Function and operation

  • The automatic double clipping machine is connected mechanically and synchronized electrically to a filling machine. The portions are fed in precisely to the nearest gram and closed by a clip.
  • The PC control allows a very fast and accurate signal processing. On the SAFETY TOUCH display the diagnostic system provides a direct and clear indication of the clipping machine’s operational status as well an analysis of filling and clipping times.
  • Deviations from the recipe parameters saved in SAFETY TOUCH are monitored.
  • The operator is intuitively guided through the flat menu structure of the SAFETY TOUCH by means of self-explaining pictograms. Operator, set-up and service levels are kept clearly separated and are password protected.
  • A high degree of process monitoring is offered by the FCA’s automation.
