The Fill Seal line which is essentially what we call POT Fillers includes a wide range of models both In-Line and Rotary that we manufacturewhere apot is denested, filled and then sealed. The machines can pack a wide range of products using different preformed trays/pots (PS, PP, APET, CPET, Aluminium, laminated cardboard). The tray/pot can be sealed by means of either a lid, or with film. The Film application version can be operated in seal only, vacuum and vacuum/gas modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). Some examples of items packaged on these machines are: Yogurt, Dessert, Spread, Jam, Cream, Soup, Pet Food, Liquid, Dressing, Sauce, Baby Food, Jelly, Juice, Butter and many more.


Ilpra Foodpack Tray sealer models are manufactured and range from the table top semi-automatic machines to the fully in line automated models. The tray sealers are designed to allow the packing and sealing of products in preformed trays (Usually in PP, APET, CPET, Aluminium and Laminated Carton) through the process of top sealing (sealing only/atmospheric seal, vacuuming, gas flush or vacuum/gas (Modified Atmosphere Packaging MAP) or Skin packaging (skin, over skin, extra skin).



The Formpack Thermoforming lines manufactured by Ilpra are used for creating and forming the tray/container from a bottom web thermoforming film (flexible or rigid), the product gets added to the tray (manually or automatically) and then the packaging is closed using a top sealing film.

The type of packaging that can be made on these lines is seal only (atmospheric seal), vacuum, MAP (protective atmosphere) or in Skin. Ideal for packaging all types of food and non-food products, they are also suitable for packaging medical products such as instruments, devices or syringes.
