ILAPAK’s Delta 6000 R flow wrapper with MAP for packing tortillas and flat breads is now capable of speeds of up to 150ppm following several design enhancements.
ILAPAK’s engineers have enhanced the performance of the machine’s transversal sealing system by upgrading the motors and gearbox, resulting in a more robust construction that can support higher speeds.
The Delta 6000 R combines all of the features of the flagship Delta 6000, including full modularity and ultra-hygienic design, with the ability to produce MAP packs with hermetic seals for products of up to 15” in diameter. The specialised ‘inverted’ system was developed specifically for delicate bakery items such as soft tortillas and flatbreads that cannot be handled mechanically.
“The key to handling these difficult products is a combination of lugless technology and an independent motion multi-belt system. Product is received from the upstream process, synchronised and handled through the machine without any direct mechanical action. Instead, it simply uses linear belts running at different speeds to provide soft transfer and create a pitch for the flow wrapper without accumulating the product. A counter-rotating calibration belt ensures that the stacks being presented to the wrapper are of a consistent height,” explains Christian Ballabio, product manager at ILAPAK.
