Continuous motion these days is a generic term that is used for various different motion technologies in the packaging industry. Continuous motion is often praised for it high speed capabilities but also for its prevention of product breakage. In the market we see four different continuous motion technologies referred to as Roto-motion, Box-motion, D-motion and Free Form D-motion.
UVA offers Free Form D-motion UVA Packaging exclusively offers Free Form D-Motion with Automatic Motion Algorithm Control AMAC®. With Free Form D-motion the movement of the cross seal jaws is optimised in three dimensions considering former size and film type. The benefits of AMAC is that the machine always moves smooth and gentle which results in best in class bag quality at any speed.
Intermittent motion is a traditional technology and most used in the market today. In many applications intermittent motion is the preferred option for its simplicity and versatility and advanced packaging capabilities. For many applications the speeds (up to 120 bags/min.) with intermittent motions are sufficient.
UVA Packaging offers Intermittent Motion machine with extreme versatility Using servo technology on intermittent packaging machine offers clear benefits for the industry. Not only is UVA Packaging capable to reach the highest possible intermittent speeds in the market, but the VFFS machines of UVA Packaging are also capable to apply various recloseable options and many other advanced packaging options like production of different bag styles and film types all on one machine.
Creative thinking and cutting edge servo technology resulted in a reliable and user-friendly splicer, with a minimum footprint. The UVA-AUTOSPLICER is designed to produce continuous while preparing the second roll of film on by position.
