ReeMaster 800 Series - Wings

From ground chicken and turkey to chicken and turkey wings, thighs, legs, and breasts, the poultry industry requires safe and sterile packaging equipment. The 500Si is a tuck and fold machine designed to tightly wrap case ready poultry packages at high speeds. Working at up to 120 packages per minute, this machine features quick changeover, PVC stretch film capabilities, and much more. The 500Si helps companies meet their sustainability goals by removing the requirement of air and water utilities. With a small footprint, this system is the ideal stretch wrapper for space-constrained environments.

The 500Si can be combined with an Ossid Weigh Price Labeler 1500 Series to improve productivity with accurate and flexible label placement in high-speed continuous motion. The WPL is ideal for weighing, pricing, and labeling packages from 12 inches to 20 inches in length.

One of the most sought-after ovewrappers used in the poultry industry is the Leak Resistant Ovewrapper 500E. This stretch shrink wrapper is the first packaging machine to use 36 to 41 percent less film than standard overwrap packaging machines. Used to overwrap case-ready packages, the 500E produces tightly wrapped, leak resistant, end sealed, case ready packages at speeds up to 60 packages per minute.

Features on the 500E include a welded, trimmed center seal that allows for easy printing on both the top and bottom packages, a gripper chain system that consistently stretches end seal shrink films to produce tightly wrapped packages, servo driven technology and microprocessors to reduce downtime and maintenance, stainless steel construction, and more.

ReeTray 30 - Wings

As an industry leader for tray packaging, weighing and labeling, tray sealing and thermoforming machinery for poultry products, Ossid and Reepack have partnered to create efficient packaging machinery. The ReeTray 30 is a semi-automatic tray sealer ideal for small to medium size processors. Capable of performing ambient tray sealing, MAP, and VSP applications, the ReeTray 30 features a chambered system for packaging products in lidding/VSP trays as well as flat cardboard (VSP skin on board application).

Another great system for sealing poultry is the ReeMaster 800. This inline machine is designed for high-performance output. One or two lanes can be configured to accommodate up to six trays per lane. With access to all machine components and tooling, maintenance and cleaning is easy to access. Featuring stainless steel washdown construction, this machine provides the highest level of sanitation.
