Ipeka utilises drive and control components from YASKAWA

The Finnish baking equipment manufacturer has developed a machine for the fully automated packaging of tin loaves. At the heart of this complex design are drive and control components from YASKAWA.

Ipeka’s new development, the “Loafmaster 50”, enables fully automated bagging of up to 50 tin loaves per minute – no mean feat: A movable arm pushes the bread into the previously opened bag, which is then sealed with a clip. The machine is very flexible and can be used both for whole and sliced loaves. The packaging material can take the form of different plastics, foils or paper. The smooth and precise execution of all processing steps is ensured by powerful control and drive components from YASKAWA.
