The Orics form/fill/seal system thermoforms APET material and is good for food, medical devices, hardware, electronics, or anything needing either a permanent or reclosable flexible film lidding. A partnership among Orics, lidstock provider Berry Plastics, and forming web supplier Klockner Pentaplast brings global advantages.
Virtually every business is looking for ways to utilize automation to improve effectiveness and cut costs. The food packaging and pharmaceutical packaging industries are among those finding solutions in custom designed machinery to meet their specific needs.
Along with government mandated regulations for safety, the fiscal need for efficiency and cost-saving are driving increased demand for labor-saving automation to address specific market trends.
Consumer demand for convenience drives most markets but the main concerns in food processing remain the same; maximizing yield, reducing waste, enhancing reliability and ensuring hygiene and safety.
The rising demand for ready-to-cook meals and prepared cuts of meat are driving developments in modified atmosphere packaging and skin pack formats with extended shelf-life.
Quality control is another important factor driving the automation boom and industries are relying more on robotic QC mechanisms to ensure that their product is as good as it can be when it reaches the market.
Workplace safety is of course a major driver in the shift to automated systems. Injuries in any production line are more than just an inconvenient byproduct of manufacturing, they serve to drive insurance premiums up as well.
ORICS Industries has been designing and manufacturing custom solutions for packaging since 1990 and is the leader in modified atmosphere packaging systems worldwide. With a focus on solving specific the challenges faced by individual industries, ORICS provides technological answers to maximizing yield, reducing waste, extending shelf life, and quality control, while delivering hassle free systems that are reliable and forward thinking so they last for years, even decades.

Modified Atmosphere Packaging is the combination of an optimal blend of Nitrogen and/or Carbon Dioxide with in a high-barrier or Permeable package. A finely adjusted and carefully controlled gas blend is created to meet the specific respiration need for each packaged food product.
To package a product in a modified atmosphere requires sophisticated machinery, to flush out air from the packaging chamber and replace it with a different gas or precisely defined mixture of gases, then seal the product in the packaging so that only the modified atmosphere surrounds the product and not any other unwanted gas.
Trays and Packaging films are selected to match the characteristics and needs of each food product. For instance, meat and fish require very low gas permeability films so, For non-respiring products (meat, fish,cheese, Etc..) high barrier films are used. The initial flushed gas mixture will be maintained inside the package. Fruit and Vegetables, However, are respiring (breathing) products where the interaction of the packaging material with the product is important. In this instance, the permeability of the packaging film is adapted to the products respiration. The goal is to establish an equilibrium between the O2 and the CO2 inside the package and this balance results in extended shelf life. in nearly all instances, a M.A.P gas mix slows down the product deterioration, spoilage and rancidity caused by mold and other aerobic organisms.
WHY M.A.P SEAL ?
Longer shelf life M.A.P packages allow food processors, food manufacturers, food distributors and food retailers to better control product quality, availability and costs. Longer freshness cycles permit grocers to eliminate frequent product rotation, removal and restocking; thereby reducing labor and waste disposal cost. Distributors can extend distribution territories or offer a greater variety of product line to the retailer, Since less frequent product replacement requirements permits growth in other areas. Food Manufacturers are able to take advantage of extended replacement cycles to reduce production replacement demands. Manufacturing capacity can be more profitably utilized by developing and offering new products.
