TFS 500 hygienic design thermoformer

Hygienic thermoforming machine for flexible or rigid film with modified atmosphere (MAP) and vacuum options. Medium-high performance level.

The TFS 500 model is part of the new ULMA TFS Thermoforming line. This is an entirely new machine design concept. ULMA has redesigned every section of the thermo-forming machine, to surpass the rigorous hygiene and deep cleaning requirements demanded by today’s food and medical packaging industry.

The machine characteristics make it highly desirable for mixed production requirements, since formats can be easily changed to meet the needs of the customer.
It’s versatility, easy operation, and quick size change also make it suitable as a support machine for short run products, capable of both flexible and rigid packaging up to 700μ.
