IMA Dairy & Food USA introduces a portfolio of high-speed, continuous motion rotary machines for assembling, filling, and sealing spouted pouches in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Offering cost savings when compared to buying premade pouches, the Ermetika Series has four models whose output capacities range from 120 to 480 pouches per minute — faster than intermittent motion modules.
Part of the Fillshape family of machines, the Ermetika Series is suitable for an array of food and dairy products. Strict segregation of pouch making and filling areas lends itself to high levels of hygiene, and its fill-through-the-spout system allows for complete-to-compacity pouch fills, avoiding costly materials wastage. The versatile machines can nimbly accommodate films, spouts, and caps from different suppliers, and can produce a range of pouch shapes and sizes.
Fitted with a patent-pending leak test system, the Ermetika line is capable of validating the resistance of the pouch seal — a quality control device that can enhance reputations by significantly mitigating the risk of defects being shipped and shelved. The exacting system has been shown to decrease greenlighted leak defects to one 1 in 30,000 — a 300% improvement over conventional leak detection technologies.
