IMA FLX will be presenting several key solutions at IBA 2023, the upcoming trade fair in the bakery sector, aimed at future-oriented bakery manufacturers
From October 22nd to 26th the IMA Group is gathering in Munich in occasion of IBA 2023: the world’s leading trade fair for the bakery industry.
At stand B1.310, IMA will focus on the food sector through one of its best-established clusters known as IMA Flexible Packaging hub, whose expertise in flexible packaging solutions covers the current and future needs of the bakery sector.
A wide range of technologies on show will be available for our visitors:
Vegatronic 2600 with Vision 3000
At IBA 2023, our Vision 3000 vision system using laser technology will be running in line with an intermittent vertical form-fill-seal machine, the Vegatronic 2600, as a fully integrated bread roll processing line.
Through a combination of laser and line scan cameras, Vision 3000 guarantees accurate checking and counting operations to verify product height, length, width and surface. Even at high speeds, Vision 3000 is so flexible it handles fresh, par-baked, frozen and raw dough products, whether baguettes, pretzels, rolls, bagels, doughnuts or croissants.
Vision 3000 will be feeding the Vegatronic 2600 with a film buffer, an exclusive feature to avoid downtime. Vegatronic 2600 can operate with 30°, 45° or 60° inclination, processing bags up to 580mm in width and 1200mm maximum film width. Small or large bags can be used to pack fresh or frozen rolls, croissants, bagels, muffins and more. Vegatronic 2600 incorporates solutions to increase line efficiency and facilitate changeover procedures, such as the film buffering function allowing the film roll to be changed without stopping the machine.
Also at IBA 2023, Delta 3000 is one of the market’s best-known flow wrapping machines offering M.A.P, hermetic sealing and hygienic design.
We will demonstrate Delta 3000’s long-dwell sealing capabilities which cover several new materials and ensure hermetic seals for products processed in a modified atmosphere. This responds to the growing trend towards sustainable packaging materials, typically hard to handle, containing high proportions of paper or recyclable mono-material, plastic based on PE or PP.
PANDA BS RS with FLOWPOCKET
Synchronising the stages of a production line improves efficiency, especially with FLOWPOCKET by IMA Record, a solution which automatically load buns onto the BS RS (Bottom Seal / Rotating Seal) version of the PANDA flow wrapping machine.
Perfect for regular, small and medium-sized products, PANDA BS RS reaches an output of up to 300 ppm. A perfect alternative to pick and place systems, FLOWPOCKET is easy to set up, quick to implement changeover and synchronised to perfection.
No line would be turnkey without the necessary technologies to complete the packaging process. The IMA END OF LINE hub and its experts are available to show the technologies developed to preserve the contents and containers while providing packaging solutions of all types: from display boxes to wrap around cases, trays with internal or external lids, RSC cases.
