Ossid, powered by Pro Mach, is showcasing at Pack Expo 2013, September 23-25 in Las Vegas, its 500Si stretch overwrapper. This machine is designed for red meat, pork, poultry, and produce packers that want a quality overwrapped package at a moderate price, and a machine that tightly wraps low- or high-profile case-ready packages. The 500Si features an open stainless steel frame, a variety of standard features, and a wrap rate of up to 120 trays per minute. (Ossid Booth C-2417)
The 500Si reduces consumable costs compared to standard overwrappers. Servo-driven technology reduces downtime and maintenance cost while speeding up changeover. This machine features Ossid's gripper chain stretch technology—the same technology found on the company's top of the line models 400E, 500E, 500im, and 750E. The gripper chain provides consistent film stretch, ensuring optimum package appearance in the retail case.
The machine's easy-to-operate control panel can store up to 50 tray programs, making product changeover simple and accommodating to a broad range of operator skill levels. The machine's stainless steel open frame makes it easy for operators and maintenance personnel to access machine components.
