The QX-1100 Flex tray sealers include a split dual-lane model that takes up 50 percent less floor space than two single-lane machines. The sealers can deliver up to 15 cycles per minute, and each lane can operate independently with different trays and speeds. Operators use automatic and quick-release features to change trays, film and sealing tools. No-tools removal of belts and conveyors allows fast, comprehensive washdowns and hygienic operation. The film reel is double the normal size for longer production runs, and individual sealing heads automatically disable in the event of knife or heater issues, while the tray feed automatically adjusts to keep production running.
