Vertical f/f/s machine for food and nonfood applications
The Butler(TM) 3 is a new vertical form/fill/seal machine from UVA-Butler (Richmond, VA) suited for frozen foods, cereal, pasta, pet food, powders and granulates.
It produces flat-bottom- pillow- or gusseted pillow-style bags at speeds to 140/min using either supported or unsupported film. Bags can vary in size from 21/2" x 21/2" to 15.5" x 24". 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.
