CHUB – Filling and Packaging Technology
The CHUB system is an optimal solution to fill and pack almost any kind of pumpable products like liver sausage or soft cheese but also non-food products like silicon, hot melts or explosive emulsions.
Chub machines do not require any expensive preformed casings and clips. Instead of that the Chub uses flat roll-stock film and wire from a roll to form the closing clips. By using the Chub machine you can sage the additional cost for expensive casings and pre-formed clips.
Further advantages are:
• high speeds up to 160 packs per minute,
• extremely rugged construction suitable for 3-shift operation,
• accurate product weights,
• suitable for package sizes from 15 g to 10 kg with a diameter from 15 to 150 mm and a package length from 50 to > 2000 mm.
Principle of function:
Film is fed from a roll, formed around a cylinder and sealed to a continuous tube by means of a high frequency sealer, contact-, extrusion- or hot air sealer. The tube is then filled and closed by wire clips. Now the filled packages are separated by a knife. All operating steps are shown in the animation, please have a look.
By an optional “Easy-Open” accessory a tear stripe can be sealed to the package as an opening aid (if PVDC or PVDC-free film is used).
