Why clip with FCA 90?

5 reasons

01 Moulded products
No other in our FCA-class allows air-free slack filling up to 300 mm total spreading. Your advantage is maximum flexibility in the caliber range AND in the product form.

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

03 Help towards self-help
The operating manual where it is needed – when it's needed: in the SAFETY TOUCH. Automatic clipping machines in proven Poly-clip quality with PC 200 control have the operating manual on board, where it can also be easily updated.

04 Operator friendliness
Recipe Management with up to 1,000 places ensures that all product parameters are set automatically. You can search, sort and group recipes.

05 High productivity
No other manufacturer of automatic clipping machines offers you an IFC interface for communication between Handtmann filler and the double-clipper. This allows you product safety and additional increases of up to 10 %.

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 continuous process monitoring is offered by the high degree of automation.
