Volpak will present its horizontal forming machines at Pack Expo


Packaging equipment solutions company Volpak has revealed plans to show up at Pack-Expo 2022 in Chicago, USA with its latest range of machines, reports Neil Barston.

With more than 40 years in the business, the flexible systems manufacturer said it is strengthening its commitment to North and South America, with its presence at the show being a strong marker of its intentions in the region.

It will present its new SI 280, a Horizontal Form Fill Seal machine designed for the flexible packaging of consumer goods.

Volpak is part of Coesia, a group of innovation-based packaging and industrial solutions companies operating globally and will exhibit its innovations at the Coesia stand S-2501.

At Pack Expo International in Chicago, Coesia will present machines and products designed to increase the reliability and efficiency of production processes in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical and personal care sectors, as well as solutions cross-industry automation.

With its own bagging solutions, Volpak machines lead the industry in performance and flexibility, meeting the diverse needs of large and small brands in the consumer goods market.
Sustainability in flexible packaging

Volpak’s strong commitment to environmental sustainability goes back a long way. With the creation of the PouchLab in 2018, the Spanish company sent a strong and tangible signal by creating a place to test the resistance and durability of new sustainable packaging materials, such as mono-materials, as well as their machinability and market demand.

The company added that it has continued its commitment to sustainability at Pack Expo 2022 and is exhibiting the SI 280 machine, capable of processing 100% recyclable materials – both packaging materials and pouch hinges. zippered.

Additionally, the SI 280 features assisted automated format change – a feature now available for the entire SI series via the HMI. Format change is an important phase in production, which is why Volpak has automated certain stages, particularly in the envelope forming area, to optimize and speed up operations, allowing even technicians without specific training to be able to work on machinery. The automation and digitization of the entire SI series allow Volpak machines to be increasingly interconnected with production processes

Another key feature of the SI 280 is the presence of OptiMate, Coesia’s new intelligent HMI systems, developed to facilitate format changeover and machine maintenance, thanks to the intuitive interface and guided procedures.

The version shown in Chicago will be configured in Premium mode and will have additional advanced features over the standard version, including the ability to perform production analysis through detailed reports and advanced diagnostics for predictive maintenance.
