X-line traysealers

The X-line traysealers - high-performance, reliable, flexible, future-proof.

 

TX traysealer

The TX traysealer covers a wide spectrum of food packaging applications, ranging from fruit and vegetables through to meat, sausage, fish, poultry, and dairy products and right up to ready meals of all types.

Thanks to its mechanical construction, which is both robust and space-saving, and its innovative machine control featuring Flow Manager and Multi Sensor Control, the TX is capable of packing with maximum flexibility and consistent reliability - even at very high output in non-stop mode. The TX's groundbreaking die concept, X-tools, is a further guarantee of unrivalled versatility and pack quality.

In order to simplify the process when setting up new products, trays, and films, the TX can be connected online with MULTIVAC Pack Pilot, which automatically sets the machine parameters. This makes it possible to achieve a very quick production start - even with new pack or product applications. The TX  also offers the opportunity of online access to the MULTIVAC Smart Services, allowing machine efficiency to be increased still further.

Quick product change

The frequent changes of product, film, and die, which are typical for traysealers, can be performed on the TX with the minimum of interruption to production. An operator requires less than five minutes to change an X-tool die. RFID technology can also be used to assist the rapid availability of the TX during die changes.

Quick die change

Each X-tool contains all the functions necessary for the particular packaging procedure. A die for MAP packs, for example, includes all the components required for modified atmosphere, while a MultiFresh™ die on the other hand includes all the components for producing vacuum skin packs. The operator can therefore change quickly and conveniently between different tray sizes and applications.

Quick film change

The film transport system of the TX is designed for a particularly quick and easy film change. This aids rapid product change and optimises machine availability.

Modular conversion

Thanks to its modular design, the TX can be adapted flexibly to new applications and production processes. We can offer a comprehensive range of denesters, direct web printers, labellers, and systems for product infeed and pack discharge, either as optional equipment or retrofits.

Pack Pilot

In order to simplify the process when setting up new products, trays, and films, the TX can be equipped with access to the cloud-based MULTIVAC Pack Pilot. With the input of just a few key facts about the product and pack, the TX automatically sets the machine parameters on the basis of expert knowledge. This makes a major contribution to good pack results from the very start of production.

High level of reliability

One of the main features of the TX is its very high level of reliability, even in non-stop mode at maximum output and with frequent product and die changes. An even product flow and a packaging procedure, which is very gentle on the packs and product, form the basis for consistently good production results and pack reliability.

Optimum product flow and reliable processes

The innovative Flow Manager controls the powerful servo drives on the TX. It ensures time sequences for the entire packaging procedure, from the infeed to the discharge of the packs, are synchronised with each other perfectly. This creates a packaging procedure, which is gentle on the product and gives a very even product flow. If the product flow deviates from the target value, it is automatically adjusted by the Flow Manager. At the same time the Multi Sensor Control optimises the process values for the die, and this also contributes to the very high level of reliability and maximum pack quality.

Widest range of trays and film can be run very reliably

The transport systems for the trays and film, together with the X-tools, enable a wide spectrum of materials to be run with precision and reliability. Just some of the tray materials, which can be securely sealed on the TX, are mono and composite plastics, aluminium, foamed materials, as well as those made from renewable raw materials such as MULTIVAC PaperBoard or PLA. It is also possible to run a wide range of flexible upper webs, even for example very thin films. A particularly precise web advance also ensures film is utilised to the maximum.

Reliable operation

The Multitouch machine control with its HMI 3 user interface makes a major contribution to the machine's simple and reliable operation, and it can be set individually to the particular user. Features such as animations and a dashboard with quick access and overview pages give targeted assistance to the operator. This includes different access rights and operating languages. User login is contactless by means of RFID chip cards. With its 18.5 inch screen diagonal, the control terminal delivers all the information at one glance.

Maximum output and availability

The TX offers unique output and availability. This is the result of the optimum interaction between an innovative machine control, a comprehensive sensor system and very reliable components.

Maximum output thanks to reliable processes

The unique combination of Flow Manager and Multi Sensor Control ensures maximum output and the highest possible level of operating stability are achieved at every cycle. In the case of air packs, sealed without modified atmosphere, the TX can achieve an output of up to 25 cycles per minute. When packing with modified atmosphere, the TX is equally impressive with its outstanding performance of up to 18 cycles per minute. In the case of MultiFresh™ vacuum skin packs, the sophisticated design of the machine produces an output of 10 cycles per minute, while providing exceptional visual appearance for the pack and product.

Fast cleaning and servicing

The TX is designed for the hygiene requirements of the food industry. Hygienic design and high-quality materials ensure fast and reliable cleaning. The modules inside the machine are also designed for optimum hygiene, such as the tray transport system, the conveyors that are removable without tools, as well as all the format-related parts. Thanks to the large doors and safety guards, the entire tray packaging process is visible and easily accessible for cleaning and service work.

Future-proof

It is not only its modular design which makes the TX perfect for the challenges of tomorrow. The innovative machine control, a comprehensive sensor system, and precise servo technology, as well as the unique X-tool dies and optional connection to the MULTIVAC Cloud - all of these ensure the TX is ideally prepared for the demands of the future.

MULTIVAC Smart Services

MULTIVAC's Smart Services are also available for the TX, and these can contribute significantly to increased machine efficiency and availability. Smart Services include predictive maintenance and analysis of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), as well as a special function, the Machine Event Analyzer.

 

OEE analysis is able to depict the output, availability, and production quality on a progressive time basis. This overview creates transparency and highlights possible areas for optimising machine performance.

 

Any faults or messages that arise are evaluated by the Machine Event Analyzer, which identifies the causes of machine stoppages. This information enables the most frequent causes of downtime to be eliminated in a targeted way, allowing the production flow to be improved significantly.

 

MULTIVAC customers can decide at any time on the various optional service packages, including predictive maintenance and remote assistance.

MULTIVAC Pack Pilot

In order to simplify the process when setting up new products, trays, and films, the TX can be equipped with access to the cloud-based MULTIVAC Pack Pilot. With the input of just a few key facts about the product and pack, the TX automatically sets the machine parameters on the basis of expert knowledge. This makes a major contribution to good pack results from the very start of production.

 

 

TX technology

Multi Sensor Control

The TX is equipped with a comprehensive sensor system. Multi Sensor Control captures the relevant process values from the die in real time, and it optimises these to the limits of what is physically possible. Thanks to this, the TX always runs at virtually the optimum operating point. This contributes to its very high output and reliability, as well as maximum pack quality.

 

X-tools

X-tools are a new die generation, which was developed for our TX traysealer series. Thanks to the integrated sensors, the die top section is automatically detected during a die change, and the data set stored in the die is transferred to the machine control. This makes the die change particularly quick and reliable, even when dies are being changed between different machines. As an optional extra, other die parts and the grippers can be identified by means of RFID technology. The X-tools are simple to clean and maintain thanks to a reduced number of components and easy access to vacuum and gas lines. Due to their extremely high and evenly distributed sealing force, they make a major contribution to consistently high pack quality.

 

Flow Manager: Optimum product flow and reliable processes

The innovative Flow Manager controls the powerful servo drives on the TX. It ensures time sequences for the entire packaging procedure, from the infeed to the discharge of the packs, are synchronised with each other perfectly. This creates a packaging procedure which is gentle on the product and gives a very even product flow.
