INNOVATIVE THERMOFORMER FOR LEAFSKIN™ PACKAGING

INNOVATIVE THERMOFORMER-BASED SOLUTION WITH ZERO BASE SCRAP FOR LEAFSKIN™ PACKAGING

Leafskin packaging, skin packaging, sustainability packaging

At ULMA Packaging we have taken a step further in our pursuit of sustainable packaging solutions by developing a new model of thermoforming machine to package fresh products in vacuum skin packs on a flat cardboard base.

READ MORE

The new TFS 216 uses cardboard rollstock to produce the flat, non-thermoformed base of the packaging, with the main benefit of not generating any cardboard waste.

The drag chains that are commonly used in most conventional thermoformers require part of the original width of the reel to be discarded.

The TFS 216 is equipped with an innovative bottom film traction system without chain, so the LeafSkinTM packaging produced by our customers retains all of the base material, regardless of its width.

This solution is part of our ULMAweCare range of solutions, which are ultimately aimed at offering our customers more sustainable packaging solutions with a smaller environmental impact.

BENEFITS OF THE SOLUTION

Packaging costs

  • Due to the lack of base cardboard scrap, save up to 11% compared to other conventional thermoformers with chain transport systems.
  • Save up to 48% in base material costs and ecotaxes compared to the precut trays used for tray sealing.

Sustainability

  • Up to 80% less plastic compared to traditional skin packaging.

Logistics

  • A smaller carbon footprint is associated with the transportation of packaging material.
  • A smaller carbon footprint is associated with waste management.

HOW TO USE A DATA LOGGER

You don’t have to be a technical expert in using Tinytag data loggers

You don’t need to be a technical expert using a data logger. Find out how to set up a data logger and offload data with this helpful article.

Tinytag data loggers are designed to be easy to set up and use so that you can start gathering data straightaway.

Each data logger needs to be activated and downloaded individually, and Tinytag Explorer software makes these processes straightforward and easy to do.

For full instructions on how to use your data logger and how to use Tinytag Explorer, please consult the relevant product manual and the Tinytag Explorer Quick Start Guide.

How to set up a data logger

  1. Install Tinytag Explorer software on your PC.
  2. Connect the data logger or radio receiver to your PC using a USB cable, USB Inductive Pad or LAN (Ethernet) cable (depending on the logger).
  3. Click the ‘Launch’ button in Tinytag Explorer to start your data logger.
  4. After launching, you will be able to adjust the settings of your data logger. These include a description for the logging run and alarms.

Once set-up is complete, the logger is ready to use, and you can unplug the logger from your PC.

Place the logger where it is going to record data and turn the logger on to begin recording!

How to offload data from your logger

Radio and LAN (Ethernet) loggers automatically transmit data to Tinytag Explorer.

To offload data from a USB data logger, simply:

  1. Remove the data logger from its position at the end of the desired period of recording.
  2. Connect the logger to your computer once again using a USB cable.
  3. Open Tinytag Explorer and select the ‘Get Data’ option to start downloading data.

Data is initially displayed in a graph, but it can also be displayed as a table of readings. Data can also be exported into third-party software for more detailed analysis.
