SEALING SYSTEMS

Foil heat-sealing equipment has developed from a basic and inflexible operation into a sophisticated technology where the entire process is adjustable. Fords build heat sealing systems using conduction or induction technology. In every case the sealing cycle is tested, quantified and validated for optimum performance, balancing process requirements with seal strength and peel forces.

Fords conduction and induction sealing machines are available in three formats according to the application: integrated rotary sealing turret, stand-alone rotary sealer and stand-alone inline sealer.

CREATING FORDS CLOSURES

The Fords capping press converts reel-fed foil into caps in our customer’s production plant. Caps are punched & formed within a tool unit and delivered as a single stream of caps for application onto containers immediately after filling. Caps are applied onto containers in continuous motion, which can be rotary within the filler or inline after filling.

Fords specify and build machines meeting individual customer requirements to ensure an optimum balance of price and performance. The Fords range of capping presses includes entry-level models configured for low to medium speed and sophisticated high speed models capable of continuous production at speeds up to 700 per minute.
