Automac Ultra - Gruppo Fabbri


Like all the wrapping machines in the FABBRI HYBRID series, Automac Ultra introduces a new standard of features and performance to the sector, in terms of: Trays, Film, Performance and Connectivity.
Automac Ultra can in fact use trays and stretch film of any type (PVC-based, PE-based, bio-based and compostable film); it is also equipped with devices to obtain the best in terms of winding quality, production speed, timing and format changeover mode.
Automac Ultra has been designed according to INDUSTRY 4.0 requirements and can therefore be connected to factory ERP and MES systems.

The new Fabbri Hybrid range (Automac Dual, Automac Industrial, Automac Ultra) guarantees perfect packaging of fresh and very fresh products with any type of tray (recyclable plastic, bioplastic, cardboard, balsa wood, cellulose pulp, etc.), neutral or printed stretch film (traditional, biobased, compostable) and labelling machine that handles compostable labels.
From now on, adopting a fully compostable packaging or alternating the materials used according to customer requirements will no longer be a problem: retailers and industrial packers will be able to maintain operations without interruption, without the need for technical adaptations and, above all, without additional costs.
Try Automac Ultra in combination with Nature Fresh, the first compostable film for automatic packaging with certification of domestic and industrial compostability according to the EN 13432 Standard: you will be able to maintain operations without interruptions, without the need for technical adaptations and, above all, without additional costs.

Main features
Fast and flexibleA high-speed automatic stretch machine, Automac Ultra reaches 75 ppm. These parameters are adjustable according to specific production requirements.
Easily installed in-lineAutomac Ultra can be equipped with feeding extensions and unloading roller conveyors that allow it to always find the best integration with the equipment entering and leaving the packaging machine. The machine's infeed can dose the irregular arrival of trays, fitting perfectly in line without the need for cadencing belts.
Automatic carriage adjustmentThe automatic adjustment carriage positions itself at the width specified in the wrapping program without requiring operator intervention and therefore without slowing down production.
Automatic adjustment pressThe automatic adjustment press positions itself at the height specified in the wrapping program without requiring operator intervention, again speeding up format changes.
Side clamps The lateral clamps hold the film in the longitudinal direction, obtaining a stretch on 4 sides and a better quality of the package.
Product exit controlThe product exit control stops the machine in case of trays accumulation on the downstream line, improving the overall efficiency of the line.
Touch-screen 10"The intuitive interface of the 10" touch screen monitor allows the browsing in the machine menu for viewing and setting the wrapping parameters and recalling or saving the wrapping programs.
The parameters, production reports and programs are also connectable to factory ERP and MES systems: the machine is set up for the application of the requirements of INDUSTRY 4.0.
Devices connectionAutomac Ultra exchanges signals with the rest of the machines on the line, and also provides the input for connection to the local LAN.
Self-diagnostic propertiesThanks to sophisticated self-diagnostic properties, Automac Industrial can offer continuous production with minimal interruptions.
Electric panel IP54The IP54 electrical panel improves the machine's resistance in wet working environments.
Compatible with all types of traysAutomac Industrial guarantees the wrapping of all types of trays, regardless of their shape, fancy colours and material (plastic, bioplastic, cardboard, wood pulp...). Thanks to numerous dedicated options, optimal wrapping from catering trays to large trays is always guaranteed. The product is packed with particular attention to the sealing on the underside of the tray: the sealing tape on the outlet oven has been designed to optimise the sealing of the film without overheating the tray and the product. The automatically regulated ejector guarantees high packaging speeds even with high trays or with overflowing product, optimising production and eliminating any possibility of trays getting stuck in the machine.
Compatible with any type of filmAutomac Ultra guarantees the perfect packaging of all fresh products with all types of stretch film in both neutral and printed formats (PVC-based, PE-based, bio-based, compostable).
Improved performances with printed filmsAnyone who wants to make the most of the communication potential of packaging will find Automac Ultra an excellent solution. Automac Ultra is able to work at high speed even with printed films, thus combining branding and efficiency in a single production process. Fabbri's Designers are available for advice and to create the most effective layout according to your communication and branding objectives. Thanks to the brilliant combination of Fabbri Group's printed stretch films, a new film unwinding and tensioning system and the sealing tape on the exit oven, designed to optimize film sealing without overheating, Automac Ultra produces perfect packages every time, in which the freshness of the product, held firmly on the tray, shines through and is enhanced in the best possible way.
Eight independent entrancesPeriodic cleaning and regular maintenance of Automac Ultra is greatly facilitated by no less than 8 access points to the internal parts of the machine, such as the sliding cover above the infeed conveyor, useful for prompt product removal, the ejector and the lifter, which can be quickly removed and washed separately, and the gull-wing opening of the covers, which is especially appreciated when space is limited. There is also nothing underneath the lifter, which ensures perfect hygiene during production and makes cleaning as easy as possible.
Safety firstAutomac Ultra has been designed in compliance with the strictest safety regulations in force: access to the internal parts is regulated by the microswitches on the machine inspection covers, which block operation if they are opened. The rounded lines and absence of sharp edges also reduce the consequences of accidental impacts to a minimum.
Optimal performance-consumption ratio If there is no product, the machine stops and waits, drastically reducing consumption and wear.
Reel replacement in less than 45 secondsThe reel can be changed in about 45 seconds, ensuring an immediate restart of production. The optional "second reel holder" further reduces this time to less than 3 seconds. The low weight of the reels manufactured by Fabbri Group can make replacement even easier.
