Vegatronic 2600 with Vision 3000 -
Counting by vision and vertical bagging

Vision 3000 is a vision system using laser technology and will be running in line with an intermittent vertical form-fill-seal machine, the Vegatronic 2600.
Together, as a fully integrated solution for bakeries, these machines will be displayed as a complete bagging line for bread rolls.
By means of a combination of laser and line scan cameras, Vision 3000 guarantees accurate checking and counting operations to verify product height, length, width and surface. Feeding products at high speed, Vision 3000 is so flexible it will handle fresh, par-baked, frozen and raw dough products, whether baguettes, pretzels, rolls, bagels, donuts or croissants.

Delta 3000 -
M.A.P. flow wrapping

Delta 3000 is one of the market’s best-known flow wrapping machines offering M.A.P, hermetic sealing and hygienic design.
A key feature available on Delta 3000 will be demonstrated at IBA and regards long-dwell sealing technology to ensure hermetic seals for products processed in a modified atmosphere. In view of a growing trend towards sustainable packaging materials, typically hard to handle, containing high proportions of paper or recyclable mono-material, plastic based on PE or PP, at the show, the Delta 3000 will demonstrate its long-dwell sealing capabilities which cover several new materials and enable companies to be well prepared for the future.

Loading system and flow wrapping

Synchronising the stages of a production line improves efficiency and this is one of the key benefits seen when using FLOWPOCKET by IMA Record to automatically load buns onto the BS RS (Bottom Seal / Rotating Seal) version of the PANDA flow wrapping machine.
Perfect for a broad range of regular, small and medium-sized products, PANDA BS RS reaches an output of up to 300 ppm. At IBA 2023, the line will be equipped to seal mono-material plastic PE film as well as compostable barrier material. Sealing packets of buns with a rotating jaw, PANDA is fed using the extremely flexible FLOWPOCKET. Featuring 3 pocket trains, FLOWPOCKET channels the buns into independent pockets, so that the process can be synched more precisely along the line. In the exhibited solution, groups of 2 buns are assembled, one pair above the other. A perfect alternative to pick&place systems, FLOWPOCKET is easy to set up, quick to implement changeover and synchronised to perfection.
