ULMA return to PPMA show with extensive machinery range

ULMA Packaging UK is attending the 2021 PPMA Show on stand C100, demonstrating its innovative FM300C flow wrapper, TFS 200 thermoformer, TSA 680 tray sealing machine and popular VTI 640 Vertical Form Fill and Seal (VFFS) model.


Designed to package whole trussed and untrussed birds, the FM300C horizontal form fill seal flow wrapper processes poultry at rates up to 60p/pm (packs per minute). Its extra 25mm height capacity and 200mm larger jaw opening lets it accommodate larger birds.


Additionally, the FM300C is compatible with ULMA’s modified atmosphere packaging solution for minced meat, which can provide plastic reductions of up to 60% without product discolouration, leakage or compromised shelf life.


Also used for poultry, the VTI640 vertical wrapper uses ULMA’s Tight-BagTM air extraction method, removing air without perforating the pack via a patented jaw arrangement. This reduces plastic required per pack without compromising visual appeal or increasing contamination risks, while achieving speeds up to 35p/pm.

Attendees can also view ULMA’s versatile TFS 200 MSV, which can be used for MAP, universal skin and vacuum packing for multiple demanding sectors. Finally, ULMA’s TSA 680 is one of the fastest traysealers available, able to efficiently package meat and vegetable produce at over 20 cycles per minute. Suitable for single and double packaging lines, its high sealing force guarantees safe hermetic sealing.


Chris Pickles, Managing Director at ULMA Packaging UK, comments: “We will continue to emphasise the need for sustainable packaging solutions on our return to the PPMA Show, as demonstrated with our Tight-BagTM and minced meat MAP innovations. These developments demonstrate that processors and manufacturers can achieve more efficient operations while reducing material use, and we will be demonstrating this on our stand.”
