New induction sealing technology eliminates most coil changeovers

in Sealers on March 22, 2017

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.
