The satisfactory development, manufacture, conversion, and application of flexible packaging films necessitates the implementation of precise methods of quality control systems.
The HL-1 has been developed to precisely control the parameters essential in determining the heat seal threshold of low-pressure heat sealing material for applications where low-pressure sealing is required, often associated with the product being packaged such as the Tobacco or chocolate confectionery Industries.
The HL-1 has a floating top jaw which has a given seal area and weighs the exact amount to produce the correct pressure needed according to the force per unit area calculation. The seal alignment is easily achieved because of the floating top jaw.
Especially suited for flexible packaging materials used in the Tobacco or Confectionery industry, the HL-1 features accurate control of temperature, pressure and dwell time of a standard surface area sealing jaw.
