For the food industry Microline offers complete lines including conveyor belts, collation and shrink-wrapping machines (secondary packaging) and palletisers for packaging coffee, tea, sugar, rice, pasta, milk, yogurt, ice-cream, etc.
Microline achieves all this by following three fundamental principles: quality, efficiency and innovation.
Reliable, customised machines capable of packing and wrapping every type of product with great ease and in complete safety.
Among the products making up the vast range of Microline packaging systems, shrink-wrap bundlers and case packers occupy a prominent place; machines suitable for secondary packaging of food products such as coffee, tea, rice, pasta, milk, yogurt etc. in different types of packages such as bags, boxes, brick packs, jars, tins, etc.
These completely automatic machines are designed to form and fill "American-style" slotted cases, i.e. erected and glued cases, also in a display version.
These machines are divided into two different types:
Machines designed for secondary packaging of collated products.
The wrapping material is polyethylene plastic film.
The models offered, according to the packaging requirements of each individual product, basically differ in terms of the type of infeed: it in this phase that the bundle is prepared.
The shrink-wrapped bundle remains partially open at the sides, while a sealed pack can be obtained by using extra film.
The first order placed by the Neapolitan company was for a side-loading case packer that was fitted to an interfolded towel and toilet paper line. The second was for a dedicated high-performance line for hospital paper rolls production, while the third order was fitted downstream of a state-of-the-art interfolded towel and toilet paper line.
Line layout design should be aimed at efficient product conveyance and, at the same time, optimum production flow, thus saving as much space as possible. The Microline engineering department is ready to help the customer design new layouts or alter existing ones
One of the strong points of a Microline machine is its versatility. Indeed, a common feature of the entire range of solutions is that of being able to work, depending on the configuration, with different materials, products and sizes, thus satisfying constantly-changing production requirements.
