New E-seal Technology Widens Proseal Range
Heat sealing specialist Proseal is further extending its range of high performance tray sealers with the launch of a high force electric heat seal model particularly appropriate for the meat industry.
The Proseal GT2X-Twin E-seal® is a twin lane high speed, tray sealer, capable of 120 trays per minute, that combines Proseal’s new E-seal® electric sealing technology with the many proven functional and reliability benefits of Proseal equipment.
E-seal® technology provides an energy efficient sealing system that delivers a high-precision seal with an extremely strong sealing force, ensuring every seal offers the tightness and reliability to meet the stringent quality requirements of the fresh food retail sector. At the same time, retaining pneumatic functions means the machine can also offer additional benefits such as date coding of pre-printed film.
The GT2X-Twin E-seal® features a servo-driven infeed conveyor and high accuracy tray positioning system for high throughput speeds. An intelligent film feed system ensures full control of the sealing operation for excellent seal quality, with easy film threading and dynamic control of the movement of the film throughout the film feed cycle in order to maintain constant tension and avoid film snapping.
The machine offers a rugged construction manufactured to food industry approved hygiene standards with full wash-down protection. It retains Proseal’s pioneering advanced lightweight and high strength ‘Auto Tool’ connection system, which enables tool changes to be carried out in around five minutes. Downtime is also minimised by the use of quick-change conveyor belts, and an auto-lock film reel holder. The machine’s practical design is enhanced by situating the electrical controls above the sealing area, which also allows for safe access.
The new model incorporates a user-friendly menu-driven control panel for ease of set up and operation, which can be remotely accessed and controlled. The screen also provides detailed production data, production monitoring and full diagnostics. Full double-sided operation is provided by a swing arm control interface for enhanced accessibility.
E-seal® technology will also be available across the entire Proseal range of tray sealers.
“E-seal® is an important addition to the Proseal equipment portfolio, giving us even greater flexibility in our ability to tailor our machines to the precise requirements of individual customers,” comments Tony Burgess, Control Systems Manager.
