GEA V-Packer LM-HP

High-speed continuous motion packaging machine designed for paper-based films in the pasta sector.

The demand to significantly reduce plastic waste in order to achieve a higher degree of eco-sustainability and to draw greater attention to the environmental protection is a need that involves the packaging sector in the foreground.

Especially in the Pasta sector, many producers are driving their attention to the use of paper-based film.

This leads GEA to the development of a new upgraded version of its top range Vertical Packaging Machine: the project involves the redesigning of the sealing group and the implementation of those technical details that are useful to correctly handle paper-based films in the pasta sector.

The resulting V-Packer LM-HP guarantees a uniform and continuous unwinding of the film, maintaining a constant tensioning and an automatically centered position.

The new sealing group permits to reach an increasing degree of pressure, which is commonly requested by paper-based film.

The improved HMI panel ensures complete control of the machine, easing the identification of anomalies and troubleshooting.  

The combination between pressure, heat and a correct sealing time allows the new GEA V-Packer LM-HP to deal efficiently with paper-based film, maintaining performance and reliability, ensuring high quality of the packages and guaranteeing compliance with the most stringent rules for operator’ safety.



Sustainable Pasta Packaging: trends and technological solutions

The need for new systems and technologies that allow to reduce environmental footprint is a trend that is playing an important role in decision making, both for producers and consumers. Using an environment friendly packaging can reduce single-use plastic waste and it is considered a fundamental step for the food industry.
