Ossid offers a wide range of tray overwrapping and lidding, vacuum skin packaging, horizontal form fill sealing, weigh price labeling, and case scale machinery for customers in the alternative meats industry. The systems are designed for maximum productivity, while maintaining product quality and clean wash down environments.
Tray Seal and Tray Overwrap
Tray seal and overwrap systems are used for trays of alternative meat burgers, meatballs, and more. The Ossid 500Si is a tuck and fold style tray overwrapping machine. Keeping trays tightly wrapped, this machine works at high speeds up to 120 packages per minute. The 500Si can be paired with the Ossid 1500 Series weigh price labeler (WPL) for added line efficiencies.
Reepack’s line of semi-automatic and fully automatic tray sealers are capable of ambient tray lid, vacuum skin packaging (VSP) tray and VSP on board packaging. The smaller semi-automatic ReeTray 30 is an ideal packaging machine with robust sealing capabilities with small production output, making it an ideal first step into tray packaging for start-up processors, and also in a lab testing environment for processors looking to test market products prior to new product launch.
Larger, fully automatic tray sealing solutions are available for higher production output, while maintaining the ease of operation and maintenance of the machine.
Reepack ReeForm Thermoformer Series
Thermoformers are also used in the alternative meats industry. These machines are ideal for patties in fresh refrigerated shelves or frozen items. The ReeForm Series of thermoformers range from entry level to high performance systems. These machines are flexible to meet diverse industry demands and can accommodate flexible and rigid film with different thickness for varying film widths. Features on the ReeForm include a sanitary wash down environment stainless steel construction, an open frame for access to the machine, and maximum output.
Designed to meet the needs of start-up businesses, large processors that require add-ons, and businesses looking to convert lines, the packaging solutions from Ossid are versatile, durable, and dependable.
