According to Oystar, the new Multipack 3000 is the world’s most flexible single-cell filling and wrapping machine for pastry products – it has an output of up to 100 packages per minute and format flexibility from 50g to 1kg.
Multipack 3000 is available with a CIP dosing device and satisfies the highest hygiene standards, the company says. In addition, Multipack 3000 has precise filling accuracy and a high degree of availability. It can also be set up and reequipped in just a short amount of time because of its modular design, making it much more cost-effective
The product is fed alternatively by means of a direct connection to the upstream plant with a corresponding exchange of signals, trough with separately driven feed worms or a product hopper with or without press worm. For optimum package output, a filling level control device was installed on the dosing unit as well as infinitely variable compression force adjustment of the calibrating station.
Subsequent adjustments to the different wrapping materials and formats can be easily accommodated.
The Multipack 3000 is currently exhibited at Interpack 2011 (12-28 May, Dusseldorf, Germany), along with Oystar’s other latest innovations, including an ergonomically designed HMI panel with future-oriented technology which every Oystar machine will be equipped from now on.
The panel standardizes operation of all of the company’s machines through uniform hardware and software so that customers – no matter which Oystar machines they use for manufacturing – now only have to adhere to a single navigation concept. Handling of the panel is intuitive and is performed using a modern multi-touch system on widescreen displays (10 to 21 inches).
Machine workflows and current messages are systematically displayed and recognized at one glance. The standard HMI can also be configured with optional widgets in order to satisfy individual customer requirements.
The new Oystar panel is also compatible with all conventional fixtures. This unique control technology was developed in cooperation with all of the Oystar subsidiaries.
