The FCA 160/120 Automatic Double-Clipper 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 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. In case of deviations from the recipe parameters saved in SAFETY TOUCH a warning is automatically displayed. 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 machine’s operational status as well an analysis of filling and clipping times. A USB port for data import and export comes as standard. The automated operation offers the greatest product safety and maximum efficiency. Request Info
