Ultrasonic technology has been introduced into Ishida Europe’s Atlas range of bagmakers. The new Atlas 203-USS offers significant reductions in film and energy consumption to deliver cost savings and sustainability benefits.

Ultrasonic technology uses sound pulses to agitate the molecules within the film. This causes them to vibrate and creates the heat required to seal the pack. Packs are sealed from the inside out to provide an overall stronger and more homogenous seal.

As well as consistently high quality seals, this approach requires less power, delivering energy savings of over 40% compared with standard heat-generated back and end seal operations.

At the same time, film use is reduced thanks to the sealing depth of the bags being reduced on the end seal from typically 10mm to just 3mm, and on the back seal from typically 13mm to just 6mm. This equates to a film saving of 11%.

Like the rest of the Atlas range, the Atlas 203-USS features a user-friendly, easy-to-maintain design and is said to be simple to set up and operate, claims Ishida.
