This line features IMA Ilapak WA 16-10 slim weigher and Vegatronic 6000 VFFS machine and is specifically conceived for high speed application thanks to the short drop height on the weigher and continuous film motion on the bagger but at the same time it suits brittle products as well being so compact.

The vertical bagger is available in painted machine frame and stainless steel and can be equipped with different solutions to enhance the OEE efficiency, in fact film or size changeover can be executed in a rapid manner thanks to a forming tube fitted on a swivel arm and a very ergonomic film splicing table that can be vacuum assisted, heat assisted, dual reel holder and automatic splicer as well.

IMA Ciemme AC continuous cartoner                  

IMA Ciemme AC is a continuous cartoner machine designed to handle a wide range of carton formats allowing a gentle product loading at high speeds.

Bags, arriving from vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machine, are conveyed to trap loaders (“stars”) to drop products into machine lug infeed conveyor. The AC uses a 3-head rotary feeder, with positive pre break, for maximum speed and efficiency, a barrel loader for smooth introduction ending with glue flap closing. The robust, low maintenance, easy cleaning, full visibility design ensures a high operational efficiency and long lifetime resulting in low operational cost. Touch screen controls deliver ease of use and step by step changeover for reliable and repeatable operations.
