Sigpack HCUL

Sigpack HCUL

Horizontal Flow Wrapper for hermetic packaging

using Ultrasonic Sealing Technology for length and cross seal

  • Overview


    Robust, fully servo-driven, permanently lubricated machine, with cast metal housing; specifically designed for multi-shift operation. Complete separation between components to be packaged and packaging materials from HCUL’s drive elements provides easy access from both sides of the machine. It enables: high availability during production, easy maintenance during down time

    The machine is available in both, left and right hand versions, and its modular design makes it easily adaptable to client's specific requirements.

    Package style

    Hermetically sealed flow packs. Cross-seam: fluted, with linear, zigzag or custom cut. Length-seam: fluted.
    Options for:MAP (modified atmosphere), On-line printing and/or labeling, Desiccant and/or O2 scavenger placement, Bottom cardboard or plastic tray holder.
    Utilizing Sigpack HCx platform that already addresses Child-resistant and Senior-friendly market needs.

    Packaging material

    Ultrasonic Sealing technology works well with a large range of available films: Mono-structure or complex laminated structures, Pre-printed or with only the registration mark


    The HMI panel on the Sigpack HCUL is mounted on a swivel arm and is horizontally adjustable. Parameter entry buttons, error messages, production statistics, user management and messaging for corrective actions are all displayed on the HMI. For general operation and the most important safety functions, separate mechanical control buttons are attached. As an option, the system is also available with a 21 CFR part 11compliant IPC-control.

    Ergonomics and design

    The Sigpack HCUL is designed for easy access to all machine parts, providing good visibility of the product flow during production. The operation height has been optimized to enable the operators to efficiently perform their functions. This, along with quick-change designed format parts, enables swift format changes. The ergonomic design also enables easy replacement of film reels. Transparent safety guards provide noise protection, enable easy process supervision, and fulfil high safety standards. The HCUL-design is in compliance with GMP hygiene, line clearance and validation guidelines.
