Carrera 500
flow wrapper

Entry-level electronic machine, fully PLC controlled with an intuitive HMI: the best flow wrapper for small range applications where fast and easy to operate size change operation are required.

Flow wrapper

This successor to the Carrera 1000 responds to the budget, build quality and flexibility requirements of mid-range food and non-food operations. ILAPAK has balanced these demands by rationalising the number of added features and re-engineering the machine frame design and sealing system.

This latest addition to the Carrera portfolio incorporates incremental innovations that have enabled ILAPAK to stretch the performance: price ratio of the system. A radical re-engineering of the machine frame has produced the first ILAPAK flow wrapper with a tubular frame for added robustness, whilst on the sealing system, heavy duty shafts and surrounding bearings allow for greater and more consistent seal-jaw pressure. This improved jaw profile results in superior seal appearance and integrity.

flow wrapper for flatbread

Flexible packaging machinery manufacturer ILAPAK is once again showing its commitment to the bakery industry with the launch of a new flow wrapper for tortilla and flatbread applications.Responding to the budget and performance demands of mid-sized bakeries, the Delta EZ combines an affordable price tag with the ability to produce hermetically sealed extended shelf life packs at speeds of up to 100ppm, thanks to an innovative longitudinal sealing system.

Vision 2000
Counting machine

The centrepiece of ILAPAK’s new suite of counting systems is the state-of-the-art Vision 2000, which offers a flexible, accurate and low-noise alternative to conventional vibratory counters. Using advanced line scan camera technology, the Vision 2000 counts and feeds baked goods into boxes or the infeed of a VFFS machine. Speeds of up to 100,000 products per hour with over 99% accuracy can be achieved.
