The seal bar can be converted from a horizontal to vertical configuration to accommodate taller products. The XLR8 film folding system eliminates the need for multiple forming heads with its adjustable film former.  Its film path ensures equal transfer of grouped products onto the film without skewing the product configuration, making it useful for multipacks and irregular shaped products.  The unique film forming and feed method is said to use up to 2-in. less film than similar competitive machines.  In addition, the single wound film requirement increases the film capacity by more than 100% to improve productivity and reduce downtime caused by film change.  Multi-axis servo-driven operation offers precise electronic control for immediate and accurate sealing action, ensuring strong, consistent seals. The seal opening height is electronically programmed to vary with product height, maximizing output speeds for smaller products. The servo pouch length adjustment enables "on-the-fly" bag length changes without changing the flight spacing.  All adjustments are made from the operator side of the machine and product changeovers can be completed quickly and easily.
