Why clip with FCA 140?

5 reasons

01 Casing-friendly linear separator
Poly-clip System offers this casing-friendly vertical linear separator. Your advantages: minimises bursts, no interruptions and no product loss.

02 Error prevention
This double-clipper in the series benefits from modern technology and medium automation, and thus from very simple error prevention. The individual parameters of the system including clipping machine, clips and die (RFID) are monitored ensuring smooth production.

03 Hygienic conveyor belts
Our hygienic belts in proven Poly-clip quality are inductively driven and can be dismantled without tools in seconds for a thorough cleaning.

04 Reduced maintenance costs
The automatic clipper offers the automatic central lubrication. You can rely on the accomplishment of this important task.

05 Safety for the operator
This clipping machine features an optimal safety casing brake with hand guard in proven Poly-clip quality. Operation without the casing brake is impossible. Your advantage: operator safety is protected, and the machine can produce damage-free.

Request Info

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.
