10 The grabber arms have the potential to give seal integrity problems if they are not exactly matched to the tray they are handling. Damage to a grabber arm could result in misaligned trays arriving at the sealing position and also could cause physical damage to the trays. This is particularly noticeable on foil trays which retain their damaged shape if not handled correctly. ) get the required energy to the sealing surfaces in a reduced time. Running machines ‘hot and fast’ is often seen as a good way of operating but this can often lead to other issues with the seals that are less desirable.
Sometimes the pack material is strong enough before sealing but after the heating and cooling the material strength can change and as a result the material can become weaker and more liable to fracture. 5 Material structures There are a large number of multilayer packaging materials. These are sometimes called laminates and they consist of different layers each of which brings its own characteristics to the packaging material. Some layers add strength and puncture resistance, other layers bring an oxygen barrier and, finally, some layers are put into the laminated material to impart sealing characteristics.
It is a very popular packaging format in the ready meals industry. There is a difference between this system and the previous one. In this system we have two materials of different thickness being joined together and this presents some issues when it comes to heating the seal area. In this system the seal area tends to be heated from only one side and this has an impact on the temperatures reached and the speed of operation. A cycle time on a machine to seal trays would be typically 4 seconds with a seal time of around 1 second.
