Horizontal / Vertical Wrapping Machine Crima

CRIMA was the first packaging machine and bagger with a patented packaging system by Lorapack (it can work in a horizontal, inclined and vertical position). It is sought after by customers worldwide in different fields as bakery, fruit and vegetables, butcher and mechanics.

The range of products, which can be packed using Lorapack’s patented packaging machines, is potentially endless: meat; fruit and vegetables; bakery and pastry products; technic, textile and hardware’s products; hobby and DIY products; picture frames; wooden outline; house accessories (handless, curtain sticks).

It is possible to pack loose products, as well as in tub (like cheese, wild berries, tomatoes); and also restaurant’s cover (a little bag with within cutlery and napkin). The maximum product dimensions depend on the length of the bobbin that is been used.

It is not advised to use Lorapack’s machine to pack: fragile materials (such as glass or ceramic); products with a lot of liquid (juices, sauces or mozzarellas with liquid); very thin powder (for example, flour, talcum and baking powder). 

You can use all kind of welding films, such as polyethene, polypropylene, polyester, coupled film, and also biodegradable and compostable materials.

The greatest difference is speed, which is a lot higher in CRIMA FAST. Thanks to the loading belt, included in this model’s standard equipment, and translating welding and cutting jaws, CRIMA FAST can increase the packaging speed, with a maximum of 50 packs per minute.

At a later time, you can move the loading belt and CRIMA FAST can work with the same inclination plane of a normal CRIMA.

All the machines, except EASY CRIMA, can modify the atmosphere within the pack with alcohol or gas.

Due to the reduced dimensions and low speed of EASY CRIMA, the addition of the packaging with the modified atmosphere would make work much slower. For this reason is not advised.

No, it doesn’t. Lorapack’s machines require very little technical assistance because they are easy to use. If needed, it can be enough technical assistance via phone. 

Naturally, to avoid machine problems, it is necessary to clean the machinery at the end of the production cycle.  

Of course! If the place, where the Lorapack’s machine is going to be used, is humid or is going to be used a washing reed system, it is possible to have the packaging machinery made with stainless steel

The first times, when you are not already accomplished with the machine, it can take 5 or 6 minutes to change the film bobbin. After, when you have learned how to do it, it takes 1 and a half minute

The machines use a flat film bobbin; neither single-pleat film nor tubular film. 

CRIMA, the secret of success

CRIMA was the first packaging machine and bagger with a patented packaging system by Lorapack (it can work in a horizontal, inclined and vertical position). Success came quickly with this machine, as it is exactly this invention that makes CRIMA an innovative and versatile product, sought after by customers worldwide in different fields as bakery, fruit and vegetables, butcher and mechanics.

Special features of the machine

CRIMA can reach up to 33 strokes per minute (depending on the size of the product to be packaged and the type of film used).
In addition, CRIMA and CRIMA FAST have a longitudinal unit of three pairs of sealing wheels: this unit enables packaging with thicker film, in a modified atmosphere with laminated film (insertion of gas or alcohol in the bags to avoid mould formation, eliminating oxygen and increasing product life).
The roll holder is a bridge structure, with 700 mm maximum standard roll width, 250 mm maximum external roll diameter.
The touch screen control panel is included in the packaging machine.

Other CRIMA details

With this packaging machine and bagger, our customers can use various types of film (printed, smooth, perforated, transparent and net) in polypropylene, polyethylene and laminated polythene. The possibility to work with different types of film is due to the sealing bars, designed specifically for these types of materials.
With CRIMA, it is possible to package horizontally (as trays and containers with low edges, etc.) through joining the machine to the optional input and output conveyors, or with the output chute, also optional when using inclined packaging.

Optional elements

Among the accessories available at Lorapack, we supply our customers with the gas injection device and alcohol spray.
The device to pre-heat the wheels is also available: it is needed to heat another pair of wheels, lengthening the film sealing time (for the airtight closure of even thicker films).
When the packaging products exceed 700 millimetres and a bigger sized roll is needed, the structure of the machine changes and becomes CRIMA 1000: a packaging machine that we customise and on which the roll can reach a width of 1000 millimetres (ideal for packaging panettone, one-kilo loaves and other products).
