ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. – Ossid, powered by Pro Mach, will showcase a fully integrated high speed packaging line at the 2014 International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), January 28-30 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Ossid will also display individual machines, including leak resistant overwrappers and its horizontal form-fill-seal technology. (Ossid Booth #4315 Exhibit Hall B).

"Poultry and meat industries attendees will discover that Ossid can provide a one-stop-shop solution for an integrated packaging line that delivers performance, reliability, durability, and production data integration," said Jason Angel, Vice President of Sales.

Machines in the integrated line
The integrated line includes an Ossid stretch overwrapper, a weigh-price labeler, a case scale, and an ID Technology 252 printer.

The 500Si high-speed stretch overwrapper produces tightly wrapped, PVC case ready packaging at speeds of up to 120 trays per minute. An intuitive HMI ensures ease of operation and rapid, tool-free changeover between package sizes is quick and easy. The open stainless steel frame and other construction aspects are compatible with the harsh environments of poultry and meat packaging facilities. The 500Si has a relatively small footprint and is ideal for space-constrained environments.

The 1500 series weigh price labeler improves production with accurate and flexible label placement. The 1500 series is rated at up to 120 trays per minute. The unit is packed with both standard features and options. A host of data acquisition capabilities are available, including the productivity enhancing Ossid Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) tool.  

The CS5000 is an NTEP Certified case scale that weighs cases with the company's newest tolerance range of +/- .02lbs (.01kg). The unit's Microsoft SQL Database delivers seamless data integration and data transfer. Ethernet network functionality facilitates automatic order processing and tracking, remote user training, off-site maintenance, software upgrades, and more.

Ossid also offers the Model 252 label printer applicator from ID Technology, a division of Pro Mach. The Model 252 label printer applicator is the newest addition to ID Technology's extensive line of label printer applicators. This next generation printer applicator features the same modular design and robust construction of the Model 250 with the additions of a new touch screen user interface for easier programing, a redesigned rewind motor "module" that is hot swappable, a revolutionary plasma coated air assist tube that eliminates label sticking, and an optional service position Tamp Module.

Ossid individual machines on display at IPPE 2014
A horizontal form-fill-seal machine and two leak resistant overwrappers will also be on display in the Ossid booth.

The Integrity™ horizontal form-fill-seal machine delivers output rates of up to 15 cycles per minute. This machine can produce a variety of package types, including flexible, foil-foil, ambient, vacuum, modified atmosphere, and more. Designed for the most difficult wash-down environments, the Integrity is modular in terms of giving meat and poultry companies the opportunity to choose only those features most beneficial for their operation.

The 500E leak resistant overwrapper was the first overwrapping machine that paid for itself by using 36-41 percent less film than standard overwrap machines. Positive package air removal and unique design ensure the 500E produces tightly wrapped high or low profile leak resistant, end sealed, case ready packages at speeds of up to 60 trays per minute.

The 500im intermittent motion leak resistant stretch overwrapper is designed for red meat, pork, poultry, and produce packers that want a quality end-seal machine at an entry-level price. The 500im features an open stainless steel frame, a variety of standard features, and a wrap rate of up to 35 trays per minute.
