ULMA to feature the latest in packaging technology at Foodex

The packaging machinery specialist's imposing stand (S271) at the NEC has plenty of visitor appeal, including the revolutionary Air Extraction System (Tight Bag) to tackle excess air in the bag from frozen products without affecting the integrity of the packaging.

Tight Bag will share star billing with an award-winning thermoformer (TFS407R), flow wrapper (Sienna) and continuous motion bagmaker (VTC840) to demonstrate the array of ULMA's robust and versatile kit, as well as the firm's expertise in supplying completely automated packaging lines.

Also featuring on stand will be the TSA680, one of an innovative range of tray sealing systems developed by ULMA for the UK market in response to customer demand for high speed machines that can handle packs of almost any shape, size, composition or MAP requirement. The sealers are suitable for a wide variety of applications including fresh produce, meat, ready meals and many other food products. Visitors can also find out more about ULMA's radical new vertical form fill and seal system, which can transform the packing of fresh herbs and light leaf salads.

In addition to the machines, there will be the font of all packaging knowledge in the shape of ULMA's technical team, who will be on hand at the exhibition to answer questions on the various advanced skin, film and wrapping technology that can be installed as part of an automatic packing line, or as a standalone manual feeding solution.
