Packworld USA Introduces New Heat Sealer
Published: June 7th, 2013
Packworld USA will feature a new addition to its line of medical heat sealers with the PW3400 TOSS Touch Screen Precision Heat Sealer with VRC (variable resistance control) at EastPack in Philadelphia, June 18-20, Booth 1331.
The latest advances in heat sealer technology will be demonstrated by companies at EastPack, and at the co-located events MD&M East and ATX East.
Provided with touch screen HMI controls and standard alarms, the PW3400 uses TOSS technology for temperature control without the use of thermocouples. The unit’s features include recipe storage, multi-point calibration, resettable seal and machine count, data acquisition, graphical temperature display, VNC ready, alarm diagnostics, password protection, and multiple languages.

For sealing medical pouches, Tyvek, LDPE, polyethylene, foils, PTFE, and films, the PW3400 in addition features “Watchdog” monitoring, which checks temperature outside of the control system.
The unit’s menu-driven, single-touch process makes validation easier. An AUTOCAL function guarantees precision from band to band without having to position thermocouples or recertify equipment. The ISO 11607 and cGMP-compliant sealer is available in 16 in and 24 in, with 115V, and optional 230V.
Delta Industrial Services at ATX East (Booth 1501) will showcase its Delta Mod-Tech custom converting machine running a challenging polyurethane film. The patented system will feature a variety of processes including multiple rotary die cuts, tight registration, and lamination capabilities.
At MD&M East, SencorpWhite will be demonstrating a new PLC program for their deep draw chamber sealers at Booth 2425. The company says the program offers the highest flexibility available for developing processes optimized for each pouch design, residual oxygen level goal, and cycle time.
OK International at MD&M East (Booth 2529) will feature its latest Supersealer model, the Supersealer MBS Medical Band Sealer. Designed to meet ANSI/AAMI/ASTM/ISO 11607-2 and EN 868 standard requirements, the rotary band sealer continuously seals a wide range of medical packaging materials including plastic, Tyvek, coated Tyvek, Mylar, PET, paper, laminated materials, and metalized foil pouches/bags.
Heat sealer vendors will be further well represented at EastPack, with companies including PAC Machinery Group (Booth 919), Multivac, Inc. (Booth 1011), All Packaging Machinery Corp. ( Booth 1139), and Accu-Seal Corp. (Booth 1419.)
