Sunday 4 July 2004 18:28 CET | News

KÃâ€RA-PACKMAT has released CardSeal500, a continuously operating high speed card wrapping machine with ultrasonic 4-side sealing as well as VMC 100S, the new version of the bestseller VMC 100.
A decisive innovation in the wrapping machine for telephone cards and similar flat products within 85 x 54 mm (ISO standard) is that it runs continuously. While in the previous machines of the same manufacturer the film comes briefly to a standstill during sealing (operation in cycles), with the CardSeal300 and the CardSeal500 the film and cards are continuously on the move. As a result, the high speed processing rate of up to 500 products (card + insert) per minute is achieved. To realize the continuous run, sealing is carried out ultrasonically. Likewise a new technology with vital advantages for the processing speed and tamper resistance. In developing the machine, the company attached great importance to a solid machine design with high quality standards, low maintenance, a minimum idle time and a high packing quality. As with KÖRA-PACKMAT’s other wrapping machines, a film pack is produced which is distinguished by small film projections. This tight package with the nice appearance is a crucial argument with a view to products sold in the film. In addition, the cover is given a sealing seam assuring the purchaser of the card that the pack is in the original condition. This sealing seam can even be customized. The sequence in the machine was also modified slightly in comparison to machines with thermal sealing. The film is wound off the reel in center-folded form and is first prepared in the ultrasonic sealing unit. Pouches are formed which are closed on three sides by the sealing seam and are separated from one another by a tear-off perforation. The optional possible tear-open perforation is likewise applied already here. The products can be wrapped as single or linked bag chains, the chains are among 5-25 pieces. The cards previously singled out by a feeder run parallel to the film tube and are continuously inserted in the pouches over a lengthy path of travel. The sealing seam on the side of insertion follows, the rest of the film being extracted. The finished chain of pouches is subdivided by a separator into the desired number of cards per chain and stacked. Using additional components, leaflets can be fed and included in the pack in addition to the card itself. What is more, the finished chains of pouches and stacked single cards can be repacked in several ways such as overwrapping, banding, shrinking, carton box packing. Additionally printing and labeling devices can be used. Further more the customers can choose between the standard thermal sealing and the new security sealing in order to meet the market’s requirements. The new security seal is supplement to the existing advantages like the nice an tight packages and low film material consumption so that the customer will get the maximum of security at low investment costs. Over the last years, the VMC 100 Card Wrapping machine has become a bestseller all around the world and it is the ultimate reference for high quality packaging of telephone or similar cards. Now that the sealing system of the VMC 100 has been improved, it will be possible to create a tamper resistant wrapping with a special designed security seal similar to the one that is created on the Card Seal300 and on CardSeal500. This version is called VMC 100S and it has been sold many times since its introduction beginning of 2003. Further all existing VMC 100 wrapping machines can now be upgraded to a version, which creates a security sealing around the nice and tight package. Both VMC 100 and CardSeal can be turned into complete wrapping lines, with the integration of additional equipment such as cameras, overwrapping and labeling units.
