APM Model VCBS Continuous Band Sealer

Made in the USAMade in the USA

The APM VCBS 1/8 Continuous Band Sealer is a vertical, rotary band sealing system for plastic bags or pouches. The VCBS 1/8 with its synchronized lower conveyor and synchronized dual motors will seal and trim Tyvek, foil, polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), nylon, co-extrusion polylaminates and poly-coated paper materials. The VCBS 1/8 has a 5” long heating zone and 5” long cooling zone for greater flexibility in sealing of difficult materials. With special heavy-duty, wear-resistant laminated Teflon® bands and PID digital temperature controller, the VCBS 1/8 can maintain a consistent heat up to 5000F. Configurable to produce seals 1/8", 1/4” or 3/8” wide, the VCBS 1/8 can seal at speeds up to 720 inches per minute (60 fpm)1.
