Mespack’s H-540-FE6 machine: the fastest on the market for the packaging of baby food in small format stand-up pouches.
Barcelona, 8 october 2018.- If there is one market which shows what the future will be like, it is the North American market, as Mespack knows only too well. That is why the international flexible packaging machine manufacturer will not miss one minute of the must-go-to event of the industry between 14th-17th October: Pack Expo 2018. The Company’s Marketing Director, Santi Alberich, explains: “As far as packaging is concerned, American manufacturers start trends which spread to Europe and the rest of the world. It is happening, for example, with flexible stand-up pouches, which we now see on the supermarket shelves (water, baby food, detergent). So, as every year, we will be at Pack Expo. And this year we will be there with the fastest machine of its type in the baby food industry, H-540-FE6.”
And H-540-FE6 really is a high capacity machine, able to manufacture 300-360 small format (120-200 ml) pouches with top anti-choke spout and rounded edges a minute. “This makes it the fastest machine available today on the market for this type of packaging,” stresses Alberich, who recalls that Mespack took the machine to Interpack 2017 with great success, since “it’s not easy to find something with that level of performance.”
Designed to meet the hygiene and safety needs of the baby food industry – one of the markets that the company is making a strong play for in America – the machine also has a servomotor system for package transport which ensures accurate form and fill whilst reducing wastage of food and film.
Visitors to Mespack’s stand at Pack Expo (2147 in Chicago’s McCormick Place) will also be able to see at first hand another high capacity machine in operation, this time a machine for pre-formed stand-up pouches and large format sachets: H-570-SCD.
“Intended for packaging cereals, detergent tablets and grated cheese among other products, this machine is the one that allows production in the largest format: up to two 3-litre sachets per cycle,” stresses Alberich. H-570-SCD is also a very versatile machine, with a range of accessories and applications that can be installed on request.
Aim: to grow with Duravant
Mespack is well-established in North America and is very strong in food (cheese and baby food) and homecare (detergent). In South America it also occupies a dominant position in packaging for sauces, such as tomato sauce, a product which is difficult to measure out. So the Company will be using its presence at Pack Expo to reinforce its efforts in these four areas, especially in the United States, and to promote the Duravant Group, “with all the companies in the Group showing on the same stand,” concludes Alberich.
