HM 8000 AS
Pouchmaking machine for the automatic production of flat and gusseted pouches for hospitals and the medical industry.
To deliver maximum flexibility and cost-effectiveness, hawo has developed a fully automatic pouchmaking machine, known as the hm 8000 AS/AS-V SealCut (V=validatable). This innovative machine combines a film reel dispenser and a heat sealer to automatically produced sterile goods pouches from standard reels in the required quantity and length. The material consumption is kept to a minimum, since the pouch length can be determined on a customised basis. With an output of up to 5.000 bags per hour and compact dimensions, this machine is at the top of its device class.
Operation and configuration are performed either via the integrated keypad or optionally using the innovative hawo IntelligentScan system. Different formulars can therefore be pre-programmed and changed with just a ‘scan’ (e.g. pouch length 30 cm / 12 in, sealing temperature 190 °C / 375 °F, sealing time 2 sec.). An optional label printer can be connected for labelling and documentation purposes. The devices can also be connected to existing batch documentation systems using standard RS 232, USB and Ethernet interfaces.
The following processing modes can be set:
- Seal only mode: Pre-produced pouches can be sealed on the fourth side after filling
- Cutting mode: Pouches are pre cut and not sealed.
- Production mode: Pouch sealed on 3 sides are produced completely automatically.
The high production rate, which results from up to 14 cycles per minute (over 800 cycles per hour), allows film pouches tobe produced cost-effectively. The extremely wide reel holder can support up to six reels of film, all of which can be used simultaneously. The machine can therefore produce up to 5.000 pouches an hour. In seal-only mode, the pre-made pouches are conveniently sealed after filling.hm 8000 SD – Optional sorting module
Another of the device’s advantages is its ability to sort the pouches. The hm 8000 AS /AS -V SealCut can sort the finished pouches by size, conveniently remove them, finish them, bag them or shrinkwrap them. You also have the option of adding an hm 8000 SD sorting module to the device.Ergonomics and maintenance
Work processes in the preparation of instruments should be as simple and comfortable as possible. That’s why the unit is aligned for the ideal utilization of the work area. Maintenance is reduced to a minimum; worn parts are easily replaceable. The low energy consumption of just 200 watts highlights the excellent economy of the hm 8000 AS /AS -V SealCut pouchmaking machine (hawo GreenTek).
