- Main features
- Compact machine (short and narrow), resulting in increased productivity for small and medium jobs.
- Easy to use machine; easier for new-to-the-job operators to learn.
- Very low scrap rate during machine start-up. Machine has integrated ramp speed that is controllable through the HMI. This allows the machine to run at high speeds consistently after being setup at lower speed (reducing waste). Also, provides maximum film control when starting and stopping at high speeds.
- All stations are linked, in machine direction, to be moved all together according to printing or cutting position (provision to store station positioning settings in recipe).
- No maintenance flying knife (no-tool, fast blade replacement); guillotine available as optional for paper pouches production.
- Machine equipped with independent servo motor for each film feed drive (standard is 3 servo system).
- One servo motor for longitudinal sealing/cooling section and one servo motor for cross sealing/cooling section; alternatively (as option on specific request) all stations can be independently servo controlled.
- Low maintenance requirements; easy access to all stations for maintenance.
- Initial reject discard function to prevent operator confusion with badly sealed pouches on start-up, film is discarded by double feeding for a selected distance after the cutter.
- Digital printing friendly, compliant to Industry 4.0, CE Certified (UL/ CSA upon request).
- Very compact machine not only in terms of dimensions, but also due to the limited amount of material (linear meters) in the machine bed.
- All the stations and modules are very accessible.
- Reduced scrap rates during machine start-up, changeovers and roll changes.
- Machine with a very intuitive software and simple HMI. Once the distance between the various stations has been set the operator can move them all at once in the right position, ready to initiate next job.
- All temperatures are controlled via the HMI touchscreen. Machine can store hundreds of preset recipes for quick changeovers.
- Tool-less machine: Replacing sealing and cooling dies does not require tools which allows for easy and fast job changeovers.
- Splicing table for ease of operation during roll change, with integrated pneumatic film clamping system to maintain film tension
throughout the machine.
- Motor driven unwind with tension control to maintain constant tension throughout the unwind station.
- Ultrasonic edge guide system for smooth and consistent web tracking.
- Nip rollers are servomotor driven and pneumatically adjustable for excellent film control as it passes through the machine. 3 Servo driven draw rollers.
- Machine has eye mark sensor for precise positioning of sealing and punching. Machine has linear potentiometer-controlled dancer arms in conjunction with the nip rollers to adjust for print repeat issues.
- Pouch general tolerance ±1mm (length / width / height).
