Ossid Introduces 8000MH Automatic Horizontal Form, Fill and Seal Machine for Meat, Fish & Poultry Packaging

    ROCKY MOUNT, N.C., April 18 /CNW/ - Ossid, a division of Pro Mach, has
developed the 8000MH Horizontal Form Fill Seal (HFFS) machine for a wide range
of meat, fish and poultry packaging applications, including flexible,
foil-foil, semi-rigid, rigid, ambient, vacuum, modified atmosphere and
re-closable. Employing the efficiencies of servo motion, Ossid uses three
servo motors to activate both the forming and sealing presses, as well as to
control the motion of the web feed conveying systems. The use of this
technology significantly reduces the consumption of compressed air, vastly
reduces potential air contaminants, and allows for higher and more efficient
cycle speed. The Ossid 8000MH integrates Control Logix from Allen Bradley with
its newest PV 1250 color screen operator interface. The user friendly software
is designed for expert monitoring, controlling, and reporting of all package
process functions. The Ossid 8000MH combines thermoforming and sealing presses
in an American-made form, fill, seal solution. AMI cleaning standards are a
design feature to insure a hygienic wash down needs.

    "The 8000MH's modular design provides customers with the flexibility they
require in their operations," said Fran Ventura, Ossid's vice president of
sales for the MH product line. "With a production rate of more than 30 cycles
per minute and compelling savings in utility costs, the 8000MH is one of the
industry's most efficient HFFS machine."

    The Ossid 8000MH's stainless steel construction makes it easy to maintain
and ideal for use in harsh environments. Unique and patented features on the
8000 MH is testimony to more than 50 years of packaging application
