Multivac to expand its portfolio with launch of new R 081 Thermoforming Packaging Machine

Thursday, Apr 23, 2015

With the new R 081 thermoform-ing packaging machine, MULTIVAC is expanding its portfolio with an entry-level model for packing products in small batches. The R 081, which is also suitable for use in cleanroom conditions, will be presented for the first time at ACHEMA (Hall 3.1, Stand C47) from 15 to 19 June 2015.

Increased pack security

The R 081 is equipped with electrical lifting units, which provide in-creased sealing forces and optimised distribution of sealing pressure. This enables a consistently high level of seal quality and increased pack security to be achieved.

High level of flexibility with regard to packaging materials and for-mats
The new compact model can run flexible and rigid films as well as pa-per-based packaging materials and Tyvek®. Vacuum packs and modi-fied atmosphere packs with reduced residual oxygen content can be produced.

Thanks to proven slide-in technology, the forming and sealing dies can be changed easily, quickly and reproducibly. This means that the R 081 can be used for the efficient packing of a wide range of products in small and medium batch sizes.

The R 081 is available in different nominal machine widths, and this ena-bles the formats to be laid out flexibly. The machine can be equipped as an option with various printing, labelling and monitoring systems. It is even possible to have manual advance of individual cycles with a foot switch, where products are being loaded by hand.
