Machine Type MVZ–150 The Automatic Thermoform Packaging Machine







Purpose of Application


The automatic thermoform packaging machine MVZ-150 was conceived for large productions; it can be integrated in complete lines so it expresses its potentialities also in the interaction with other elements (automatic dosing system, multihead, systems of automatic loading). It meets the production needs of a large company with high automation level.

Preheating plates, forming mould, filling station, vacuum unit gas injection station, sealing and cutting station are the main units of the machine. Transportation of the packing film is carried out by an extra strong regina-griping chain.

You can obtain packages in plastic material both flexible and rigid, therefore linear and perimetric cuts (shaped).

User applications; forming, Sealing, Vacuum , Cutting

The MVZ –150 offers you a more comfortable working environment with a servo motor for digital advancement, a state-of the art PLC control system which allows for monitoring of parameters and necessary adjustments to be made easily and a large touch screen operator panel.

Application Areas Meat, Cheese Varieties, Olive, Ready Meals, Chicken, Sea Food, Dairy Deserts, Cake, Bread, Salami, Dry Fruit, Fresh Noodles, Medical Products
