Anuga FoodTec: IMA Dairy&Food presents the next innovative packaging solutions
The GYRO CUP provides the latest technology for filling all a number of products in different sizes of cups or tubs.
Thanks to a single platform utilizing as many standard components as possible, it is possible to cover a large range of cup profiles and shapes.
The machine is able to accommodate products by direct feed,
compensator, or can be installed with a hopper for products with alternative characteristics. Quick and easy changeover for format parts combined with the recipe functionality achieved with the use of integrated servo technology has minimized downtime between product and packaging changeovers.
The new rotary filler features a new, innovative central drive solution that offers better hygienic conditions and better access for the machine operator. The multi- digit turntable allows the filling of 2, 3 or 4 cups per segment. Due to its compact design, the machine has a small footprint.
The GYRO CUP ensures an excellent filling accuracy and extreme flexibility.
The output of the new rotary machine is up to 9,600 cups per hour depending on cup format and filling volume. The application range covers practically all types of liquid to high viscosity products – with or without particles – from yoghurt and dessert products to butter, margarine, sauces, dressings, jams, baby food, drinks, etc.
Another highlight is the “ERMETIKA” of IMA Dairy&Food Fillshape which will be presented to the public for the first time. The high-speed continuous motion rotary machine fills and seals pre-made spouted pouches and is of particular interest for liquid products. It covers a wide range of pouch shapes and sizes and can be easily and quickly adapted to different films, spouts and caps of different suppliers.
The machine works with a special filling technique (“filling through the spout”), under which the spout is sealed on the pouch before filling. The filling capacity of the pouch can be fully exploited by means of the “filling through the spout” method, which results in significant savings in materials. ERMETIKA is the only machine on the market able to control the sealing of the pouch.
