Our Seal of Approval is in your 5-star pack

For your packaging line to be a true star you do not want to experience troubles with different grades of film, faulty sealing due to heat inconsistencies, incorrect temperature readings, defects in the production line, or a line that is simply not up to optimal speed. Omron offers a 5-star Perfect Sealing Solution for vertical and horizontal form fill and seal applications to get you ahead of the pack.

Omron's Perfect Sealing Solution is powered by AI Temperature Control, dedicated Temperature Sensors, and unique temperature consistency features like DPC. Special sensors are placed close to the seal jaw for the exact temperature even with thin films. Better temperature uniformity means higher quality and less waste. Our smart algorithms keep the sealing temperature constantly in-sync and the machine running optimally.

  • Fast Throughput

  • Film Flexibility

  • Filter PID-consistency

  • Failure Prevention

  • Food lifespan

Boost the speed, change the film, control the temperature, cut the scrap, and extend your product's lifetime with Omron's Perfect Sealing Solution!

Get introduced to our sealing solutions and download your 5-star pack:

  • PID whitepaper: learn how our 2-PID algorithm allows a machine to return to a set temperature up to 35% faster;
  • Sealing temperature technical whitepaper: get introduced to our technology called Direct Power Control (DPC). By knowing the start moment of a fast running machine like a flow wrapper it can “prepare” the seal-jaw temperature for the soon-coming-drop and pre-compensate for that. This allows the machine to run at full speed from the start;
  • Simulation of our Temperature uniformity filter Function Block. Our Function block improves sealing quality for large heating plates. See it in action yourself.

Minimize scrap with exact control of seal jaw temperature and AI

Reduce film and food waste on horizontal/vertical flow wrappers machines

Measure and control of the correct temperature

Locate the temperature sensor near the seal jaw surface for exact measurements using new dedicated sensors (E52-E) developed by us.

Keep the PID-performance highly consistent with AI

Our Automatic Filter Adjustment Function suppresses seal jaw surface temperature hunting delivering consistent high temperature control performance.

  • Ideal for thinner packaging materials, that are more sensitive to temperature changes

  • Less defects during sealing process

  • AI enables automatic temperature parameter adjustments which usually have been modified by skilled operators (ambient temperature, different plastic film material specs, etc.). It optimizes production quality, minimizes food and film waste, and reduces dependency on hard to find specialists.

Function Block for NX PLC

During operation, at each seal, the film absorbs heat from the seal jaw causing its temperature to drop. Standard PID control is able to bring the seal jaw to the right temperature before sealing, as long as the machine is in production. But what if production needs to start or stop?

Our Direct Power Control (DPC) Sysmac Function Block in NX PLC uses the machine start signal to ‘prepare’ the seal jaw temperature for the soon to come drop. It pre-compensates in-sync with the motion of the machine.

  • Higher machine throughput

  • Ready for high-tech packaging materials

  • No more manual PID value adjustments needed to minimize temperature hunting

Improve sealing quality for large heating plates

Temperature uniformity filter for perfect heat distribution

During forming and sealing processes temperature uniformity is critical when the heating plate is wider. This is caused by the temperature difference between the center and border of the heating plate. Driving multiple heaters independently causes heating interaction between each area of the metal plate. This means that perfect temperature uniformity is almost impossible to accomplish in tray sealers and thermo-form, fill and seal machines with large heating plates.

Temperature Uniformity Filter Function Block

Temperature variations are reduced by controlling temperatures based on the setpoints corrected for each separate heater using the setpoints and process values. 

Eliminate the damaging effect of hot spots by the Temperature Uniformity Filter Sysmac function block for our NX/NJ controllers.

  • Perfect heat distribution on 2D surface to manage more complex sealing profiles

  • Reduce initial PV ramp-up time or SP changes  to improve production capability

  • Minimize temperature drop caused by the loading the workpiece onto the heating area
