Mosca presents the cleanest strapping technology on the market at IFFA 2019
Food safety is a hot topic this year at IFFA, the world's leading trade fair for the meat industry. From 4 to 9 May 2019, Mosca will be showcasing two strapping machines that are right in line with this theme. The EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 and EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 VA are equipped with ultrasonic sealing units to hygienically strap boxes containing meat and sausage products. The EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 VA is made from stainless steel for added hygienic quality. A live demonstration in Hall 11.0, Stand D21 presents a production line segment with the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 strapping plastic boxes commonly used in the meat industry.
One of the highlights at the Mosca display at IFFA is the live demonstration of an application for the meat industry. Several plastic boxes packed with meat products are fixed to a dolly for safe, non-slip transport. The trolley is manually raised on a 150 mm high ramp where an EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 is installed. The machine double straps the dolly and stack of boxes before the dolly is lowered off the ramp. This example demonstrates how the right strapping solution can seamlessly and cost-effectively link production and downstream transport. "The sample application at the Mosca exhibition stand shows a layout that perfectly meets food industry needs," explains Mosca GmbH CEO Timo Mosca. "Our machines can be easily integrated into existing processes as a means of optimizing production."
One of the key advantages of the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 for the food industry is the side positioning of the sealing unit. This layout effectively protects the unit from falling debris during processing and reduces maintenance time. The versatile EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 can be integrated into manual or fully-automated operations. Thanks to the available interfaces, this model can easily be integrated into existing production lines.
Both the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 and EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 VA on display at IFFA feature Mosca’s own ultrasonic sealing units. This makes them ideal for processing open food products. Conventional heat-welding units use heat to seal the strap ends. This technology can produce harmful fumes that, in the worst case, come into contact with the food. This risk is completely eliminated with an ultrasonic sealing unit. "Clean and safe end products are a top priority in the food industry," explains Mosca GmbH CEO Alfred Kugler. "The machines we are presenting at IFFA clearly meet these demands."
The EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 VA wins over food manufacturers with its choice of material. This machine is made with stainless steel to ensure extremely hygienic production conditions. The EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 T-VA table model straps up to 50 packages per minute. The version equipped with a roller conveyor (EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 R-VA) straps up to 35 packages per minute. At low load, operators can easily slow down the machine from maximum to Eco-speed. Thanks to the adjustable control panel, both EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 VA versions can be operated in tight spaces. The EVOLUTION SoniXs MP-6 R-VA can also be integrated into fully-automated lines.
