Multivac, Wolfertschwenden, Germany, has released the R 081 thermoforming packaging machine, an entry-level model for automatically packing small or medium-sized batches. The compact system is ideal for use in environments with limited space and is suitable for packaging sterile medical products in small batch sizes or for test markets. With a maximum output of 15 cycles per minute, the R 081 is able to run rigid and flexible films as well as Tyvek® and paper-based packaging materials with a total web thickness of up to 400 μm. It can be equipped with evacuation and gas flushing systems and can therefore also be used for producing vacuum packs or packs with modified atmosphere and reduced residual oxygen content.
