(APPLETON, WI – February 17, 2014) – CMD announces two new pre-made pouch machines with process-driven innovation and proprietary Intelligent Sealing Technology. The 760-C Custom Bag/Pouch System produces 2-side-seal bags or pouches from center-folded material, as well as side-gusseted bottom-seal bags from tube-stock at speeds up to 100 cycles per minute; the 760-PPS Security Bag System makes many configurations of security and bank bags at production rates in excess of 100 cycles per minute.
“Converting flat sheeting into a useable packaging format is a complex combination of multiple processes,” says Scott Fuller, CMD product line manager for intermittent-motion pouch and bag converting systems. “Rather than force the process into a pre-determined machine footprint and design, CMD has taken a unique, process-first approach.” CMD’s Intelligent Sealing Technology is an example of this approach. Balanced tension control technologies, and an open-web approach to auxiliary web application, as found on CMD’s PPS Security Pouch System, are additional examples of developing a system around the process, rather than the other way around. The results are dramatic reductions in process waste, reduced set-up down-time, and verifiable pouch quality.
CMD introduced Intelligent Sealing Technology in 2008 to the medical packaging market. It is now standard on all pouch machines. This propriety technology combines mechanical and electronic controls innovation to carefully maintain and document the three critical sealing parameters of time, temperature, and pressure. Pouch converters can now verify their process and meet the quality standards required for medical and food safety standards – and have the science to prove it.
CMD designs and manufactures high-performance equipment for the plastic converting industry, including pre-made pouch converting systems and patented, high-speed converting lines for plastic bags and film. Custom engineering, process validation and machine optimization services are offered from the 43,000 sq. ft. dedicated Technology Center. CMD serves a global marketplace through a network of sales and service associates worldwide. Equipment is manufactured to exacting standards at USA facilities.
