ADM Packaging Technology ADM-W400 washdown VFFS machine
The ADM-W400 vertical fill, form and seal (VFFS) machine has been designed as a full-featured, high-specification machine suitable for wet and dusty environments.
The machine can tackle common issues such as tracking and belt slip. Its vacuum pull-down belts provide tracking and grip on the film, while the edge tracking feature provides control to form the bag. Able to change film and former size without extraneous tools, the machine has a vertical seal and back support, commonly missed with former changeover leading to damage to the former.
This VFFS machine has a maximum speed of 80 bags/min and is suitable for cheese, poultry, frozen foods, salads and wet fill. The machine uses an Allen Bradley control system including PLC, 10″ HMI and Servos. The machine uses an EtherNet/IP system for quick troubleshooting, useful in rural installation. ADM can also install a modem for remote access for fast program updates.
The fully enclosed stainless steel engine room and control cabinet prevents foreign objects from entering the control system. The machine also protects against condensation occurring inside the control cabinet in cold or humid environments.
Optional end sealing units include impulse sealing for polyethylene film and ultrasonic sealing for products such as cheese and salads. The machine features safety guarding to AS4024 and uses SICK safety sensors, providing a CAT3 safety rating. It uses components from suppliers such as, Allen Bradley, SICK, SEW, Omron and SMC.
Other optional features include gas flush for MAP, gusset system, liquid fill squeeze roller, antistatic device, zip applicator, hole punch, 5″ thermal transfer printer and mechanical spreaders.
