- Capless induction sealing
- Low volume production
- Integrated seal die cutter
- Tailored to application
The Relco FCS-1 is a Semi-Automatic foil cutting and sealing machine designed for low volume capless induction sealing applications. Manual functions are limited only to container placement and removal. It can deliver up to 15* sealed containers per minute.
A hermetic seal can be made directly onto any suitable container or other component (ie. vials, valves, closures) without the conventional requirement of a cap and screw thread. The FCS-1 can be configured to seal round, non-round, 3D or irregular shaped containers made from plastics, glass, metal or ceramic.
Typical use of the FCS-1 is within a low volume production environment where seal quality and consistency are important. This system is also frequently used in a product development or R&D context where small quantities of conforming product are needed prior to commencement of mass production.
FCS-1 units are custom built to suit each application and are typically configured with a single sealing head.
Despite its compact footprint, the FCS-1 is built on Punch&Seal platform which integrates a die cutter and uses sealing foil fed from reels. This eliminates need for pre-cut foils, allowing for the use of thinner structures and bringing substantial materials cost savings. You can seal container after container knowing that your material cost is as low as it is on larger automatic FCS sealing equipment.

When your pilot run is over and you need to step up production volumes, we have a comprehensive line-up of automatic capless induction sealers suited to a wide variety of applications and production lines. Our Punch&Seal units are suitable for integration into OEM filling/assembly equipment whilst the FCS range of machinery provides capless induction sealing capability to most conveyor fed linear indexing lines. Rotary and robotic sealers are also available for higher output lines.
