VR4 Elektra-S

FLOWPACK

VR4 Elektra “S” is a special version of the model from which it derives, specifically designed to pack products without tray or support, arranged in one or two rows.

In particular, it is equipped with a special conveyor, fitted with a system of flexible mats that allow it to control and protect the product from the moment it is placed until it reaches the sealing area.

From here, a system of soft brushes picks up the product and keeps it stable while it is being packaged.

Thanks to these features VR 4 Elektra S makes it possible to create trayless packs, guaranteeing a mono-material solution (only the packaging film) and significant savings in packaging material and costs.

It works well with a variety of packaging materials, including recyclables, biodegradable, compostable and paper films that the market demands with a view to environmental sustainability.

For these reasons, the VR 4 Elektra S stands as an ideal solution to the need to reduce the environmental impact of packaging while ensuring product preservation and presentation.

features

  • Infeed conveyor with mats and flaps, Feed conveyor with mats and flaps, special conveyor to protect and place the product stably despite theabsenceofsupport.
  • Accompanying brushes system , to accompany the product and ensure its stability during the packaging phase.
  • Extra long infeed conveyor, providing additional space for operators to correctly position the product on the machine conveyor.
  • Removableproductpusherfor quick changeovers.
  • Storable bag lengthandpusher head-cutterphasefor quick and easy format changeovers.
  • Stop in phase, avoids overheating of the film in case of prolonged stop, preserving the seals.
  • Immediate jaw retraction in case of jamming, facilitates product evacuation and preserves the head-cutter  mechanics.
  • Jaw release with push button, for precise and efficient resetting in the event of entrapment.
  • Universal forming tunnel, to adapt to any format, allowing the width and height of the bag to be adjusted on demand.
  • Self-centring reel holder, regardless of the reel width used, the film is always centred without the need for any adjustment.
  • Progressive reel brake, as the film reel is consumed, the brake is automatically changed so that the operator does not have to worry about it.
  • Control panel with colour touch screen, allowing quick format changeover and intuitive management of all the machine parameterisation options.
  • Three pairs sealing wheelsguarantee a better result in longitudinal bag sealing.
  • Instantaneous speed reducer, to facilitate machine operation in situations that require lower packaging speed and optimise times.
  • Preventive maintenance warnings, to warn of the appropriate moment for an overhaul.

options

VR4 Elektra S can be customised with multiple accessories to increase efficiency based on customer needs and/or product requirements.

Some of the accessories are:

  • Stop no Film , stops the machine automatically if the film reel runs out.
  • Photo-eye system for registered film, allowing the use of films printed with marks to centre the design on the product.
  • Second reel holder, to have a reel of the same size or of another format readily available, speeding up replacement.
  • Printers/Markers, to print information such as batch number, production/expiration date or barcodes and images directly onto the film in real time.
  • Labellers, to apply and print labels on the finished pack or directly on the film before forming.
  • Accumulation rotary table, placed at the exit of the flow-wrapper, receives the already packaged products to facilitate successive packaging operations.
  • Inverse version, with product loading from left to right to adapt to the available space or to integrated production lines.
  • Stop no product, temporarily stops the machine when product has not been loaded on the in-feed conveyor
