All the latest trends and innovations within the meat industry at a glance: on May 7th 2016, the IFFA exhibition in Frankfurt (Germany) will open its doors to the global meat sector. At this leading international trade fair, pioneering solutions for the entire meat supply chain will be presented. SEALPAC, manufacturer of innovative tray-sealing and thermoforming technology, focuses its exhibition appearance primarily on cost savings.

At its stand C10 in hall 11.0, under the slogan “It’s all about your costs!, the packaging specialist will for example demonstrate the latest in tray-sealing technology with a full line solution. For the latest packaging trends from around the world, make sure to visit the supermarket of the future at the biggest SEALPAC stand ever.

Optimal line efficiency with SEALPAC tray-sealing technology

A complete line solution, with each component tuned to achieving a reliable and cost efficient packaging process: that is what visitors can expect from SEALPAC’s traysealer division. The current generation is manufactured completely out of stainless steel, and characterized by a long life span with low maintenance requirements. The robust design of the SEALPAC A-series traysealers ensures highest outputs, yet smoothest production runs. At the exhibition, a SEALPAC A7 traysealer will be placed in line with a multi-head weigher. As such, the line combines highest performance with ultimate reliability in the continuous packaging of loose fill products. Another highlight within the line is SEALPAC’s MA1200 servo-driven denester. With its extra-large magazine, which is capable of simultaneously holding different tray formats, and which requires minimum re-loading, the line efficiency is optimized even further.

SEALPAC also develops packaging solutions to maximize efficiency, like for example with its EasyLid concept. This innovative system combines a unique injection-moulded tray with a special tray-sealing technology, allowing for sealing and lidding in one single step. Next to savings in materials, no additional lidding system is required, meaning the production line will have a much smaller footprint. An interesting option, not only from the perspective of costs, is in-mould labelling. Here, the labelling process is carried out during the production of the tray, resulting in a fully integrated label and an eye-catching presentation.

Trending topics in the world of fresh food packaging

SEALPAC’s supermarket of the future will provide an exciting overview of packaging trends from around the globe. Trade visitors can expect valuable information about the latest packaging technologies and materials, which have been driving the food industry in recent years, and which meet the highest standards in quality, functionality and retail presentation. Not to be missed are SEALPAC’s own TraySkin xplus system for steaks and joints, which will be demonstrated live as well. Moreover, in a realistic retail environment, we will showcase numerous innovations from around the world, such as the ThermoSkin solution for sliced meat, the SealCup packaging system for oxygensensitive meat spreads, and ready meals in ovenable and microwavable packaging.
