Versatile tray sealer
You've heard of one-stop shopping. But how about "one-stop sealing?"
Heat and Control says its new Ishida QX tray sealer can seal almost any shape or size tray. Moreover, it only takes a one-button command to change from products as different as deli meats, fresh and frozen meat and poultry, soups, vegetables and multi-compartment meals.
Officials say the Ishida QX accommodates up to five fillers. Moreover, a user-friendly touch screen control
stores all operating configurations for each filler and tray. Tooling also can be exchanged in
minutes using a portable cart. Ishida's Intelligent Tool function automatically recognizes
the correct tooling for each product preset for fast, accurate changeovers. In addition,
tool redundancy allows individual sealing heads to be switched off without reducing
Models are available for medium speed manual loading or fully automated sealing
of up to 200 trays per minute. MAP functions include gas flushing, vacuum-gassing, or
seal-only operation. Redundant cutting and heating tools assure minimal downtime.
To simplify sanitation, Ishida QX tray sealers are self-draining and have no
inaccessible areas, the company says. Conveyors and belts can be removed without using tools. Additional features are available to configure the tray sealer for liquid products,
printed film, checkweighing, metal detection and labeling. -- Heat and Control
