New induction sealing technology eliminates most coil changeovers

New induction sealing technology eliminates most coil changeovers
New inFinity induction sealing coil is almost universal in its ability to handle just about any container.

Billed as a “game-changing development” in terms of uptime and productivity, the new inFinity tunnel induction sealing coil can handle nearly all types of containers without the typical time-consuming coil changeover.

According to manufacturer ITW Pillar Technologies, the proprietary technology has the built-in capability to seal 100% of all tunnel coil applications (including all double-neck bottles) and 80% of all induction cap sealing applications. Additionally, the inFinity coil has a tool-less design, offering either knob or motorized adjustment.

Rory Wolf, business unit manager, ITW Pillar Technologies, explains: “This is a two-coil system—meaning there are two different size inFinity coils that cover the waterfront in terms of being able to seal all container types/shapes/styles required of these tunnel-type coils without having to change out the coil. Previously, and with other competitor products, there is typically an individual coil required for each SKU [stock-keeping unit], and which must be removed by a tool.”

Users can get the inFinity coils on Pillar’s compact iFoiler induction sealing system; the new coils cannot be retrofit onto any other existing systems.
