Main advantages of the new generation series of HSV 210 SLIM vertical packaging machines
Emphasis on our own R&D and innovative high-tech solutions for the individual needs snack product manufacturers, combined with their feedback, have enabled VELTEKO engineers to create the high quality SLIM series of vertical packaging machines. SLIM machines meet their exacting requirements for high performance and creation of high quality bags.
We recently spoke with Frantisek Smid, Owner and Head of VELTEKO‘s Technical Department, about the competitive advantages of the SLIM series of vertical packaging machines.
What are the main advantages of the new generation series of SLIM vertical packaging machines?
Frantisek Smid: “Our goal was to ensure it had a higher level of technical operation for creating high-quality pillow bags than existing machines on the market. The quality of the bag largely depends on the quality of the seals. Achieving good seals is dependent on the conditions under which the seal is created. In layman's terms: to achieve a quality seal on the packaging film you need the optimal temperature, with the optimal pressure, for the optimal time. The SLIM machine has many additional features and advantages, but fulfillment of this requirement was the most important. I believe we have reached this goal.”
Where is the added value for customers and what are the other advantages of the machine?
Frantisek Smid: “SLIM machines offer all conditions necessary to produce high quality seals at high speed. Its additional advantages are similar to other VELTEKO machines. These include automatic foil centering on the forming collar, automatic adjustment of the shaft position when unwinding foil in accordance with its width, using VT + groups to reduce demands on the operator when resizing bags, machine control via an industrial computer (and all advantages that come with it), VPN router & IP Camera for remote servicing, TWIN design and many more.”
Who are SLIM vertical packaging machines designed for?
Frantisek Smid: “SLIM machines were originally intended for packaging „snack“ products in pillow bags. For these products, packaging films with inferior characteristics for producing high-quality seals are frequently used. Thanks to the one-purpose operation of SLIM machines (intended only for the production of pillow bags), they are offered at lower prices than our universal VELTEKO packaging machines. Therefore, we say that SLIM machines are intended for all customers who package their products in pillow bags, need good-looking bags, require tight seals and demand high speed.”
