Packaging solutions company, Plexpack Corp., announces new bag sealing models equipped with a high performance Human Machine Interface; their HMI programming now simplifies and monitors all controls. See for further details.

"Emplex industry's leading seal integrity and consistency is now backed by unequaled ease of use, process control, and flexibility.” Paul Irvine, CEO. Plexpack

Plexpack Corporation announced today multiple new Emplex Bag Sealer models with a high performance Human Machine Interface (HMI). The new HMI, developed with B&R, provides fast, repeatable set up, simplifies operation and maintenance, and increases flexibility to manage important data and resources. Enhancements include an easy to use touchscreen interface that simplifies setting, monitoring, and tracking crucial controls like heat, seal pressure, and speed as well as new capabilities to set preferences, calibrate processes, manage maintenance, and identify issues.

The new HMI is standard on all Emplex MPS continuous band sealers and and available as an option on select Damark Shrink Wrappers and Bundlers. Emplex MPS Sealers are ideal solutions when speed, seal integrity and versatility are paramount. Emplex MPS sealers provide fast, precise, strong seals on nearly any heat sealable soft, high density, ecological, or specialty film. MPS sealers are available in stand alone and custom configurations for a wide range of specialty and high speed applications. Frequent add ons and options include robotic loading, validatable sealing, vacuum and gas flush capabilites, and print-reject systems. MPS systems provide outstanding performance for products of nearly any weight, size, and type, including stand-up, gusseted, pillow, wicketed, and zippered bags.

The new HMI will be featured at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 28-30, in the Plexpack booth, C-4600. Emplex MPS models with the new HMI on exhibit at Pack Expo include vacuum, gas flush systems and print reject systems. Models with new HMI begin shipping Fall 2015.

Enhanced capabilities of Emplex models with the new HMI include:

  •     Precise, repeatable sealing settings and calibration from a single-point for speed, temperature, and pressure.
  •     Selectable unit preferences for speed, temperature, pressure, and length.
  •     Recipe management and selection for different materials and products
  •     Production and user activity reporting and management tools for increased security, resource, efficiency, and productivity monitoring.
  •     Multi-Language preference settings
  •     Integrated system diagnostics and background monitoring of key processes and compon ents to prevent machine damage, product loss or system failure.
  •     Preventative maintenance alerts to maintain peak performance and machine operability.
  •     Pictorial maintenance guides and instructional tutorials.

“B&R has been a great partner to help us continue our tradition of delivering certain results,” says Paul Irvine, Plexpack CEO. “They worked closely with us to understand our customers’ needs and develop an interface that is easy to use and delivers enhanced features that improve performance and efficiency. Emplex industry leading seal integrity and consistency is now backed by unequaled ease of use, process control, and flexibility.”
