Top reliability in little space!

The SMART machine, particularly recommended for small and medium-sized production processes, is an incredibly sturdy and reliable machine, thanks to its 15 mm Anticorodal mounted structure.

It combines the practicality of a small machine (it takes up 1 sq m) with the top thermosealing quality of a high-end automatic machine.

Indeed, SMART is fitted with the same mould mounted on automatic linear machines and that can be mounted on either series.

The great assembly precision allows the mould to operate without a gasket, thereby eliminating a part subject to wear.

The SMART machine can be fitted with a trolley entirely made with AISI 304 stainless steel that makes it very easy to move it around.

Cleaning and sanitization

All AMC machines are designed to be thoroughly washed and sanitized thanks to special solutions applied on the structural and optional components. Moreover, the electrical panel and pneumatic control unit have been insulated and separated to ensure full access for proper sanitization. The surfaces on which the products are conveyed are designed in such a way as to prevent liquids and product residue from accumulating.

Vacuum/MAT gas unit

The vacuum/MAT gas unit creates a vacuum inside the packaging and, at the same time, introduces gas in the percentage values desired by the customer. Therefore this option lets you change the properties of the atmosphere inside the container, thereby extending its preservation.

There are 40/100m3 vacuum pumps that let you increase the vacuum power and speed of the packaging cycles.

A display shows the DIGITAL VACUOSTAT that lets you set the vacuum value and the value at which the gas is introduced in the container. If for any kind of reason there is no more gas or if there are any discrepancies affecting the vacuum, the vacuostat will diagnose the problem and block the packaging process. This system ensures that each individual container has, always and in any case, an atmosphere that has been modified based on the features set by the customer.  

Parts of the SMART series

Structure

Frame structure entirely made with 15mm Anticorodal.

Digital Control

2. Control - The machine is managed via an integrated Siemens programmable logic with a digital electronic operator panel. A keyboard lets you set the speed values, sealing time, pause time between one cycle and the next, ON/OFF controls, manual tests and display alarms. The panel is very user-friendly.

Reel-holder

3. n. 01 Self-centring stainless steel reel-holder shaft with clutch: it lets you load the reel with just one step and always keep it at the centre of the production line. The clutch lets you constantly keep the film well stretched in order to ensure there are no creases and the packaging is perfectly sealed.

Product presence photocell

It lets you conduct an analytical check on the presence of the product. It there are one or several containers and/or products missing, it is possible to set two options:

a) they are ejected without sealing, without stopping the machine and  without wasting any film

b) it is possible to set the machine to stop if there is an empty container in order to fill it.

Centred printing photocell

Centred printing photocell. It lets you print the company's material on the film and always have it impressed in a central position. It is possible to save the position of the photocell via the touch-screen keyboard to make mould change procedures easier.

Drawing control

The film drawing control with motorised time or notch-based clutch rollers: the unit lets you limit film scrap to a minimum during production. It can be set based on two parameters: either based on the time or based on the notch impressed on the film. Therefore, it allows for a number of adjustments.

Mounted calender

Sealing calender made with AISI 304 stainless steel and Anticorodal, fitted with self-lubricating bushings and Anticorodal. The parts of the calender's structure are mounted. This is to ensure absolute precision between the parts during the assembly stage, thereby allowing for maximum linearity and reliability, as well as silence during the operation of the sealing bell. It is so precise that there is no need for gaskets to seal the container, which further reduces the number of components subject to normal wear.

Mould

All AMC machines are supplied as standard with a mould that comes with a 20 mm AISI 304 stainless steel counter-mould and accessories.  Under optimal conditions, it takes just 5 minutes to change the mould. Each mould cavity has its own resistor that controls its temperature and can be changed directly on the touch-screen panel.  The counter-mould does not have any gaskets (there are fitted only in the gas vacuum version), thanks to the fact that the mould and counter-mould fit very accurately.

Pneumatic system

Self-lubricating control/pneumatic unit with separate discharges. Using quality components is essential to achieving top reliability for pneumatic machines, especially when operating environmental conditions are extreme, as in dairies. This is why we only choose leading global suppliers of pneumatic systems. The pneumatic system is self-lubricating and reduces the need for maintenance to a minimum.

Vacuum/MAT gas

The vacuum/MAT gas creates a vacuum inside the packaging and, at the same time, introduces gas in the percentage values desired by the customer.
