Sandwich packing

PA have extended their eclipse range of tray sealing machinery and launched the eclipse 240, a fully electric high speed linear conveyor platen machine, ideal for sealing sandwich skillets.

Featuring PA’s Powerdrive™ technology, the eclipse 240 is a fully electric machine and operates without using any compressed air, therefore offering savings of up to 98% of the running costs of conventional pneumatically operated tray sealers. The seal force has been increased by 300% compared to pneumatic systems however PA’s novel technology allows the tool lift mechanism to be deactivated during the seal process therefore significantly reducing the energy usage.

The eclipse 240 is available to buy or rent with free engineering cover for parts and labour on one of PA’s competitive hire deals.
