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.
AL80 and FAST WRAP1250 spearhead Microline’s production range for paper roll packaging. The machines offer a continuous operating cycle, which ensures higher performance, lower energy consumption and better efficiency for optimum management of different product sizes.
The increasing popularity of non-woven products on the market led Microline to develop specific solutions to manage wrapping stages. This material is often converted in a similar way to folded products typical of the tissue sector, such as napkins and table cloths
Wrapping systems for cotton pads (for make-up removal) and cotton buds make up a significant part of the Microline product range. We have designed a side-loading case packing machine combined with a pick & place feeding system for make-up removal pads.
Microline offers a full portfolio of products for secondary packaging. These offer the same technology and attention to detail that customers have come to expect from our primary packaging machinery, with the added advantage that our case packers and palletisers can be adapted to a vast range of products.
The packaging world has been abuzz with news of Industry 4.0 for years, and particularly technologies for line automation and remote assistance. Few companies can boast Microline’s experience in this field. This Emilia-Romagna-based company has always put its customers first and foremost, seeking the best ways to ensure prompt and ongoing support.
Numerous factors have contributed to the market success of the AL80. This roll packaging unit is an ideal blend of strength and performance. Its packaging material requirements have been cut by using very fine film and a packaging process without any waste trimmings.
