Johnson Matthey is to unveil an innovative new product for automated packaging at the upcoming PMA Fresh Summit, that the group says could be the future of MA/MH bulk packaging.

The company has developed a unique MA/MH film structure called Xflow that is applicable for flow pack machines.

“The implications of our new technology Xflow are significant," explains Dr Gary Ward, technical development manager at Johnson Matthey, ACT-Tefen, Israel. “Improved throughput, reductions in material usage and waste as well as savings in labour make using Xflow in automated bulk packaging for fresh produce items like melons, pomegranates and stonefruit extremely exciting.”

Italian packing machine veteran and business partner Delfin Srl has developed a prototype machine ‘Galaxy 1200’, specifically designed for automated packing with Xflow. The Galaxy 1200 is now available for testing through Delfin’s handler in California, Main Line Industry Inc.

“The Galaxy 1200 machine is designed for any produce item packed in trays," says Delfin Srl owner Alberto Drago. "The packaging width is adjustable depending on the packers needs.

“We are delighted to be in partnership with Johnson Matthey to offer the fresh produce industry such an exceptional new way to enjoy the benefits of MA/MH freshness technology and improve packing operations and costs," Drago adds.
