Continuous Motion Side/Top Sealers
In continuous motion wrappers, the incoming stream of products does not stop while the end seal is being made, thereby increasing throughput speed. Continuous motion wrappers are available in several styles.
During the time required to make the seal, the jaws close and the carriage moves forward with the package at the same speed. As the seal is completed, the seal jaws open and the carriage quickly returns to engage the next package. Box-motion refers to this rectangular-shaped path of the sealing head.
This is the ultimate in speed available in continuous-motion sealers. Patented by Texwrap, orbital head wrappers combine very fast, precise servo controls with an elliptical motion of the sealing head. This motion allows extremely fast speeds to be reached by drastically reducing the movement needed by the head in order to make the seal.
Texwrap side seal wrappers use our exclusive TGM2 side seal to insure consistent, high quality seals across a wide range of film types and gauges. The TGM2 is a very simple device yet offers outstanding control of the three elements necessary for a good seal – pressure, temperature and time. The TGM2 requires no air and has very few moving parts for ease of operation and minimal maintenance.
