New heat seal packing solution from AZCO
AZCO Corp. has announced a custom cut-to-length knife assembly with a sealing bar to make bags from poly tubing.
AZCO Corp. (Fairfield, NJ, US), an SO 9001:2008 certified company that develops solutions for a wide range of feeding and cutting applications, announced March 28 a custom cut-to-length knife assembly with a sealing bar to make bags from poly tubing. The product is used for replacing pre-made pouches.
The roll of material is guided from an unwind into the heat seal station by an idler roller. The length from the controller or width of the material can be varied to get larger pouches. The controller controls the impulse sealer creating a permanent seal. After sealing, the material is cut to length. An operator uses the color HMI touch screen for setup and operation of the unit. The entire station is mounted on a ½” thick aluminum plate. Two sensors ensure that material is present entering the rollers and exiting the knife assembly. Unit will automatically shut down when no product is sensed.
