Algus 8SR and 8SR OS

The Algus 8SR and 8SR OS Sealing Machine is designed to meet the demanding seal specifications of difficult to seal packages. The 8SR is a production-based heat seal machine for large production runs. The seal area makes this machine ideal for large packages and multiple-up packaging.

The Algus 8SR and 8SR OS comes with a choice of three automatic eject system options: Packages are lifted from the nesting trays and either:

1) Deposited on customer conveyor blister-up from eject slide (standard); or

2) Lift and transfer, blister-down to take off conveyor or table (transfer eject); or 3) pick and transfer blister-up orientated on customer conveyor (hand-off eject).

Additional automatic feeders can be added at time of ordering which will enable the automatic loading of a second card for captive blister packs or specialised loading tooling to load customer’s product automatically.
