Chamber machines

MULTIVAC is a leading manufacturer of vacuum chamber machines. Our portfolio includes tabletop and free-standing chamber machines, as well as chamber belt machines. These machines dovetail seamlessly into your new or existing production environment, either as a stand-alone machine or as part of an automated packaging line. Reliability, durability and comprehensive service make MULTIVAC chamber machines a resilient link in your production chain.

Machine classes

What are your requirements for a chamber machine? A small footprint? Maximum cycle output? The secure sealing of special pouch materials?
MULTIVAC offers a uniquely wide range of machines to meet your ideal requirements. 

Meet our Tabletop chamber machines

MULTIVAC tabletop chamber machines can be used very flexibly due to their compact dimensions. This makes them an ideal packaging solution for butcher shops, restaurants,
hotels, direct marketing companies and farm shops, as well as for a wide range of consumer goods.

Principle of operation for the vacuum chamber machine

MULTIVAC developed its first vacuum chamber machine in 1961. We provided a crucial contribution to the introduction of vacuum packing for the production and marketing of food.
Thanks to the particularly simple packaging procedure, pouch packing is still the most flexible and efficient solution for reliable packing of small batches.

Evacuation: After the chamber lid has been closed, the vacuum chamber is a hermetically sealed space. A vacuum pump sucks out the available air until the vacuum value, which is defined in the machine control, has been reached. This process removes the atmosphere present in the vacuum chamber, the film pouch and the intermediate spaces within the product.

Modified atmosphere packaging: If the vacuum chamber machine has a MAP* system, the pack can be provided with a modified atmosphere if required. The vacuum chamber and the film pouch are filled with an inert gas mixture until the pressure defined in the machine control has been reached.

Sealing: The side of the film pouch, which has been open until this point, is sealed through the effect of heat and pressure. For this, the sealing bar is pressed onto the counter-pressure bar. At the same time an electrical impulse heats the heating band, during which the sealable components of the film pouch melt together. The resulting seal seam closes the film pouch permanently and hermetically.

Ventilation: To open the chamber, pressure equalization through ventilation with ambient air is required. This initially flows into the chamber slowly and then faster and faster. This gentle method of ventilation, which is also optimised for time duration, prevents damage to the film pouch by sharp or pointed parts of the product.

Large range of packs

A pouch pack can fulfil the widest range of requirements in the life cycle of a product. Its areas of application are equally diverse. Pouch packs protect against environmental influences, extend the shelf life of products and meet the wide-ranging needs of logistical chains.


  • Point of sale packs
    - Self-service packs for the end customer
    - Packaging of fresh products at the counter
    - Bulk packs for commercial customers
  • Maturation bags for meat and cheese for controlled maturing and the reduction of maturation losses

  • Storage packs for the hygienic and waste-free storage of products between process stages, which are separated by space or time (e.g. large diameter products for slicers)

  • Transport packs for hygienic and waste-free transport

Industrial and consumer products (non-food)

  • Point of sale packs
    - Self-service packs for the end customer
    - Bulk packs for commercial customers

  • Transport packs for the secure and efficient transport of products
  • Process packs for the transport within companies of semi-manufactured productsbetween process stages, which are separated by space or time
