With the innovative new developments RM-170 and RM-270, Hastamat will once again present the continuous vertical form, fill- and seal machine at interpack 2014. “These machines' low installation height guarantees maximum product protection even at high speeds“, Marco Hinter went to the heart of the matter. These modular machines made of stainless steel and with a hygienic design are optionally available with water and dust protection and they can be cleaned very easily. Hinter: „All drive elements are clearly separated from the product side, which provides outstanding accessibility for maintenance and cleaning purposes“. The film reel has a bearing on one side that makes operation and format changes easy. „With these new developments, which features output of up to 250 bags per minute, Hastamat addresses all format ranges and bag shapes”, so Hinter. Special applications for sticks can be integrated easily and flexibly into the RM 170/270.
