Company: Ohlson Packaging

Equipment Snapshot: Ohlson Packaging is launching two new products to help meet the automated packaging needs of its customers, unveiling a cup and tray filling solution as well as a new high-speed rotary pouch filling machine.

Both machines will be on display at the Ohlson Packaging Booth (Booth C-4018) at PACK EXPO Las Vegas from September 23 – 25, 2019.

“We are continually proud of what our team is able to develop to meet the packaging demands of our customers,” says John Ohlson Jr., president and CEO of Ohlson Packaging. “These new systems will allow us to help even more companies improve their operations.”

The Inline Cup and Tray Systems are designed for liquid, powder, scale, volumetric, hand, and specialty filling, accommodating up to 6 lanes of cups or trays ranging from 2” to 12” in width, with up to 20 cycles per minute per line.

The cup and tray system also allows for modified atmosphere packaging as well as automatic lid placing, shrink banding, date coding, labeling, automatic case packing, and a case shrink system.

The High-Speed Pouch Filling Machine is an enhanced version of the company’s existing rotary pouch filling machine, with an updated design which allows it to fill up to 60 pre-made pouches per minute (without a zipper opening).

Each of the new machines also integrates seamlessly with Ohlson Packaging’s existing products, such as multi-head and linear scales, conveyors, and other packaging automation equipment.
