The APM 2500 is a thermoforming vacuum packaging machine designed to pack food, non-food or medical products. The package is created directly by the machine using bottom and top rolls stock of film. APM 2500 series suitable for small size business operation, can be used for pack meat, fish, cheese,seafood and dairy products, also for pharmaceuticals applications and much more.Vacuum, gas flushing, MAP options available.

    • Capacity max.10 cycles.
    • Bottom film: Rigid or Flexible
    • Top film: Flexible (PA/PE film, paper, aluminium foil)
    • Loading area max.800mm.
    • Width max.420mm.
    • Forming depth max.100mm.



Compared to the manual vacuum packaging are:

  • Reduced package cost up to 50%
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved product appearance
  • Less product handling in the packaging process
  • Prevent product contamination
  • Greater assurance of packaging

Construction features:

  • Solid stainless steel frame, for strengthening of systems and mechanisms and for safe transportation.
  • Machine is constructed of stainless steel AISI 304
  • Durable gripper chain guides casing.
  • Corrosion-resistant gripper chain.
  • All Scandivac machines are equipped with servo drive system for gripper chain.
  • 4 or 6 point independent lifting mechanisms with pneumatic drive and grease lubrication from a central location.
  • Freely variable distance between moulds, giving a possibility to use dies with different cut-off lengths.
  • Easy access to any system or mechanism, with easy open side guards.
  • Components with protection level – IP 65 as standard.

Control system:

  • Control panel: Color touch screen panel.
  • Control elements: Allen Bradley or OMRON programmable controller.

Vacuum system:

  • BUSCH vacuum pump;
  • IWN vacuum valves.


Using thermoforming vacuum packaging machine SCANDIVAC it is possible to pack any product in industrial, food and medical sectors. It is possible to pack large amount of products in the shortest possible time. Design of the package is tailor-made.
