The machine includes 4 open product load stations, with a 12-in. x 16-in. seal area. Other features of the U8 are “quick install” feeder stations for inserts, blisters and cards. The U8 has an independent electro-mechanical drive system as well as a servo driven turntable. The machine has full PLC control and a user-friendly operator interface panel. Interlocked door panels on the U8 base allow for quick access to the drive system allowing quick reconfiguration of the machine in the field. Tooling accessories include 8 product carrier nests, a blister and card magazine, a blister plug rack and profiled seal die. Quick change tooling and additional feeders are also available as options.
