For applications where a low-cost machine is required for intermittent use, the FT12 clipping machine is the ideal choice.
Using metal fastening clips supplied for easy loading into the clip magazines, the FT12 is available for manual foot-operation or for operation by compressed air.
Choice of net is dependent on the application but the FT12 operates with either extruded net, usually supplied on continuous reels for manual transfer onto the net tube, or with sleeves of knitted net for heavier duty applications. There is a wide range of net tube and hopper sizes available according to the size and type of product to be packed and these are readily interchangeable.
The FT12 is a flexible machine and is particularly suitable for anyone considering low-volume net packing for the first time. It is also suitable for use in damp or wet conditions such as the shellfish industry.
The Easy-Pak is an ideal clipping machine for any duty or application where steady and continuous throughput of packs is required with the minimum of effort.
Using a cassette of clipping wire from which the clips are formed, the Easy-Pak machine is suitable for most extruded and knitted nets. The operator gathers the net into the clipping head and this triggers the machine to apply two clips and cut the net between them.
The machine can also be supplied with an applicator for 160mm pre-printed wineglass labels and is available with 100mm or 150mm diameter net tubes as standard.
Typical applications for the Easy-Pak machine include the packing of onions and garlic in “in-line” packs, bulk packing of most fruit and vegetables, cheese, confectionery and industrial products such as flexible hoses.
