Reliably tight packaging

An example of a food packaging application is one where you need to be able to handle materials of different thicknesses and levels of quality, while making sure that the tension is right for each material. If not, the goods might be damaged or the packaging may not be fully sealed. The utmost care must be taken, especially when feeding in the material – even tiny inaccuracies can lead to a loss of quality in production.
The solution is a dancer control system that integrates all the functions decentrally on the valve terminal MPA. This includes our terminal CPX, which you can use to easily incorporate pneumatic and electric control chains into any automation concept. Our easy-to-clean stainless-steel round cylinder CRDSNU ensures that your processes remain spotless.
