Special features

HCW4

  • A particularly gentle handling of the products is guaranteed by the continuous motion principle
  • Highly efficient feeding system with integrated sorting station to eliminate sugar dust, chips and broken pieces
  • Servo control with PLC functions
  • Pickup of the products from the feeding plate and simultaneous wrapping material supply within the removal wheel reduces product transfers
  • Air support to allow the use of PP foils
  • Saving of wrapping material by »no product – no paper« -device
  • Automatic splicer to change wrapping material reels without stopping the machine
  • Ejection of spliced, mal-registered and unwrapped products
  • Servo-driven wrapping material feed rollers, wrapping material knife and material reels
  • Pneumatic core locking and reel tensioning devices
  • Heating wheel to seal the wrapping
  • Automatic temperature control of the sealing units
  • Opening of the heat sealing units at machine stop
  • Servo motor driven grouping section to prevent incomplete product groups
  • Servo motor driven transfer of product groups to a continuous or discontinuous motion secondary wrapping machine
  • Pressureless water treatment

FPC5

Servo motor driven lug chain to transport the products in a controlled position to the wrapping section of the secondary packaging machine

  • Pneumatic core locking and reel tensioning devices
  • Manual or automatic web tracking control
  • Servo motor driven foil pre – draw off system to allow splicing at full machine speed and correctly at the print mark position to minimize the amount of spliced products rejected
  • Print registration, detection system for manufacturer foil splices, code dating device, tear tape device
  • Two or three-stage longitudinal sealing device for cold or heat sealing
  • Segmented cross sealing device for cold and heat sealing with up to four sealing jaws
  • Cross seam sealing profile in longitudinal or transversal direction
  • Discharge conveyor with separate drive
  • Upper support discharge belt
  • Ejecting device for faulty packs
  • Suction device for empty pouches

  • Excellent accessibility for operation, maintenance and cleaning purposes
  • Easy operation due to the touch screen
  • Depending on local conditions, one operator is required
  • System of protection: IP 54

Combinations

  • Beside manual feeding, the machine can be directly synchronized to the production line by means of a THEEGARTEN-PACTEC feeding system.
