ZED INDUSTRIES INTRODUCES NEW PARTIAL VACUUM TRAY SEALER

Zed Industries introduces its NEW “Partial Vacuum” Shuttle Tray Sealer, Model 15-DLX-PV.

This newest option in Zed’s full line of FDA/Medical Lid sealers provides a “reduced atmosphere”, through a partial vacuum prior to sealing, (-PV). (Note: gas purge/flush, full vacuum packaging and oxygen “FREE” environments are available as Zed’s “MAP” series, Modified Atmosphere Packaging systems).

Visual verifiable seal quality is easily identified by the tell-tail concave lid profile and confirmed to the user by the audible air in-rush as packages are opened.

Full production speeds are achievable with cycle times of just a few seconds.

Partial vacuum or balance to atmospheric sealing is accomplished through on-board regulation.

A self contained variable vacuum pumping system is supplied with both volumetric and total vacuum controls.

The system comes standard with easy calibration analog controls, with optional full PLC, operator HMI, and memory job parameter storage available.

Full networking or modem communication is also available as well as end of shift reporting capabilities.

Optional on-board vision completes the system to fully document product loading, bath/lot documentation, as well as quality reporting throughout the job run.

This system and options is now available on all of the Zed line of Medical and Food Grade shuttle sealers, as well as Zed’s rotary and in-line high volume packaging lines. This system is ideal for Medical, Dental and Food barrier application for use with or without Oxygen Scavenger packaging materials.

Z-812-P Table-Top Clamshell Sealer

The model Z-812-P is an automatic shuttle type heat sealer designed to seal clamshell blisters for low to medium volume production requirements. Locating pins on the shuttle table allow for the use of quick-change seal tools, which may be manufactured from wood, plastic or aluminum; depending upon application requirements. These systems are typically used for clamshell packs, but can also be used for traditional blister pack applications utilizing Tyvek, foil, thin plastic, laminated film stock, etc. Available options include: digital timer and temperature controller, non-stick, scratch resistant seal plate, a medical sealing system, and others.

Machine Features:
· Economically priced
· Compact design
· Energy efficient
· Also seals traditional blisters

15-RS-LD Series Heat Sealers with Leak Detection – Rotary Blister & Test

This system incorporates modifications to a Zed 15-RS rotary sealer, adding an upper platen drive mechanism that applies vacuum to product samples for evaluation of vacuum decay or loss. The station compares known “good packages” with a standard vacuum loss through transmittance across the “Tyvek” to a variation of greater loss due to a failure in the seal area itself. This base option will include an upgraded vacuum system and surge tank along with individual sensor systems for monitoring drops in vacuum related in inches of mercury and millibars. System will include an upgrade of the rotary sealer itself to include: a PLC, programmable controller, and operator interface screen as well as job memory log for retaining the parameters on various package designs.

Machine Features:
· New Precision Indexing Drive
· Various sizes
· Quick-change tooling

ZED INDUSTRIES, INC., INTRODUCES NEW LOW OXYGEN TRAY SEALER

Zed Industries introduces its new “Low Oxygen” Shuttle Tray Sealer, Model Z-Med-MAP. This newest option in Zed’s full line of medical lid sealers provides a “Modified Atmosphere” sealing, including: gas purge/flush, full vacuum packaging and oxygen “Free” environments.

Theoretical oxygen values of less than 0.1% (one-tenth of one percent), are achievable with cycle times of just a few seconds. The system is supplied complete with incoming connections for Nitrogen or other purge/flood gas media.

A self contained positive displacement pumping system supplies vacuum capacities, while a unique vacuum oscillation circuit reduces the package oxygen content. Cycle options provide for theoretical oxygen values of 1.25% to below 0.100% O2 respectively. Partial vacuum or balance atmospheric sealing is accomplished through on-board regulation.

The system comes complete with full PLC controls, easy to utilize HMI and job memory parameter storage. Full networking or modem communication is available, as well as end of shift capabilities.

Optional on-board vision completes the system to fully document product loading, batch/lot documentation, as well as quality reporting throughout the job run.

This system is ideal for barrier applications where oxygen scavenger materials are prohibitive.

The MAP design and its options is now available on all of the Zed line of medical and food grade shuttle sealers, as well as Zed’s rotary and in-line high volume packaging lines.
