Heavy-Duty, High-Speed Vertical Form and Seal Machine

February 11, 2013

The new XPdius i-130 vertical form and seal machine is designed to reduce cost of ownership. The i-130 has many tool-less features that save time when loading film, replacing pull belts, and completing bag width changeovers. The design allows for complete accessibility to the mechanics of the machine. The front, back, and inside of the frame can be accessed easily and comfortably. The XPdius i-130 can run 125 bags per minute, while producing a 4¼-in.-long bag. Two Panasonic servo motors and drives are used on the pull belt assembly and horizontal seal jaws. These drives assure total control over acceleration, deceleration, and positioning. The horizontal seal jaw speed is optimized as it is fully adjustable to travel in and out from as little as 1 to 6½ in. The stroke opening of the seal jaws is a storable parameter on the PLC for quick recall when running a large range of bag thicknesses. The XPdius i-130 is capable of handling a bag width as little as 2½ to 13 in. wide. The bag length can vary from 2 to 18 in.
