The second version of the Amotek R168 can perform practically any packaging task involving unit goods. Products are bagged in all kinds of foil packs produced from rolls. There are no limits to how the products can be presented at the point of sale.

The AMOTEK R168 is a form-fill-seal packaging machine. Its versatile areas of application are made possible by a base machine which can be combined with various product feed systems. The base machine is designed to produce 11 types of foil bags. The sky is the limit here; as an example, even cardboard boxes with Euro perforation for suspended product presentation can be sealed in plastic foil. Reinforcements, handles, perforations, re-closable fasteners and other special solutions can be accommodated, as can simple standard packaging.

Professional foil processing is essential to perfect product presentation. To achieve this, photo cells in the machine recognise the print markings on the foils. The AMOTEK R168 also features precisely controllable servo-motors to position images pre-printed on the foils with micron-level accuracy. Consistently high packaging quality is ensured thanks to the aluminium sealing jaws coated with non-stick material and maintained at a constant temperature.

Feeds for all needs
For the ultimate in flexibility, the R168 packaging machine can be combined with a delta robot system, which means that the feed is not limited to certain product types. Individual stations are particularly well-suited for large products. Feed systems with subdivisions as well as special feed systems for rubbish and freezer bags – both main areas of application for the AMOTEK R168 – are also available. Multipacks can also be produced with this system.

The AMOTEK R168 packaging machine is ideal for entering the world of (semi-)automated packaging or as a fully automated system. Stations for manually loadedproducts are available. A direct connection to production systems can also be established, making the AMOTEK R168 able to take on new tasks.

The machine comes completely equipped with servo-motors, which makes quick format changeovers and outputs of up to 50 units per minute possible. Foil rolls from 70 to 600 mm in width can be used, depending on roll diameter. Materials include PE, PP and other half-folded foil materials processed from the roll (“semi-tubular foil”).
