The Relco FCS-N is an automatic rotary-indexing foil cutting and sealing machine designed for medium volume applications. Typical output is 50 sealed components per minute in the two sealing head configuration.
An induction seal can be made directly onto shallow container or other component without the conventional requirement of a cap and screw thread. The FCS-N can be configured to seal a variety of round, non-round, 3D or irregular shaped containers or closures made from plastics, glass, metal or ceramic.
Typical use of the N model is within the pharmaceutical/diagnostics or injection moulding industry where seal quality and consistency are important. The rotary table design allows for the incorporation of ancillary equipment into a free station e.g. seal inspection unit or gas flushing.
Where required, print register die cutting delivers precisely formed seals from reel fed material with printed artwork centralised on the foil. This feature enables the seal to become a more attractive part of the packaging with the possibility to add branding, instructions, ingredients or promotional messages.
Every FCS machine is designed and built to match individual customer needs. The FCS-N is typically equipped with one or two sealing heads. The standard control system is Mitsubishi but Allen Bradley can be provided if required.
Relco direct induction sealing technology provides perfect seal consistency, lower sealing time, reduced energy consumption and improved operator safety. The FCS-N machine uses the patented Relco ‘Punch&Seal’ single stroke ceramic foil cutting, locating and sealing tooling, well known within industry for delivering high quality seals and reliable operation.
