Three in one tray packaging will play a great role in the food industry

so far, the usual solution is to use oversized trays with additional top space. But the problem is that in the eyes of consumers, these pallets appear not to be full. In response, Multivac developed a tray style, with a circular arch at the center of the bottom. The round arch is sunken in the process of product filling, which reduces the filling height. Just before sealing, the round arch protrudes upward and pushes the product up, making the package look like it is filled

six or seven years ago, Tesco, a supermarket chain, cut and packaged raw meat The tensile strength testing machine adopts a double space structure with independent stretching and tightening, which is moved from the back of the store to the centralized packaging plant, thus leading the trend of pre formed tray packaging raw and fresh meat. Since then, all shredded meat products in supermarkets have been packed with thermoformed pallets, because for this cost sensitive product, the form of thermoformed pallets is very beneficial to saving packaging costs

Derek Patterson, general manager of Ulma packaging, a supplier of thermoforming filling sealing tray equipment, said, "one of the changes we have seen in the market this year is that everyone is committed to reducing costs in both products and product packaging. Therefore, we find that many food manufacturers have turned their attention to thermoforming trays." As a supplier of a complete set of hot forming filling sealing tray equipment, its products are widely used in sealed packaging of fresh food (including beef, chicken, fish, salad, fried vegetables, cheese, etc.), and have achieved good benefits

the following factors are the main reasons why fresh food manufacturers prefer this packaging form. In terms of meat, it has become increasingly unacceptable to put the cut fresh poultry or red meat into unsealed and water permeable trays. On the one hand, retailers don't want products to bleed in the freezer or the cashier. On the other hand, customers don't want shopping bags and refrigerators to be stained with blood. Another factor is the shelf life. Because the sealed modified atmosphere packaging can extend the shelf life by a few days, it gives retailers plenty of time to straighten out the problematic links in their sales chain. In addition, there are problems of appearance, feel and product differentiation. As more and more customers buy clean and sealed packaged food, especially some foreign enterprises have begun to carry out special technical research and development for the Chinese market. No doubt, the fully wrapped EPS tray is beginning to appear a little outdated

the application of full thermoforming filling sealing tray technology is still different in different product fields. Thermoforming filling sealing technology is not only popular in the field of bacon and cooked meat, but also has made special progress in pre-processing fruits, salads and fried vegetables

the latest innovation in this field comes from Multivac, whose ingenious and original solution is mainly used to solve the problems in the modified atmosphere packaging of salad and vegetable mixed slices. This kind of product is soft and irregular, which makes it easy to scatter on the edge after being put into the thermoforming container. John hechen, the sales manager of Multivac, pointed out, "you can't seal the scattered products, which will result in leakage and unqualified packaging."

to date, the usual solution has been to use oversized pallets with additional headroom. But the problem is that in the eyes of consumers, these pallets appear not to be full. In response, Multivac developed a tray style, with a circular arch at the center of the bottom. The round arch is sunken in the process of product filling, which reduces the filling height. Just before sealing, the round arch protrudes upward and pushes the product up, making the package look like it is filled. This very simple graphene can be used in many advanced materials and devices, and the effect of the solution is quite good. John hechen said, "our customers now have an excellent and fast production line for polycarbonate, which is a class 1 amorphous engineering plastic line with excellent comprehensive performance of 10 points. It is automatically filled, inflated, capped and weighed, and is completed at the lowest packaging cost."

under the pressure of increasing market sales requirements and reducing costs, the forming filling sealing tray equipment will be more accepted by manufacturers and consumers, and the future development space of this equipment will be very broad
