Aug 02, 2017 03:36 PM

PPMA 2017, 26th – 28th September, NEC, Birmingham Stand B60

A regular exhibitor at PPMA, ULMA Packaging Ltd will again be attending this major event at the NEC in Birmingham, displaying the latest high-speed technology developed by one of the world’s leading suppliers of packaging machinery and complete automated lines.  


ULMA’s technical team will be on hand to provide details of the huge variety of packaging solutions it has available to cater for almost any sector, including the latest developments in Vertical Form Fill and Seal (VFFS) technology, which combines the new, patented Air Extraction System (AES).


Among the equipment being showcased by ULMA, who prides itself on being part of a co-operative committed to the global packaging machinery marketplace, will be the TSA 680, an automatic tray sealer ideal for all kinds of preformed trays. This robust technology can be integrated into process automation and combines high production speeds with exceptional accuracy.


Powered by innovative Continuous Motion Control (CMC) software to optimise production by ensuring that trays are always accurately positioned in the sealing area, this tray sealer can deliver impressive throughput of up to six trays per cycle at speeds up to 25 cycles/pm.  


Fully automated lines will be demonstrated by ULMA at the show with equipment including horizontal flowrappers, vertical baggers, thermoforming and skin packaging, something to suit any packaging requirement and all budgets.  


ULMA’s UK Managing Director, Chris Pickles, said: “PPMA is always a big deal for us and has been very successful in the past in terms of business generated from the show. Each year more companies are seeking out ULMA for the latest developments in cutting-edge packaging technology and this year will be no different.”


The flowrappers ULMA will be demonstrating are the horizontal FV 35 and Florida machines. The versatile FV 35 creates a vacuum pouch from a single shrink barrier film, suitable for processed meat and cheese, as well as pork and lamb. The Florida offers a three-sealing pillow pack with high performance levels.


Also on show will be the VTI 640 vertical bagger, one of ULMA’s popular range of high speed bagging equipment designed for packing a wide variety of food products, while ULMA’s TFS Thermoformers use specially designed top films for enhancing the product’s appearance and extending shelf life.

An approved supplier to multiple retailers and small businesses alike, ULMA has the biggest range of solutions available anywhere in the UK and is leading the way for innovative, efficient and robust packaging equipment.
