Jun 3, 2014

ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. — Ossid, powered by ProMach, introduces the 8000S, the company’s state-of-the-art thermo form-fill-seal machine for medium to high production environments. This horizontally oriented machine can produce a host of different package types for utmost flexibility, including flexible, foil-foil,  semi-rigid, rigid, ambient, vacuum, modified atmosphere, and reclosable. As the video on the 8000S webpage shows, the unit delivers up to 20 cycles per minute and was designed to provide exceptional value in terms of price and performance.

Also contributing to its flexibility, the 8000S can run a wide range of packaging materials and can accommodate three and six-inch cores for the dual supply mandrels. Servo control for precise, repeatable motion actuation is featured on the drive chain and forming and sealing presses. The 8000S has maximum web width of 20 inches and index length of 18, which contributes to its medium to high production rating. The 8000S is designed for maximum hygiene.

The dual unwind stand comes standard with automatic edge guide for the bottom web, which ensures smooth operation and low operator involvement. The control system is based on the Allen-Bradley PLCs. The HMI is loaded with features designed to make changeover fast and accurate, provide management with relevant production information, and ensure that maintenance personnel have the information they need for trouble shooting and ongoing support. Ossid also provides customers with change parts kits that lower inventory costs and ensure highest uptime. Stainless steel construction provides for durability in harsh environments.
