Multivac Launches Energy and Resource Efficient Thermoformer at Interpack

Having debuted its e-concept thermoformer requiring no compressed air or cooling water at several trade shows in the past year, Multivac is launching a commercially available, ultracompact model this week at Interpack 2011 in Hall 5, Stand E23/ E37.

The new Multivac R 095 thermoformer is just under 7 feet long (2.1 meters) and suits users who have limited space and are new to automated thermoform fill-seal packaging. Multivac reports that because all lifting and cutting functions are powered by electric drives instead of pneumatics, the machine achieves a level of energy efficiency not previously available with this type of equipment.

Eliminating the need for cooling water in the machine also represents a substantial logistical and cost advantage for users.  

“The R 095 is yet another example of the innovation Multivac is able to bring forward as the industry leader,” says Jan Erik Kuhlmann, President and CEO, Multivac Inc., in a press release. “While this particular model will be best suited for lower-volume applications, it serves as an important first step in demonstrating the commercial viability of electric drive technology in packaging machinery.”

Multivac will launch the R 095 in North America this year at Process Expo, booth #4640, November 1-4 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. 

Multivac has been celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The company was founded in 1961 by Sepp Haggenmüller in Böhen in the Allgäu and today the MULTIVAC Group has more than 3,000 employees worldwide, including over 1,300 at its headquarters in Wolfertschwenden (Allgäu).

It all began with the first MULTIVAC chamber machine which Sepp Haggenmüller built in 1961. The first MULTIVAC thermoforming machines followed in 1966-1967, which brought a breakthrough internationally for Sepp Haggenmüller and his partners. From the seventies onwards, the machine manufacturer from Allgäu began to develop his machine designs focusing on resources conservation, hygienic design, and consumer protection. Today, more than half of the thermoforming packaging machines worldwide come from the machine manufacturer from Allgäu.
