different material types currently used in the market place.

Operator friendly and comes as standard with a printed film sensor, easy change over for the cross seal and vertical jaw, an operator panel option with the most used functions in one touch screen and a centralised greasing system. The VTC 740 is fully sealed and has been built to provide easy access for maintenance.

Constructed with key food industry requirements in mind, such as high levels of production, ergonomics, easy cleaning, low maintenance and hygiene, the VTC 740 can be standalone equipment or incorporated into a line.

ULMA’s UK managing director, Chris Pickles, said: “We are a leader with wrapping solutions that can help companies optimise their packaging to combat consumer food waste and improve pack presentation. The VTC 740 includes new systems that can help boost productivity for food processors by reducing format changing times and cleaning regimes.”

In addition to single equipment pieces, ULMA can also stream together stand-alone packaging machinery with the automation side of the business to provide customers with one single point of technical and sales contact.

Established in Northern Spain, and with 50 years of packaging machinery experience, ULMA Packaging now has subsidiaries in 18 countries offering a wide range of solutions for virtually any packaging requirement in the food and non-food sectors.
