Sealing Systems

Foil heat-sealing equipment has developed from a basic and inflexible operation into a sophisticated technology where the entire process is adjustable. Fords build heat sealing systems using conduction or induction technology. In every case the sealing cycle is tested, quantified and validated for optimum performance, balancing process requirements with seal strength and peel forces.

Fords conduction and induction sealing machines are available in three formats according to the application: integrated rotary sealing turret, stand-alone rotary sealer and stand-alone inline sealer.

Integrated rotary sealing turret

Fords are proud to have formed strong partnerships with the worlds filling machine builders and rotary sealing turrets are supplied to our OEM partners for seamless integration into the filling machine bloc.

Fords individual conduction or induction sealheads can be specified and each turret is built to the required diameter and container pitch, with either Siemens or Allen Bradley electronic control. For more information please click to visit our Knowledge Base.

Stand-alone rotary sealer

A Fords stand-alone sealer is used in applications where it isn’t necessary or possible to integrate into a filler bloc and can be specified with individual conduction or induction heads.

Powder and volumetric fillers are not typically built as a combined bloc and Fords can close-couple with a stand-alone filler where required, to provide a unified customer sealing solution. For more information please click to visit our Knowledge Base.

Stand-alone inline sealer

The Fords Linear Belt Sealer is an inline induction sealing system that is particularly suited for integration into an existing production line as part of the trend towards capless sealing.

Due to its inline configuration, the Belt Sealer has a small footprint, can seal different foil cap diameters without change parts and is simple to install, operate and maintain. The Belt Sealer is designed for production speeds up to 300cpm and the machine can seal containers up to 105mm diameter. For more information please click to visit our Knowledge Base.
