Valmatic V 75
Valmatic V75 from Valmatic srl, San Prospero, Italy, is a new machine dedicated to single-dose packaging. Designed equally for those who produce directly and for contractors, the Valmatic solution is suitable for a range of different sectors, including the food, cosmetic, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Primarily created to serve the pharmaceutical market, the single dose is now also widespread in the food and in the home & personal care industries, areas that increasing take into account aspects such as ease of use and waste reduction. Furthermore, producers are placing growing importance on the materials used and prioritizing process costs. Valmatic has been investing heavily now for several years in the development of machines suitable for single-dose product packaging, designing and marketing solutions that anticipate the needs of customers who increasingly require flexible machines that are simple to operate and easy to maintain.
High Technology and Optional Groups
Specifically, the Valmatic unit can package products such as detergents for home care, vitamins, dietary supplements, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sauces, creams for cosmetic use and medications, to mention but a few. V75 is able to work at a speed of 30 cycles per minute, packaging liquids in vials from 0.5 to 150 ml, being able to work both materials coupled with aluminum and a wide range of barriered plastic compounds, such as PP/PET/EVOH/PE, PET/EVOH/PE and PET/PS/PE. V75 is also able to work very thick material, from 150 to 500 microns, ensuring cutting processes and the forming of packs that is always at the highest levels. The peculiarities of the machine include the adoption of a latest generation cutter that was designed with a focus on flexibility and ease of use. This group can be changed quickly and easily to allow different types of cutting.
Valmatic V75 is also characterized by an extremely evolved operator-machine interface which greatly simplifies its use. Specific softwares were developed to make the operating, maintenance and format change operations extremely simple. In addition, intuitive video tutorials will be part of the PLC equipment to help the operator to identify the functions of the machine immediately. The machine is also equipped with a level control system with automatic removal of non-compliant products. Finally V75 has relatively contained dimensions meaning it can be easily incorporated within different layouts, including those of contractors who are traditionally attentive to optimizing space as well as costs.
While it is simple to operate and maintain, the machine has characteristics that make it suitable to the packaging needs of high-end products. For example, the Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR) and Water Vapor Transmission Rate (WVTR) are very low and guarantee a product weight loss over 40 days of stability that is less than 1%: a performance that also optimizes use of the machine for pharmaceutical liquids or high quality cosmetic creams characterized by high technological properties. V75 also offers a unique feature on the market: The machine can be equipped with an on line material printing unit, called the Valmatic Thermoprinter, that works in synchronisation with the packaging operations and was designed to print the exact quantity of material necessary for the machine thereby optimizing use and reducing waste.
