The international firm, part of a multi-faceted co-operative which is totally committed to the Global Packaging Machinery marketplace, is targeting the fresh produce sector with the innovative VTI 600 and VTC 800 ultrasonic Vertical Form Fill Seal (VFFS) machines, developed to provide customers with continuous packing at high production speeds.

In the UK, over 2 million tonnes of fresh produce are lost or wasted each year in the supply chain alone (Source WRAP). Some of this waste can be incurred at the packaging stage due to protruding leaves or stalks compromising the seal integrity during packing.  

ULMA’s VTI 600 and VTC 800 packaging technology is ideal for handling fresh produce such as kale leaf, cabbage leaf, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, carrots, florets and salads - VFFS ultrasonic sealing equipment helps in the fight against food waste by detecting protruding items and moving them out of the way before sealing the bag.

Both the VTI 600 and VTC 800 offer a range of wrapping options to form pillow, flat and re-closable packs. An optimised, hygienic design makes the equipment ideal for harsh environments by providing full accessibility for any cleaning regime, as well as minimising maintenance costs. 

The models are robust and highly reliable, house the latest generation of electric component and are operated by an industrial PC touch screen boasting many production features. They offer a compact footprint, strong frame and mechanical reliability, making them suitable for current and future needs of the vertical packaging market. Individual solutions can be developed to meet customer’s specific needs.

ULMA VFFS Business Manager, Steve Brooks, said: “This new ultrasonic vertical sealing equipment is ideally suited for the fresh produce industry, offering less downtime and reduced food waste due to the 100% seal integrity. Our machines are manufactured to the highest quality and we will work with customers to ensure they have the perfect solution.” 

VFFS equipment can help companies optimise their packaging to combat consumer food waste and improve pack presentation. ULMA’s systems can also boost productivity for food processors by reducing format changing times and cleaning regimes.

Innovative packaging technology – backed up by ULMA’s complete spares and service support – offers the food industry equipment and fully integrated solutions that are highly productive and efficient to meet the growing demand from retailers for extended shelf life, great commercial visibility and speed to market.
