A machine for heat sealing various food products in modified atmosphere (MAP). The model SMART 400 or 500 is capable of sealing a wide range of trays and film, to conform to the requirements of the product.
The process starts by placing trays with the product in them into the cavities of the machine.
The cycle is completely automatic and is carried out by activating the 2 start buttons simultaneously which will cause the following sequence of operations:
- Insertion and closure of the tray cavities.
- Vacuum if required (optional).
- Gas flush if required (optional).
- Sealing of the film to the tray.
- Form cutting of the film.
- Trays return to starting position.
- Film advances for next cycle.
During the return of the cavities to the starting position the trays are lifted to facilitate the removal and reloading of the cavities.
Should more than one cavity size be needed, changing operations are fast and do not require the use of tools. A tray’s height is changed in one minute and a complete cavity change is carried out in less than 5 minutes.
The SMART conforms to International “CE” safety codes and conforms to ISO 9001 quality standards.
- Safety covers are provided to limit access to the cutting and sealing area during the cycle.
- The covers are equipped with safety switches.
- The two hand start requires the operator to hold the 2 start buttons one with each hand until the cavity draw is in place and the packaging cycle starts.
- The control circuits operate on 24 volts.
