Why clip with TSCA 160?

7 reasons

01 Save money
The automatic sealing machines of the TSA/TSCA series have been proven a hundred times in the market. The machines achieve in proven Poly-clip quality a significant cost reduction by using horizontally sealed flat film instead of shirred casings.

02 Save staff
Profit from continuous production with rolls of film up to 3,000 m, the operator alone can carry out all necessary work of this line.

03 Product range
All commonly used films, coated or uncoated, as well as laminates up to 160 mm in diameter can be processed in proven Poly-clip quality. That gives you full flexibility for a wide range.

04 Minimises meat loss
The integrated burst control with automatic machine stop ensures lowest possible meat loss in high speed applications.

05 Very high flexibility
Recipe Management with up to 1,000 places ensures that all product parameters are set automatically. You can search, sort and group recipes.

06 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.

07 Reduced maintenance costs
The automatic sealing/clipping machine offers automatic central lubrication. You can rely on the accomplishment of this important task.

The TSCA consists of a synchronised automatic sealing machine and double-clipper. This provides a continuous production line when a stuffer is used at the front end. Both production processes are operator-friendly and are easily programmable via the central SAFETY TOUCH panel. 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. The unit is operated via six membrane keys on the control  panel. The film roll is placed on a self-tensioning roll carrier. Uniform inlet tension of the film is achieved by the roller guide system. The forming shoulder forms the flat film around the stuffing horn into an open tube. The tube is then sealed lengthways with minimal overlap by heat sealing. For continuous production an integrated control circuit ensures that the automatic clipper always has sufficient shirred film available.
