This eliminates all oil-filled gears in the motor making the VPL-400 maintenance and wear and tear free. Uptime increases to 99%. Due to improved freely programmable sealing time handling of thinner films with high speeds is possible. Sealing pressure of up to 8 N is continuously programmable versus at intervals as in previous machine versions. Cooling and sealing time and pressure are also adjustable.
