Adpak unveils new packaging system for food and drink manufacturers

Smipack XP650 ALX-T

Leading supplier of shrink wrapping machines, packaging systems and films, Adpak Machinery Systems, has unveiled a new packaging system designed around the needs of the food and drink industry.

The new machine, the Smipack XP650 ALX-T, sorts and arranges collations of products before overwrapping and heat shrinking the pack. It can also automatically form and glue a cardboard tray, or insert a cardboard pad beneath the products before they are wrapped, guaranteeing the safety and security of the product in transit.

The compact system has a production capacity of up to 25 packs per minute and can handle trays from 150 x 60 mm minimum up to 500 x 320 mm maximum– making it an ideal option for wrapping tinned food, bottles or drinks containers. While it has been developed predominantly for the food and drink manufacturers, it could also be utilised in the cosmetics and chemical industry.

Commenting on the machine, Amanda Jenkins, Sales Office Manager at Adpak said:

“The Smipack XP650 ALX-T offers food and drink manufacturers increased capacity and speed by automating the formation and gluing of a secure cardboard tray as part of the product collation and packaging process.

“We’ve seen substantial demand for other Smipack overwrappers from food and drink suppliers and it has been our most popular system at PPPMA Total Show for the last two years. Consequently we’re expecting high demand from UK and Ireland food and drink manufacturers.”
