EVOLUTION SONIXS MS-6-VA: Reliable and corrosion-resistant
The Mosca EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6-VA offers several advantages for strapping packages containing fresh fish, meat, and other food products. This is the first stainless-steel, side-seal machine equipped with the patented SoniXs ultrasonic sealing unit with electronic self-calibration. Particles cannot drop on the sealing unit because it is placed to the side of the strap guide frame and the strapped product. This avoids contaminants that could affect machine performance. With ultrasonic technology, there is no need to thermally melt the strapping material for a secure closure. This keeps plastic residue from forming on the sealing unit and eliminates vapors or toxins. It also prevents polystyrene beads from sticking to the sealing unit when strapping styrofoam boxes.
High-quality stainless steel is another key factor for reliable machine performance. „We use the highest economically-viable stainless-steel quality in all parts of the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6-VA,” Timo Mosca explains. „This keeps the strapping machine corrosion-resistant under the toughest conditions.” The Mosca „Aquarium” at the company’s Anuga Foodtec booth shows how the stainless-steel SoniXs ultrasonic sealing unit is unaffected by external conditions. The demonstration unit is fully exposed to water, yet continues to work flawlessly.
The EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6-VA is designed for use in production lines. Mosca also offers a matching corrosion-resistant feeding mechanism with plastic chain links in a stainless-steel frame. The machine is controlled using an intuitively-operated panel. Up to 52 strapping cycles per minute are possible with the entry-level model. The optional double strap dispenser helps to ensure smooth operation. Two coils are inserted into the strapping machine at the same time. When the end of one coil is reached, the machine automatically switches over to the second coil. This reduces the time required to change the coil by around 80 percent and eliminates the need to have an operator on site to handle the coil change.
