Slicing and automated packaging

From one source

With its automatic lines for slicing and packing sausage, ham and cheese products, MULTIVAC is able to perfectly link slicers to thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers

Our future-proof line solutions also include functionalities such as labelling, quality inspection, box packing and end-of-line solutions.

Comprehensive portfolio

MULTIVAC solutions for slicing and feeding, as well as our thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers, can be modularly configured. This is how we achieve slicer lines that are precisely designed according to individual requirements.

Slicer

Our innovative slicers are highly impressive in their perfect slicing results within a wide temperature window, their simple and rapid set-up and conversion, as well as their ergonomic and reliable operation.

Belt loader SB

With the belt loaders, we have a reliable solution for connecting slicers to thermoforming packaging machines that are not equipped with a horizontal loader.

Handling modules

Handling modules feature maximum loading accuracy and maximum flexibility for automated loading of thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers. Loading solutions with handling modules are also perfectly scalable.

Horizontal loader MHL

The hygienic loading system for sliced products is gentle on products and fully integrated into a thermoforming packaging machine. This means that no height differences have to be bridged between the slicer and the thermoforming packaging machine. This results in a significantly smaller footprint of the line.

A variety of portion shapes

The portioning unit of the slicer precisely and reliably performs virtually any portioning task – from precise placement of the slices in shingled portions to straight or staggered stacked portions through to shingled portions of wafer-thin cut and multiple portions. The servo-driven portioning system, which can be raised and lowered, enables stacked portions up to 80 mm high to be produced, along with tall shingled portions and large bulk packs.

 

Flexible handling of portions

The portions of the slicer can be taken directly into the packaging process or flexibly processed according to custom requirements.

Higher slicing quality, easier operation, lower costs

MULTIVAC slicers impress with the superiority of their rapid make-ready and conversion, their perfect slicing results at high output and their particularly ergonomic and reliable operation.


The MULTIVAC cutting system features outstanding cutting quality at warmer product temperatures and within a wider temperature window. Improved yield, high weight accuracy and reduction of give-away are further advantages of our innovative technology.


In addition to meeting the most demanding hygiene standards, MULTIVAC slicers achieve maximum throughput and an unrivalled level of user-friendly handling. Rapid product and format changes ensure maximum flexibility is achieved.


Thanks to their space-saving integration and uniquely reliable link with the packaging machine, MULTIVAC slicers make a major contribution to accelerating and simplifying the slicing and packaging procedures, thereby reducing costs significantly.

 

 

MULTIVAC slicers feature many advantages:

  • A wider temperature window and cutting without freezing simplifies product preparation
  • Reliable cutting of products with fresher consistency enables faster production throughput
  • Simultaneous cutting of several products with adapted knife speed achieves greater throughput
  • Smaller end pieces contribute to higher yield
  • Availability is increased through fast and ergonomic handling of the slicer during set-up and dismantling as well as when the products are being loaded.
  • Maximum flexibility is guaranteed by extremely fast format changes without line conversion, such as from three to four pack tracks
  • MULTIVAC Hygienic Design™ enables fast and reliable cleaning

 

 

MULTIVAC slicer – innovative solutions

Innovative slicing system and blade design

The innovative slicing system of MULTIVAC slicers is highly impressive. A “gentle cut” ensures that the product is cut in a manner that is controlled and smooth, and that the pressure is minimal. This means that sausage, ham and cheese can be sliced with extreme precision and gently. The longer cutting edge and the extended service life of the knives ensure higher productivity as well as reduced effort and costs. <STRONG/>

Advantages:

  • Even distribution of pressure and traction in the blade
  • Symmetrical cutting line
  • Consistent cutting performance across all tracks
  • Blade change without removal of counterweight
  • Wide regrinding range

Variable number of tracks

MULTIVAC slicers can be designed for one to eight pack tracks. Since track-centred loading ensures that the products are aligned exactly in the cutting chamber, irrespective of tolerance, a wide range of filling combinations are possible at maximum slicing speed and quality. Even if only one of multiple tracks is loaded with product, the MULTIVAC slicer still achieves first-class slicing results.

Fast conversion and cleaning

Converting the MULTIVAC slicer to different products and formats is very user-friendly with relatively few hand movements. Quick-change systems for the grippers accelerate and facilitate the conversion to different products and formats; time-consuming adjustment and tightening is no longer required. The gripper of the MULTIVAC slicer also requires no pneumatic connections. The cutting frame and all belts can also be changed quickly and without tools.


All product-dependent components can be changed in less than five minutes. This accelerates the processes for

  • Conversion of the slicer to another number of tracks
  • Conversion of the slicer to other products and formats
  • Easy and reliable cleaning

 

 

Reduced overall costs

The innovative technology for slicing and product guidance makes fast production throughflow possible, and it also enables the product to be processed at warmer temperatures. This ensures energy savings in product preparation as well as a reduction in the storage capacity required. High throughput, high availability and fast product changeover contribute significantly to reduced overall costs.

Efficient slicer lines

MULTIVAC offers various solutions for efficiently connecting slicers to packaging systems that best meet individual customer requirements. Whether highest possible output, maximum flexibility or integration of existing equipment, our future-proof complete solutions feature unparalleled efficiency, simple operation and the ultimate in hygiene.
