SKIN PACKING - Skin packaging applies vacuum technologies to thermo-sealing machines.

It consists of the upper film enclosing both the product and its tray, fitting around it like a second skin. Vacuum packaging further extends product shelf life.

The easy-peel packaging materials result in increased ease of opening for the end user (OPTIONAL).

Skin packaging is ideal for attractive product presentation, complete sealing, minimized product damage, high safety standards, and enhanced hygiene and preservation.

By extending their shelf-life, skin packaging results in the increased commercial life of foodstuffs.

Visibility of the product is also improved, allowing products to be displayed vertically, thus reducing food waste and returns by enhancing shelf replenishment and stock rotation processes.

When packaged in skin conditions, meat and meat products continue their maturation process for enhanced tenderness, adequate texture, and optimum taste.

Once opened the product is immediately exposed to Oxygen and will only take a few minutes to regain its natural bright colour, without altering taste and freshness.

There are three different versions of skin packaging on the Oceania tray packer: non-protrusion, protrusion & protrusion onto a flat board.

NON-PROTRUSION - the height of the product does not exceed the depth of the tray in which it is packaged, to deliver optimum skin performance the tray height should be around 25-30mm

PROTRUSION - the height of the product exceeds the depth of the tray in which it is packaged, to deliver optimum skin performance the tray height must not exceed 20mm. The product can protrude above the tray lip by up to 30mm (standard) or 50mm (OPTIONAL)

PROTRUSION ONTO FLAT BOARD - a cutting-edge evolution of protrusion skin packaging using flat product support instead of traditional packaging methods. The product can protrude above the support by up to 30mm (standard) or 50mm (OPTIONAL). This method allows for the use of flat packaging surfaces including cardboard, thus reducing the need for plastic. The method further offers multiple printing options, thus providing a wide array of custom-designed product packaging solutions.

As well as skin packaging, the Perseus MAP Skin packer can also MAP pack by the purchase of an additional base plate for the tray die/mould. 

MAP - The introduction of the desired food gas mixture into the tray results in extended product life cycles and the optimum atmospheres for enhanced product quality and freshness throughout the shelf-life.

Compared to over-the-counter food stuff, the packaging is safer and tamper-proof with reduced spoilage, waste, and returns.

The use of increasingly suitable and advanced food gas combinations means the product maintains its original colour, taste, and freshness unaltered.

Not only does the extended shelf-life of MAP products allow our customers to significantly simplify distribution with less frequent deliveries, it also fosters shelf management systems and maximizes turnover during promotional sales and peak demand periods.

Vacuum & gas MAP is a packaging process that involves creating a vacuum to remove the air from the package, followed by the injection of the desired gas mixture via different pressures. The tray is then sealed trapping the gas mixtures inside with your product.

The Italian Pack Perseus Skin Packer is a fully automated machine that has been designed to meet all the needs of the packaging industry with different models available for sealing, partial vacuum, skin, gas flush, and MAP.

The distinctive feature of the entire Perseus line is its high-quality, high-speed, high-safety performance that is typical of more expensive machines with bigger footprints.

Constant research into new technologies has helped Italian Pack develop a compact machine that masterfully combines a state-of-the-art, cutting-edge system with user-friendly highly reliable equipment.

What sets the Perseus tray packers apart is the possibility to customer design them and integrate them with additional technical components to meet complete line requirements.

After decades of designing and manufacturing sophisticated packaging lines, our technical office is able to offer turnkey, complex packaging solutions fitted with infeed and outfeed conveyors, tray aligners, tray denesters, checkweighers., vibration and dosing units as well as markers.

Italian Pack Perseus Tray Packers can pack up to 60 trays/min in seal-only mode, 32 trays/min in MAP mode, and 28 trays/min in Skin mode. The same duly configured die/mould allows for different types of packaging: seal-only, MAP, and Skin.

The special film waste re-winder, a PLC touch screen to monitor machine parameters, and dedicated die/mould extraction and change systems are some of the technical features that make this machine stand out among others.

Its small features, competitive price, and low operating costs make this machine ideal for high-efficiency and high-performance standards.
