Oystar M-F 14 Cup Packaging LineOystar USA, Edison, NJ, whose parent company, Oystar Group, develops, manufactures and sells both complete packaging lines and individual machines for the dairy, food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals industries – offers the new Oystar Erca M-F 14 Cup Packaging Line for the form, fill and seal of food products including yogurts, puddings, juices and water. The machine meets all 3-A Sanitary Standards which promotes food safety and public health. The cost-effective machine forms and fills cups of various shapes and sizes at a maximum forming depth of 70mm, and at a maximum output of 21,600 cups per hour.

Among the machine’s many distinctions is its striking compactness: the M-F 14 occupies up to 70% less floor space than comparable equipment. The machine also provides easy accessibility and an operator-friendly working height of 1050mm (41.33 inches). Electro-pneumatic cabinets and filler are integrated into the base, and a simplified Human/Machine Interface contains only stop and start prompts. The M-F 14 uses a standard Programmable Logic Controller.

Several optional upgrades to the standard M-F 14 Cup Packaging Line also are available, including:

  • Servo drive for conical cup labeling
  • Piston filler with servo drive
  • Lid stretching
  • Pick & place packer
  • Oystar 10-inch touch screen
  • Ionization bar with dust removal
  • Recovery tank with return pump

“The M-F 14 is considerate of both floor space and ease of operation, and efficiently packages a wide range of cups for food industry customers,” said John W. Panaseny, president of Oystar USA. “The machine opens up a variety of options without occupying an abundance of valuable production line real estate.”
