Engineered to satisfy high-productivity requirements, the FAS SPrint Revolution presents a conveyor

An innovative Coordinated Motion Seal Flattener is coupled with a band sealing system to ensure high quality, airtight, 3/8” bag seals. The system operates in continuous, intermittent or batch modes, and cycles on pre-set parameters, or manually with a footswitch. This highly flexible design accommodates one or more operators or infeeds and a wide variety of products and bag sizes.
An integrated Allen-Bradley® control package, featuring Kinetix® Servo motors and drives, a
CompactLogix L45 PLC, and a large, 10” PanelView Plus HMI, is designed for ease of operation,
serviceability, integration, and overall system reliability. Programming of all components is done with a simple flash card. The AutoTouchTM Control Software displays real time productivity data and provides easy access to job storage, job recall and on-board system diagnostics.
Genuine SidePouch® bags are system-matched for optimum performance, and offer a variety of value-added features, such as reclosable zippers, resealable flaps and tamper-evident perforations.
Since the bags are pre-made, costly machine modifications are not needed to utilize these features. SidePouch bags are available in an assortment of materials that can be pre-printed in up to 10-colors with high-resolution graphics, text and bar codes for unique, attractive packaging with a competitive edge.
