Proseal tray sealing technology enables pet food manufacturers to meet the growing demand for high-quality products and packaging, as well as offer mass customization solutions that can help businesses in the sector diversify and introduce online ordering for home delivery services.

Founded in 1998, UK based Proseal designs and manufactures high-quality tray sealing machines, conveyor systems, and sealing tools for food industry markets worldwide. Proseal is a part of the JBT family, and together they remain committed to continually supporting customers’ needs. The company has sales offices across the world, including New Delhi, India.

Transparency Market Research report predicts the global pet food market to grow at a CAGR of 6% in the ten years from 2019, reaching an expected value of US$168.3 billion (approximately Rs 12 lakh crore) by autumn 2029. Increasing consumer demand for premium quality products has led manufacturers to use high-quality materials and ingredients while streamlining their production techniques and processes, with the corresponding need for appropriate quality packaging to reflect this premium image.

Proseal tray sealer range

The comprehensive Proseal tray sealer range has the flexibility to perform in a wide range of disciplines, including gas flush Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP), vacuum MAP with lid control, and skin packaging. In particular, the company’s advanced sealing systems ensure absolute control and integrity of the seal between the lid and the tray, a vital requirement for applications that incorporate a substantial controlled-retortion-process or other high-pressure sterilization processes after sealing.

The tray sealers also include several Proseal-developed features that help to maximize performance, reliability and efficiency, such as the company’s pioneering Eseal energy-saving technology, ifilm intelligent film monitoring, and Protect RFID access login system that provides full audit trail visibility and layered security.

According to the company, Proseal’s AP60 linear conveyor tray sealing system can offer bespoke automated solutions for high-speed applications and demanding production conditions, based around individual customer production processes and requirements.

Among the system’s many features, the indexing conveyor’s length and width can be customized to accommodate particular de-nesting and filling requirements. Full or partial vacuum systems can be incorporated to enable post seal processes such as retort or High Pressure Processing (HPP), and X-ray inspection systems and checkweighers can be included after sealing for enhanced quality control. The AP60 also offers seamless integration with third party process equipment, including depositors, multi-head weighing applications and CIP systems with sealing speeds of up to 240 packs in a minute.

Furthermore, Proseal’s AP60 benefits from shared technology across the Proseal machinery range. Options can be specified and retro-engineered at the customer request, allowing a more flexible approach to each distinct application.

User-friendly and easy to maintain

All Proseal machines claim to offer a user-friendly interface and easy to maintain design, with a rugged and hygienic food industry-approved construction geared to full washdown protection.

“As the pet food market continues to expand, we were keen to provide solutions for companies requiring a significant upscale in their production of core products in new packaging formats, which could be met on one machinery platform,” said Tony Burgess, head of Sales and Control Systems, Proseal.

“The flexibility of our technology and the wide variety of machines available, including fully integrated conveyor systems, meaning we can offer a full turnkey production line solution which is key for this particular market. We are delighted that our expertise can help companies achieve a point of differentiation in the competitive pet food sector.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
