We present here a selection of the questions that have been put to us.
If you like to ask your own question, then do so here (ext link).
HAVE YOU ANY 2’ND HAND MACHINES FOR SALE?
There is almost never a FAS machine which comes as a trade in to us. Instead old clients and producers send us 15-20 year old units for overhaul, where we mount a new servo retrofit and mechanical parts in the original frame. This is a good sign of quality we believe.
WHAT IS IN-LINE?
It´s what we call a production where the machines are connected and follow directly the extrusion. Benfits are that you can use a less sophisticated extruder as the warm film is easier to seal and fold.
CAN YOU RUN OFF-LINE?
Yes, FAS machines can run both in and off-line.
CAN YOU PRODUCE DRAW-TAPE BAGS?
Yes, by adding a draw-tape module and a double V-folder to a standard line we can produce draw-tape bags.
WHAT WIDTH OF BAGS CAN BE CONVERTED?
We have machines from 900-1500mm width but the smallest we can produce must be down to 80-100mm. We then use a custom made sealing bar to adjust the sealing width in the machine. Also the perforation can be variable in a 900mm unit down to 300mm as a minimum.
HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BAG LENGTH?
All FAS units are servo driven which enable us to change bag length with just setting new parameters into the operating panel and then enter and the bag length will change in the next cycle.
WHICH THICKNESS OF MATERIAL CAN FAS CONVERT?
General we are able to perforate and seal from 10 microns up to 100 microns single layer, but as always this is depending on the material to be produced.
WHAT KIND OF MATERIAL CAN BE CONVERTED ON FAS MACHINES?
Our machines are flexible and can in the same perforation and sealing unit convert all from LL, LD, MD, HD and all different kinds of blends with recycled material up to 100% recycled material.
