WATCH: Jet Technologies showcases compact cup filler

Jet Technologies has brought the compact Ilpra Fill Seal 5000 cup filling and sealing system to AUSPACK 2019 and is hosting live demonstrations on stand D100. 

Despite its small footprint, the Ilpra system can fill up to 5000 pieces per hour and is designed for juices, dips, yoghurt, pestos, soups, sauces and honey, and comes with lots of optional add-ons.

PKN Packaging News editor Lindy Hughson spoke to Jet Technologies general manager Daniel Malki on the stand about the technology, and some of the other innovations on show in the coffee, dips and dairy, ready meals and wine and spirits categories. Watch Ilpra 5000 in action in this video.
