Who can resist crisp potato chips? We all know once we open a pack, and bite into the first crisp chip, it's hard to stop. Potato chips are addictive; no wonder they account for 70% of the global snack market. The global potato chip market is forecast to grow CAGR 4.40% during the period 2020-2025.

Crisp equals fresh
Research has shown that the crunch sound that comes when you bite into a chip is an important part of the food's desirability factor. People associate the loudness of the crunch with the freshness of the chips. Without their crispness, chips would no longer be appetising – no matter how great the flavouring.
Preserving the crunch with Nichrome's Excel Vertipack 320
To help marketers pack and preserve that priceless crunch, Nichrome designed Vertipack 320 - India's first vertical pouch packaging machine! A truly versatile innovation from Nichrome, Excel Vertipack 320 is a potato chips packing machine with many advantages:
- Packs a wide range of products: potato chips, dry fruits, snacks, pasta, grains, Indian namkeens, pulses, sugar, powdery products, etc.
- Variety of standup pouches and other formats: standee, centre seal pillow pouch, gusset pouch with D-cut, 3 side seal pouch, Penta Seal pouch, Quad Seal pouch
- Range of compatible fillers for different applications: Multi Head Weigher, Combifiller, EWF, Cup Filler, Servo Auger Filler
- Versatile MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) technology can be tailored to specific foodstuffs with different gases and proportion of gas in the mixture. When modifying the atmosphere inside the pack, heavier inert gases force oxygen out of the package. This results in extended product shelf life, product integrity, protection against discoloration, and for products like chips, a cushion-like buffer against damage (commonly referred to as a “pillow pack”).
With its high speed performance, sturdy design, online check weigher & metal detector, compatibility with multiple fillers, and a host of other features, Excel Vertipack 320 assures you robust performance with unmatched versatility.
