ULMA Packaging's new flowrapper targets fresh food products

May 27, 2015 03:38 PM

ULMA Packaging has added another innovative packaging solution to its renowned selection of flowrapping equipment, with the launch of the FM200 for wrapping fresh food pillow pack style with three seals in a modified atmosphere (MAP).


One of the UK’s leading suppliers of packaging machinery and complete automated lines, ULMA’s new FM200 horizontal flowrapper is designed with improved functionality and ease of use for sealing poultry, fruit and vegetables, meat, dairy and fish.



But what’s so appealing about the FM200 is its construction: compact and convenient, it has been designed with smaller businesses in mind. The FM200 is affordable too, a manageable price tag reflecting its versatility.



Dave Berriman is ULMA’s Technical Manager; he explains that the FM200 model is ideal for SMEs: “The FM200 is ideal for the small to medium sized factory. It’s very flexible and can be used for a huge variety of food products to extend their shelf life. Anything from meat, dairy, fish to convenience food – the FM200 can be used on hamburgers or hotdogs.”



Its stainless steel frame reduces the accumulation of impurities allowing optimum cleaning and hygiene, while its touch screen control panel enables easier operation with various parameter settings for each product. ‘No product No Bag’ and ‘Misplaced product safety’ functions are standard in this machine.




The new FM200 is the result of ULMA’s commitment to innovation and technological development, which has given rise to a new family of machines, providing improved performance and ease of use, such as the Artic Quad cook-in-the-bag wrapping technology; which allows consumers to put a chicken in the oven without ever handling the raw poultry.




ULMA is renowned for improving production efficiencies and pack designs. The FM200 can be adapted for a variety of films and integrated into a high-speed automated line by ULMA, featuring row distribution systems, product buffering, recycling during production, product orientation and automatic indexing.




Building on the success of earlier ULMA packaging machines, this latest model has been built using the latest technology to push the boundaries of food packaging and meet customers’ most demanding requirements.
