Fully hygienic conveyor belt, dismantling without tools
Optimal accessibility for ease of cleaning

FCA 140

Flexibility and product versatility in the mid-size calibre range at up to 156 cycles per minute as well as shortest downtimes  distinguish the FCA 140. The automatic double-clipper closes collagen casings up to 58 mm, fibrous casings up to 90 mm and plastic casings up to 150 mm in diameter (depending on the material thickness). The FCA 140 R-ID processes the clip series M and L. Request Info

Request Info
The FCA 140 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 of the FCA 140 R-ID a warning is auto matically 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. Automation and operating comfort guarantee shortest possible set-up times, even higher operational safety and the maximum efficient machine use within the FCA class. Request Info
