The three functions – forming, filling and sealing – are all integrated into this compact machine which saves space on your factory floor. All critical functions are accessible from floor level.
Easy volume change
The entire Tetra Recart packaging portfolio can be produced on the Tetra Pak R2 machine. A trained operator can switch between volumes in approximately 30 minutes.To change between different formats, 5 hours are needed. This means you can produce a series of products, or a multi-size product family, with just one machine.
Several factors make this filling machine easy to operate: the Tetra Pak Operator Panel with its intuitive touch-screen interface; large windows enabling operators to watch production directly; and ground-level access to essential working parts.
Encased working parts
All the moving parts are positioned on the inside of the machine, which is enclosed in a metal casing and sealed with tight-fitting doors. The result is a plant environment with relatively low noise levels (75 dB) compared with industry norms.
This machine is fed with carton blanks from cardboard boxes with a minimum of manual handling. The blanks are flat-packed to save space. You can fit 32 000 empty Tetra Recart cartons on a 1150 x 800 mm. pallet, compared with 3120 cans, leading to savings in distribution and storage costs.
The aluminium foil is heated under tight control, melting the plastic in the packaging material. The package is then sealed by pressure. The machine monitors the temperature and pressure, and stops automatically if incorrect parameters are detected.
PLMS data is collected based on the FM production code, and can be extracted either during or after production. The full line information can be shared with operators and engineers to ensure optimum performance and production efficiency.
