General data

Description of the seam
If there are several seams in the machine, you can enter a brief description here to distinguish between them. For exampe "horizontal" or "vertical". After entering the data for the first seam, you can add another seam on page 5.
In a VFFS machine for example: Horizontal seam
General

If retrofitting: Sealing system as yet

Isolation between bar and heatseal element
Thin
Thick
Thin isolation: for example teflon cover strip. Thick isolation: for example silicone
Mode of operation
Impulse heat
Continuous heat
Impulse heat with preheat
Temperatures
max sealing temperature (Tsealing) °C
if used: max preheat temperature (Tpreheat)
°C
ambient temperature (Tambient)
°C
For standard applications, we calculate with the standard temperature range of the controller, which is 300 °C. The ambient temperature is only important if it is not close to room temperature.
Cycle times
max. cycles/min
or cycle time (tcycle) s
max. heating time (tsealing) s
maximum time available for jaws closed (tclosed) s
For the calculation, we need the number of sealing cycles. When several seams are made in one machine cyle, this number differs from the machine cycles. If sealing samples are made, we need to know how much time will be available to keep the sealing jaws closed.

Layers
Gusset
Please enter the number of layers without gusset. If there may be uncontrolled wrinkles, please try to estimate how many layers you have (for example: 2..6)
Product to be packed
It is helpful for us to know if the product is solid or liquid, aggressive or volatile, for example.
Machine cleaning
For example daily celaning with water. This helps to choose the right type of sealing tools.
Line voltage
Available V
Frequency Hz
If there are several voltages available, please fill in all available voltages. For example 230/400
For the CIRUS controllers, 400V supply is required. When the available supply is different, adaptive transformers have to be used.


Heatseal element

Heatseal element shape*
[tapered band] Tapered band[t-profile] T-profile
[flat band] Flat band[cutting wire] Cutting wire
[reflex band] Reflex band[oval wire] Oval wire
[beaded band] Beaded band[half round] Half round
TriangleDouble seal band
Not decided yetSpecial shape
The standard shape for flat seals is the tapered band. For cut-and-seal with a narrow seam, cutting wire is used normally. For cut-and-seal with wider seams, beaded band is used normally. Depending on the application, other shapes may be better. To find out what type of heatseal band is suitable for your application, we can make sample seals with your film for you.
