Ulma Packaging, a designer and builder of packaging machinery, has introduced a new version of its Atlanta range of horizontal flow wrapping machines to the UK. 

Designed to produce a three seal pillow pack, the Atlanta Hi-tech includes the ‘no product, no bag’ feature, misplaced product detection and access to bespoke software, which allows integration with remote line monitoring and data capture.

The machine can be installed as part of an automatic packing line or as a standalone manual feeding solution.

All three motors can be synchronised through an electronic control panel and screen, thanks to the integration of a multi-axis servo motor solution. The 10-inch colour touch screen has built-in fault finding diagnostics and an icon menu.

Package length, size and cutting speed are all controlled from the touch screen, which has a built-in memory allowing the parameter storage of up to 50 products. Capable of up to 400 packs per minute, the model can handle products up to 500 mm in length, and there are many optional extras.

Versatile and flexible

Dave Berriman, Ulma’s UK technical manager, said: “The latest Atlanta Hi-tech is fully electronic controlled and this provides the machine with a high versatility and flexibility in product changes along with perfect dynamics in the machine’s sealing operation. Built to exceptional high standards this latest addition to the Ulma Packaging line-up is ideal for a variety of applications and is especially suited where a quick changeover between different products is required.”
