At this year’s Auspack, tray sealing specialist Proseal Australia will showcase several models from its extensive range of tray sealing machines that demonstrate how the company is able to supply a solution to meet individual customer needs, from start-up businesses and test facilities to multi-line installations.
The equipment on show – the semi-automatic Proseal TTe and GTR and the automatic inline GT1e – will showcase their capability to perform any style of heat seal to a pre-formed tray, and to handle the latest alternatives to plastic. This makes them suitable for a wide variety of food sectors, including fresh fruit, meat and poultry and ready meals, as well as non-food applications such as pharmaceuticals.
The Proseal GTR is a fully portable semi-automatic two station rotary table tray sealer, ideal for smaller scale enterprises and new product development. A significant benefit of the tray sealer over traditional manual machines where the operator has to wait for each tray to be sealed, is that the rotary operation of the GTR means that new trays can be loaded while the previous are being sealed. This delivers higher sealing speeds of up to 30 packs per minute.
The TTe is a small, compact, and robust tray sealer for low-volume production and production trials, capable of sealing up to 10 vacuum/gas packs per minute on a 2-impression tool. It is ideal for customers who frequently switch between pack types, and who require a tray sealing machine with a very small footprint.
The GT1e delivers fast packing speeds within a compact footprint, enabling it to integrate easily into existing lines or fit into factory areas where space is at a premium. It can seal up to 100 atmospheric and 60 vacuum gas packs per minute on a five-impression tool.
All three machines combine Proseal’s hygienic and robust construction for consistently reliable operation with ease of set up and fast changeovers. Their precision technology delivers the high-quality seals that meet the stringent standards of the retail sector.
Since its establishment in 2008 Proseal Australia has enjoyed continual success, including double-digit growth over the past five years. At Auspack the company will therefore be celebrating its move to a new factory that will double its manufacturing capacity.
As well as further enhancing its already unrivalled turnaround for the supply of tooling, the new facility’s bespoke Test Kitchen, machine demonstration and test area, and large spares holding, will ensure that Proseal can continue to deliver the highest standards of sales and service support to customers throughout Australia.
Proseal is part of the JBT Corporation family, a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food processing industry, committed to providing a service that surpasses customer expectations.
