Unica 20 - Semiautomatic Vacuum tray sealer

Starting From: $14,000.00
PLEASE NOTE: That the video shows the Unica 20 with the optional skin feature. Otherwise the Unica 20 is a MAP or seal only system.

If you are starting up a new project and want to package your product with either an ambient seal, modified atmosphere (MAP) or vacuum skin pack (See also Unica Skin), then the Unica 20 is the ideal system for you.

The Unica 20 was designed for growing businesses that require a robust and affordable solution for tray sealing. It is the ideal packaging option for a wide variety of applications such as takeaway meal containers, retail grab trays or frozen vacuum or skin pack CPET trays.

The Unica 20 tray sealing machine produces quality packaging with a level of repeatability and reliability only found in much more expensive units.

As an added benefit, when the time comes to upgrade to a larger and faster system, most customers retain their Unica 20 for pro-typing and short runs.

Typical Applications

2) The drawer is pushed into closed position
3) Once the drawer is closed the process begins as follows:
a) The preset vacuum (if selected) is pulled
b) A gas is injected (if selected) to the preset level
c) The tray is then sealed and the film is diecut around the tray
4) The cycle is complete and the drawer is opened.
