At the Interpack exhibition in Düsseldorf – Germany (24 to 30 April 2008), visitors were greeted by with many CFS innovations that promise lifecycle performance. The CFS GigaSlicer is set to become a benchmark in capacity, efficiency, product quality and hygiene. The CFS TiroLabelNT , introduced on the CFS PowerPakNT thermoformer, is the first cross web labeller in the world that works entirely without machine interruptions for reloading. And the new Zero Reject Sealing System option for the CFS SmartPacker SX 400 vertical flowpacker delivers an airtight seal for fresh salad and grated cheese packaging even if moisture or product are present in the seal area. These innovations increase operational efficiency – and therefore lower costs.
Cost reduction per pack with the CFS GigaSlicer
With its slicing area of 550 x 210 mm, the CFS GigaSlicer is the largest in its class. It typically slices one lane more than conventional machines, for example, five 110 mm diameter sausages instead of just four. When used together with the CFS PowerPakNT, currently the only thermoformer that can complement the CFS GigaSlicer’s performance, sliced portions are packed at a higher capacity than comparable combinations on the market today. This really brings the cost per package down.
CFS TiroLabelNT: Label changing without downtime
Downtime for changing label reels or torn backing material is now a thing of the past. The completely new CFS TiroLabelNT labelling concept offers non-stop performance. It is the first cross web labeller on the market that allows label reels to be changed while the machine is running. The fundamental advantage is the separation of label dispenser and applicator unit into two separate modules.
CFS Zero Reject Sealing System saves material & man hours
Increasing the integrity of the bag seal for fresh salad and grated cheese packaging can significantly reduce production costs. The new Zero Reject Sealing System, which uses an extremely reliable ultrasonsonic welding technique, delivers an airtight seal even if moisture or product are present in the seal area. The system is an option on the CFS SmartPacker SX 400 flowpacker. For suppliers of packaged fresh salad, where the loose nature of the product can drive the packaging reject rate as high as 8 %, the potential cost savings are substantial in terms of fewer man hours needed to manually empty failed bags and less film waste. Grated cheese and mozzarella manufacturers can make considerable material savings, because the CFS Zero Rejects Sealing System also simplifies making an airtight seal with bags from thinner films.
A new quality of performance: the CFS PowerPakNT for medical packaging
With the CFS PowerPakNT thermoformer, CFS now has an innovative solution for the food and medical industries. At Interpack, CFS Tiromat showed the innovative sealing system and other integrated safety features to guarantee product quality and seal integrity during the packaging process. The CFS PowerPakNT sets new standards in terms of performance, process reliability, investment protection, cost-efficiency and flexibility.
Sweet solutions for great confectionery packs
In hall 4 CFS Aquarius displayed the new generation SmartPacker TwinTube flowpacker, capable of running at highest performance with more flexibility, as well as the TwistWrapper for high-speed double twist wrapping of ball lollipops.
