February 25, 2009 – WeighPack Systems Inc. has re-designed the XPdius brand of high-speed vertical form fill seal machine to include new features and benefits that greatly improves cleanability and the serviceability of vertical bagging technology.
The machine is ideal for packaging a variety of applications including snack foods, fresh and frozen produce, baked goods and more.
The new XPdius Elite has an open, accessible machine design that allows easy access to all operating functions of the machine. No cluster, no hard to reach places, no third hand necessary to assist in servicing the machine. Access all mechanics from four sides of the machine with no obstruction.
Featuring an easy-to-wind film roller assembly, film tracking that keeps film centered at all times and a film splicing table, the XPdius Elite has an quicker film changeover than the previous generation.
The film unwind is a motorized rubber pull roller on a direct drive shaft. This keeps the motors from hanging and resting on film, thus making film changeover more difficult as well as eliminating film slipping at high speed.
The clamp on forming shoulder requires no tools for positioning and placement. Changeover takes minutes.
The XPdius Elite uses two servo motor drives: one for the pull belt assembly and the other for the sealing jaws. The servos allows for higher speeds with repeatable results time and time again.
The auto retracting pull belt mechanism assures operator safety as does the jaw sensing device.
The hinged side control panel opens up to give a maintenance mechanic access to the inside mechanism of the machine.
The XPdius Elite includes an articulating panel for the HMI. The colour touch screen stores all operating functions and is easy to read, understand and operate.
The XPdius Elite can run different plastics and produce a variety of bag types including gusset, pillow bags and daisy chain pouches. Bag size ranges from two-inches to 12-inches wide to 18-inches long. The XPdius can operate at speeds up to 120 bags per minute
The XPdius Elite is prewired to interface with all types of filling machines. Simply plug and start.
