REVOLUTION TWIN

FEATURES

  • MAP-F (Modified Atmosphere Packaging).
  • MAP-V (Vacuum Gas Flushing)
  • SkinPAC
  • SkinPAC Plus
  • Machine can be operated from both sides
  • Fully portable, caster mounted with fixed locking feet.
  • Date coder integration ready.
  • Pre-Printed or Pre-Punched registered film.
  • Passive/through conveyor.

ENERGY SAVING

  • POWERDRIVE – fully electric zero air.
  • Incorporates PA’s novel patented MAGPAL (magnetic) technology that allows the tool lift mechanism to be deactivated during the seal process, minimising machine energy use by up to 98% and provides longevity of the seal station.
  • “Soft Seal” function, changes the profile of the seal cycle to reduce noise and soften the impact in the sealing phase. Benefits include; even further reduced energy consumption, increased life of the seal station, minimal component wear in the tool and invariable seal integrity.
  • Energy usage reduced during automatic standby mode.
  • Reduced gas consumption and shorter cycle times on MAP

EFFICIENT

  • Inventive in-feed control now detects the last pack of a cycle and accelerates it at a greater feed rate reducing the time taken to incrementally step the packs into the machine, allowing the in-feed conveyor speed to be fully optimised and increase final output rates.
  • Rapid optimal throughput with up to 16 impression per cycle.
  • Innovative dual, robotic servo driven seal stations working in tandem providing a significant increase in seal force and reduction in power consumption with the new arrangement.
  • User-friendly high clarity 12” HMI operator touch screen with interactive software for setup, and self-diagnostics with operator prompts.
  • Manually adjustable self-centring infeed tray guides, adjusted through a reversed leadscrew on a visual dial to manage the position. This can be recorded for future use. An automatic servo option is also available through the HMI and recipe setup of that program.
  • Pre-set accurate recipe based temperature control, monitored with minimal fluctuation. 
  • Film and foil as thin as 17mu can run seamlessly if required reducing packaging waste.
  • Up time is maximised by zoned guarding which ensures machine cycle can be restarted immediately after a guard circuit has been broken.
  • High speed (ITS) Intelligent Transfer via an interpolated multi axis robotic motion system, which ensures a continuous flow of trays through the machine from infeed to outfeed eliminating any need for pausing or buffering.
  • Rapid optimal throughput with up to 10 impression per cycle.
  • High-force servo driven seal station giving a 300% increase in seal force compared to conventional pneumatic system.
  • User-friendly high clarity 12” HMI operator touch screen with interactive software for setup, and self-diagnostics with operator prompts.
  • Manually adjustable self-centring infeed tray guides, adjusted through a reversed leadscrew on a visual dial to manage the position. This can be recorded for future use. An automatic servo option is also available through the HMI and recipe setup of that program.
  • Pre-set accurate recipe based temperature control, monitored with minimal fluctuation.

Description

REVOLUTION TWIN

The Revolution Twin lane is a large bed, fully electric automatic tray sealer using motion control technology to provide high speed output in a twin lane format with quick tool changes. Incorporating POWERDRIVE technology, there is no requirement for a compressed air supply. It can be used to seal reel fed film to pre-formed trays and can be configured to use MAP-F gas flushing, full MAP-V vacuum for extended shelf life.  Dependent on tray size up to 16 trays can be sealed at a time giving a maximum output of 256 packs per minute. Electric supply only is required for this machine.

MATERIALS

The Revolution Twin has the ability to heat seal reel fed film, paper or laminate lids to preformed trays and containers of CPET, Polypropylene, PVC, Styrene, Board, Smooth walled foil, pre-cut board, Pulp, Paper, Plastic, and many other types of containers.

FLEXIBLE TOOLING

  • POD Technology Tools; the tooling is modular in design with removable impression cartridges that can be changed rather than a whole tool being removed, stripped and repaired. The cartridges can be replaced simply and quickly with 2 fixing bolts from the main host plate. Changes can be made online in the machine improving efficiency with unplanned downtime.
  • The tool for each lane is loaded on the respective side of the machine for simple loading.
  • Tooling split for easier moving and storing on twin lane tools arrangements.
  • Less than two minute tool changeover with quick release tools.
  • Inbuilt TDS (Tool Docking System) aligns electrical and gas connectors.
  • Lightweight tooling for manual loading.
  • Rapid adjustment with telescopic transfer arms catering for different height trays.
  • Quick release cutting blades.
  • Waterproof heater mats reduce failures during cleaning and reduce heat up times by up to 36%.
  • Eco-Cut – reducing film waste.
  • Horseshoe cut/close cut options
  • Foil crimping.
  • Inside cut for neater pack presentation.

HYGIENIC

  • Full hygienic, robust construction to food industry standards.
  • Full open access with interlocked guarding and open construction base for hygiene.
  • Quick and easy to remove infeed and outfeed flat PU belt conveyors for simple maintenance and improved cleaning access.

INTELLIGENT

  • Recipe driven settings for registered pre-printed film – automatically adjust reel position to eliminate the need for manual set up during changeovers.
  • High accuracy automatic registered film setup removes the need for registered film adjustment rollers improving process operation and setup.
  • Auto adjusting film tension system manages the film tension in relation to the amount of film on the reel.  The tension system automatically adjusts the tension setting when the reel reduces in diameter and is set up through the stored recipe.
  • Intelligent alarm system, if one preregistered eye-mark is missed on low quality printed film the machine continues to function and only alarms after 2 consecutive misses.
  • Tool Pack Block, is a self-taught sensor designed to pause the seal station firing if there are any misaligned packs or product over hanging the trays inside the base tool that could cause an issue in the seal cycle. The base will fire twice to try to complete the cycle and if its not possible it give an option to remove packs or seal the packs to continue.
  • PCP (Pack Crush Protection) on stepping belt to stop out of spec packs entering.
  • FSP (Film Snap Protection) with clever communication through servo motors on film feed and rewind controlling the film tension on feed.
  • Easy to follow guided film path for loading a new film reel.
  • Industrial remote access for remote diagnosis and program updates.
  • Interactive screen can control date coder through the heat sealer interface
  • RFID fob access restricts operator access to certain levels with the machine screen to prevent unauthorised changes to the functions of the machine.
  • DataConnect – online data capture solution.
  • SQL data logger
  • Optional servo driven, recipe managed automatic centralising tray guides.
