Ulma Packaging set for PPMA showcase of latest lines
The ULMA Packaging group will be using this year’s PPMA show starting tomorrow, focusing on a mission to support eco-friendly practices throughout manufacturing processes, with the business dedicated to reducing material usage and embracing sustainable production solutions, writes Neill Barston.
Visitors to the event at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, can find the business at stand B32, offers an extensive array of advanced machinery and applications, including Flow Pack (HFFS), Thermoforming (TF), Traysealing (TS), Vertical (VFFS), automation, end of line and product loading.
As the business noted, the show will feature two standout machines from its lineup. Firstly, the FR200 horizontal flow pack wrapper excels in working harmoniously with plastic-free packaging materials, contributing to reduced environmental impact; secondly, the VTI640 vertical form-fill-seal machine impresses with its incorporation of both Tight-Bag™ air extraction and Venturi systems.
The patented Tight-Bag technology efficiently removes air without compromising visual appeal or raising contamination risks, leading to a substantial reduction in plastic usage and operating at speeds of up to 70ppm. The Venturi system caters specifically to the loose-leaf salad market, gently pulling the product downward using air before sealing it securely, without causing damage.
“We are excited to be part of the PPMA Show again this year, where we will be showcasing our innovative and sustainable packaging solutions”, said James Coudwell, ULMA Packaging’s managing director.
“We are dedicated to reducing material usage and advancing sustainable packaging technologies without compromising on efficiency – our FR200 and VTI640 machines are perfect examples of how we can achieve this goal while addressing the specific needs of our customers. Together, we can make a difference and pave the way towards a more sustainable future for packaging, as promoted by our #ULMAweCare initiative.”
