Multi-Fill, represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies , have announced the successful testing of the MPFMP-060 filling machine. They used MPFMP-060 filling machine for new applications such as salsa and pomegranate seeds, after they received customer enquiries regarding the filling of these fragile food items.
The customers required a filling machine that would retain the shape and size of their delicate product after it passed through the system. The products are loaded into the top pan and manually fed to the filling tube by an operator. The head is designed with an adjustable volumetric pocket system equipped with a needle assembly to maintain the quality of the product. The food is then measured volumetrically and discharged into trays.
Rated at 60cpm, the MPFMP-060 semi-automatic filling system is chosen by companies who have lower speed production lines, with difficult to fill products such as rice, cooked pastas (short and long goods), cut vegetables and fruits, salads, cereals, seafood and shredded meats into a variety of containers including trays, cups, plates, jars and pouches.
The MPFMP-060 filling machine is a mobile unit which can be quickly cleaned for a product changeover or moved to a different production line in minutes, ready to fill a different product into a different container with no or few change parts.
Following are the features of MPFMP-060 filling machine:
- Adjustable volumetric pocket system for precision dosing
- No container-no fill function activated by proximity sensor
- Vacuum system which assists product flow, especially for traditionally difficult to handle products, eg. cooked spaghetti, IQF rice and wet salads
- Food grade stainless steel construction, in compliance with international standards
