High-speed XPdius vertical form and seal machine from Weighpack is re-designed for ease of maintenance and serviceability.

The XPdius i-130 vertical form and seal machine is designed and manufactured by WeighPack Systems to reduce cost of ownership. The XPdius has many tool-less features that saves a lot of time when loading film, replacing pull belts and doing bag width changeovers.  The design allows for complete accessibility to the mechanics of the machine. Access the front, back and inside of the frame easily and comfortably.

Capable of running 130 bags per minute while producing a 4.25 inches long bag, the XPdius i-130 is equipped with two Panasonic servo motors and drives. These drives assure total control over acceleration, deceleration and positioning.

Standard features include a cantilevered air film shaft that eliminates side chucks to hold film in place. Reload time of new rolls of plastics is extremely fast compared to the conventional film shafts that are supported on both sides using side chucks to hold the core in place. A splicing table with film clamping is a standard feature. This feature eliminates the film running out and requiring threading of the film through the rollers.

Available with automated film tracking, the XPdius is able to maintain a lateral position of improperly wound film. The complete film carriage will move left to right with an AC motor gear box and a fine pitch threaded rod for minute adjustments.

The HMI (human-machine interface) color touch screen is programmed to operate every possible function and feature. Every package or product is stored in the memory for easy recall and setup. The program includes several sequences of operations that allows for a proper relationship between the bagger, the filler and the product. The HMI program is designed for user friendliness.

Other optional extras available include gas flushing, polyethylene seal assembly, hole punch, vibratory shake down settling device, bag squeezers to reduce air in head space, and provisions for code dating/printing devices.
