Ranstadt, december 7, 2009. The growing number of single person households and the unabated trend towards togo products have resulted in one thing above all for the food industry the market for portion packs is growing at a rapid pace. Consequently, the demand for packaging machines that are able to form, fill and seal as many portion cups in one minute as possible is just as great. Thus kaptein bv, the dutch manufacturer of butter and cheese, has commissioned oystar hassia &ndash the leader in technology for portion packs &ndash with developing a ffs machine with a 60fold format design. This is already the third order that the dutch company has placed with oystar hassia. With its increased production capacity the thl 2448 forming, filling and sealing machine will manufacture 60 portion cups per work cycle in the future at a machine speed of 30 cycles per minute. This translates into 1,800 portion cups every minute or a total of 108,000 per hour. By comparison, just a few years ago the standard was still a 20fold format design with a rate of 20 cycles per minute. Apart from individual packaging the ffs machine for kaptein will also manufacture 5 and 10portion multipackaging units. It will be supplemented with an sph 2550 type cartoning machine. Thus oystar hassia will supply its customer with an entire packaging line from a single source.
