An Allen-Bradley PLC allows control of functions such as cross-seal jaw pressure for various films and thicknesses. Automatic horizontal cross-seal jaw alignment is standard. A touch screen provides production information and fault display. Changeovers require no tools and can be accomplished quickly.
