The A7 by Arcil : the next generation FFS machine
Relying on Arcil’s fundamentals, the A7 is an highly competitive state-of-the-art equipment that brings maximum flexibility in desserts and fresh dairy products manufacturing.
Customer insight and design to cost were the two guidelines led to the successful development of this next generation FFS machine.
The very best of Arcil’s expertise as a standard
The A7 was born in the mind of Arcil’s salesteam as a top-class solution for the demanding dairy market industry. Since the very early stage of the project, the A7 was assigned the task to retain the best of Arcil’s efficiency and hygiene in a modular, flexible and evolutive FFS machine with fully mastered design.
User-centric design: improved ergonomics
Sticking to operator’s well-being as a core value, Arcil’s development team endeavoured to improve ergonomics wherever possible. The A7 provides more transparency for a better visibility as well as an easier access to all intervention areas. Handling operations are all carried out at chest height.
Maximum on-site flexibility for immediate response to market changes
The A7 has been designed to allow on-site capacity and cup size adaptation, so that manufacturers can react quickly to new markets requirements and reduce the global downtime of their lines. In 10 days only, the line can for example evolve from 24 to 32 cups per stroke or process 63x63 mm cups instead of 48x48 mm ones.
The A7 is also prefitted to process any kind of plastics (PS, PLA, PET or PP).
Finally, the A7 does not require to anticipate the need of additional dosing units, as a modular frame allows to easily extend the filling station when needed.
