ULMA Packaging UK has launched the FM300C horizontal form fill seal flow wrapper, in a bid to meet increasing poultry processor demand for whole chicken packaging.
The FM300C builds is designed for the packaging of whole trussed and untrussed birds at a rate of up to 60 packs per minute.
Key attributes include an extra 25mm height capacity that increases the jaw opening size to 200mm, in order to deal with the packaging of larger poultry, such as turkey. To facilitate the quick changing of materials, a double reel holder makes it simple to alternate between using laminated and BDF films. The electrical cabinet, which is usually found in a separate box, has also been integrated into the rear cabinet with the mechanical movements providing ease of access to all components, having everything in one place.
James Couldwell, Business Manager at ULMA Packaging UK, said: “It is great to be able to share with poultry processors the strides ULMA has taken to bring the next generation of whole chicken packaging through the FM300C.”
