Hayssen introduces customer-driven packaging machine
Hayssen Flexible Systems, a Barry-Wehmiller company, has released its VERUS intermittent vertical form-fill-seal (VFFS) machine. Featuring an advanced sanitary design, the VERUS combines proven technology and valuable customer-driven features to efficiently produce a wide range of bag formats, sizes and shapes.
The VERUS’ standard features include a robust, hygienic design that is suitable for harsh/wet environments. Constructed in stainless steel and aluminum, the bagger’s fully welded stainless-steel base frame includes sanitary feet with no exposed threads. A sloping top on the electrical cabinet prevents water pooling, and a top tray protects the film path from overhead contamination. Also standard on the VERUS are the IP65 electrical cabinet and HMI enclosure, as well as the acrylic or laser-cut stainless-steel front guards.
Other customer benefits include quick bag-format changeovers, and a high-speed, high-precision servo-motor-driven jaw actuation that can achieve speeds of up to 110 bags per minute. The VERUS also offers flexibility with stand-up bag styles and a range of sealing for poly and/or heat-seal materials.
“This project was a direct result of customer needs,” said Dan Minor, vice president of sales and marketing for Hayssen. “We’ve seen the need for a hygienic yet dynamic system for many of ourfresh and frozen food customers. Our team invested in this project, and we trust this meets customer needs in a meaningful way. It’s about listening and building trust, so customers know they can rely on us.”
