Huge value, small footprint

Designed to handle yoghurt, fresh cheese, tomato sauce, fruit puree, water and more, the  form, fill and seal machines of the M-F series are one of the market’s most compact solutions for cups in a wide range of shapes and sizes, combining a series of processes on one single machine.

Cups are thermoformed, filled with product, hermetically sealed with a film or foil and cut into singles or multi-packs.

Cups can be designed cost-effectively with interesting labelling solutions and freedom of cup geometry. Not only a marketing tool, the label also strengthens the cup’s sidewall stability, enabling a thinner bottom web resulting in lower material costs.
