The new Piranha closing machine was developed by GNA srl in order to support users and consumers interested in eco-friendly alternatives.
The company from Ozzano dell'Emilia (BO), which boasts over thirty years of experience and presence on domestic and international markets, is investing many resources in the design and implementation of innovative solutions which respect the environment.
The current priorities of the fruit and vegetable sector are a high level of automation and high quality processes for the sustainable packaging of fruit and vegetables.
The closing technology used by Piranha is suitable for automatic packaging solutions. After filling the cardboard food boxes, these are closed by a dynamic punching system.
Piranha can be introduced in any processing line. "The machine - GNA explains - is composed of three parts: the feeding of the trays, carried out through two conveyor belts, which also have the function of separating the products; a system of guides to fold the upper edges of the cardboard; the dynamic punch unit, which closes the two overlapping laps".
The control panel is very simple and intuitive and is composed of a series of lights, which indicate the status of the machine, and a series of buttons for automatic gear management.
Piranha does not require compressed air. "It is a 'green' novelty, since it is a new packaging line that allows you to produce a package without using plastic films," says the company.
