Harpak-ULMA at IPPE 2023

Booth #C10767

Connect live and in person to see the latest packaging innovations in action.

The International Production and Processing Expo is a great opportunity to reconnect with industry peers and discover the latest packaging innovations. We’re thrilled to be returning in-person this year, and have plenty of exciting features planned for you in our booth. 


This past year has shown us that change is inevitable, with or without a global pandemic to worry about. It’s important that your machine can stand the test of time and adapt to your packaging needs as your goals and strategies change. 


You have a partner in managing that change with Harpak-ULMA. 


Flexibility has consistently been a focus as we strive to build productive, cost-efficient, lasting packaging solutions. Come experience the many faces of flexibility in packaging in our booth and discover how they can help you adapt to change and scale your production. 


Get a sneak peek of the machinery and related innovations we’re bringing to IPPE in 2022. We have solutions in thermoforming, flow wrapping, tray sealing, automation, and more.

Flexibility for your packaging line means...

Adapting to changing trends

The world of packaging moves fast. Trends like sustainable packaging, increased snacking, and clean label products all require shifts in your packaging strategy. Adapt to these changes and go to market quicker with flexible machines that can produce several sizes and packaging formats with a variety of films.

Reducing production downtime

We know time is valuable on the production floor. That's why decreasing downtime with simpler changeovers on machines, advanced training using augmented reality, and excellent customer service are a priority for us. Less downtime means more flexibility to scale your production.

Remaining user friendly

Flexibility doesn't just apply to your machinery and run times. It applies to your operators, too. Simplifying your machine design with streamlined training solutions helps your team develop skills faster and reduce error. That's why Harpak-ULMA offers Allen Bradley controls on a growing number of machines and provides advanced online training solutions.

Thermoforming Solutions

Thermoforming solutions are truly flexible and great for all types of food applications. 


Your packaging can adapt to changing markets and trends with various package formats and sizes available on the same machine, including vacuum, MAP (modified atmosphere packaging), and skin. You also have the option of running flexible and/or semi-rigid films. 


Our thermoforming solutions also help you reduce downtime with simple tool-free, single-person changeovers that take 10 minutes or less. 


Allen Bradley controls are available on our standard and skin thermoformers. They come standard on our TFS 500 through TFS 700 models. These controls may be more familiar to trained technicians and ensure more readily available parts.

Flow and Stretch Wrapping Solutions

Flow wrap solutions have broad applications and plenty of built-in flexibility, giving you the ability to quickly adapt to different product sizes and package with or without a carrier tray. 


Flow wrappers are also dual-purpose machines, which can be designed to run several different film types like polypropylene, laminate, and polyolefin shrink. Flexible machine components also allow you to change your seal rollers, cross seal jaws, and folding boxes to create the ideal package to meet your end customer’s needs. 


These machines also help you reduce downtime with simple tool-free changeovers that take 5 to 10 minutes or less and can be completed by a single person. 


Allen Bradley controls are available on our Atlanta, Artic, and Flow Vac 55 S.D. models, which can provide familiarity to trained technicians and provide more readily available parts.

Vertical Tight Chicken Packaging

Here’s a first look at the flow wrapping solutions you’ll be able to see live at IPPE.


Vertical Bagger with Tight-Chicken™ Application

Innovative leak-proof and fully-hygienic packaging solution for whole chickens. TightChickenTM ensures that the bag fits the product like a second skin, completely eliminating the risk of leaks and ensuring that the product arrives at stores in compliance with the applicable hygiene regulations.

Tray Sealing and Forming Solutions

Tray sealing and forming solutions are flexible and allow you to accommodate different tray geometries on the same line and rapidly introduce new tray geometries with in-house tray forming.
These machines can be designed to produce various packaging applications on one machine, including MAP (modified atmosphere packaging), pre-cut lid, Heatseal, Stretch Seal, Darfresh® on tray, protruding, super protruding, skin, SLIMFRESH®, and ZERO®. 
Downtime is reduced with simple, single-tool changeovers that take only 10 minutes. The machines also have an open design for easy assembly changes in a matter of minutes, and offer quicker sanitization with sanitary design conveyors (which is ideal if your production involves switching between certain allergens). 
Allen Bradley controls are available on all of our G. Mondini tray sealers – providing familiarity to trained technicians and more readily available parts.

Sustainable Solutions with PaperSeal®

PaperSeal® offers flexible, sustainable packaging solutions for a variety of applications. These paperboard trays are made from recyclable, renewable fiber that can be formed with the G. Mondini Platformer. You’ll get a chance to see PaperSeal® in action at the show. Watch the video to the right to see how the packaging works and can be recycled.
These trays offer:
  • 80% Less Plastic
  • 59.5% Less Greenhouse Gas Emissions 
  • 69.2% Less Energy 
PaperSeal® trays have rigid flanges, which help create a better seal from your tray sealer. It also means you can use a denester if trays are preformed, and no special conveyors are required. The marketing and branding options are also extremely flexible. There is a six-color print on the inside and outside of the package as well as the option to add windows on sidewalls. PaperSeal® also supports multi-cell trays and a variety of tray shapes. 
On the Show Floor You can see PaperSeal® trays filled and sealed on the Trave 350 tray sealer.
Complete Thermoforming Automation Line
Product to Pallet Automated Lines

Product to Pallet Automation

Automation affords several significant benefits for packaging manufacturers. It reduces operational spending by lowering labor costs, minimizes waste from human interaction, increases throughput and productivity, and creates a safer work environment by replacing repetitive, strenuous, manual jobs.  


We have secondary packaging options for top loading, side loading, bottom loading, and wrap-around case packing.  


We address conventional packaging automation equipment as well as advancements in robotic automation that are paving the way to new levels of scalability and cost containment for producers of every size and industry. Robotics can now handle depalletizing, de-casing, infeed handling, raw food handling, primary packaging, secondary packaging, mixing (combo packs), and palletizing. Speed to market, standardization, cost, and reusability are all concerns when deciding whether to use automation and how much of your line to automate. Harpak-ULMA helps with every aspect of your production, from start to finish. 

Have questions before the show?

We’re excited to reconnect in person at IPPE, but we’re also happy to be a resource for you year-round. If you have a packaging need or question, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’ll connect you with our packaging experts and deliver the guidance and insight you deserve.
