Last month our Italian manufacturer, Delfin, held an open house to showcase the progress they have made over the last two years. Sales Agents for Delfin came from around the world to see the new and exciting products unveiled at this Open House. There was so much new information that I am still processing, and there is no way I can relay it all here and do it justice. We'll be telling you more about what I saw later, but here are a few highlights from the event:
Auriga, a new entry level, bottom-seal, flowpack machine that is small yet very capable. I expect it can beat value with any similar machine in the world. A machine of Italian design and fabrication, with lots of features, and at a low price.... Thank you Delfin.
Pecos, a vertical, horizontal/hybrid machine that makes stand-up pouches from rollstock. It is feature rich - runs printed film, applies zippers, makes a variety of pouch sizes and styles, etc. It is also available in an IP65 washdown version. We will have videos of the Pecos soon.
Yukon, makes large bags and stand-up pouches from rollstock. It is useful for bag-in-box applications and foodservice packs. It can add gussets on a pouch, handles, apply zippers, and run printed film. It is also available in an IP65 washdown version for food applications.
Echo, is a mid-level tray sealer for applying lidding stock on rigid trays. It has the complete range of options and accessories expected by packers of food products. We will exhibit the Echo at the PackExpo show in Las Vegas, along with the Yukon and Auriga.
Colorado, is a compact Vertical-Form-Fill-Seal machine that makes pillow packs. It has all the customary options and accessories you expect on a VFFS machine, but at an attractive price that puts it at a competitive position compared so similar machines on the market.
Delfin also acquired adjoining property and has greatly expanded their facilities. The new building houses added production areas with new fabrication equipment, a show room and a state-of-the-art bakery laboratory. Customers can now test equipment in a commercial setting using their own recipes and processes. A lot of exciting developments, so stay tuned.
