Benefits and Capabilities of Our Food Packaging Machinery
Our food packaging machines are used to seal and protect food products so that they are ready storage, handling, distribution, and marketing purposes. Compared to manual food packaging operations, machine-assisted food packaging operations allow for better quality control, greater productivity, safer working conditions, broader production flexibility, and easier scalability. However, the machine must be selected, installed, and maintained properly to ensure it operates as expected.
The type of food packaging machine employed depends on the requirements and restrictions of the food packaging operation. Below we provide an overview of the types of machines we have available, including what they are, key benefits, and typical applications.
Tray/cup sealers—also referred to as tray lidding machines, heat sealers, and top sealers—are used to apply and adhere plastic film—such as modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) film—to the openings of product-filled trays and cups. The airtight seal formed helps protect fresh, frozen, and ready-made food against contamination, degradation, and premature spoilage. Compared to manual sealing operations, machine-assisted sealing operations accommodate a greater number of trays/cups in a shorter time period, which allows for faster production speeds and higher productivity.

Fillers and depositors are machines designed to dose and deposit a specific amount of product into packaging containers. They can accommodate low- to high-viscosity compounds and operate as standalone or integrated units, depending on their design and configuration. Various accessories can also be incorporated to suit different products, such as product mixers and agitators, hoppers, interchangeable nozzles, automatic loading systems, and level detectors. In addition to food and beverage production operations, other typical applications for these machines include bakery, cosmetic manufacturing, household, and industrial processes.
Vacuum chambers are suitable for packaging a variety of food products, such as meat, dairy, nuts, produce, and more. During packaging operations, they are used to remove air from the food packaging before it is sealed, which reduces the chance of product contamination, protects the food product from damage and degradation, and improves the product’s shelf life.
Sleeve systems are used to automate sleeving operations, which are both labor-intensive and time-consuming. These machines allow industry professionals to process a greater number of pre-packaged units in a shorter time period without sacrificing accuracy or consistency. As a result, they can lead to higher productivity and lower waste generation.
These machines offer all of the same benefits as their new counterparts, but at a more gentle price. Browse our currently available used machines and save on cost without compromising your machinery’s quality.
