LAKO TOOL & MFG., INC. is proud to announce the SL-5 PLC Heat Sealer. The SL-5 is an extremely accurate heat sealer designed to enhance heated crimp seals for the flexible packaging industry. The PLC controlled heat sealer, with it's touch screen and accurate sealing ability is easy to operate. By simply changing the values on the touch screen which include, sample size, pressure, temperature and dwell time, the operator can quickly change the variables from test to test. The SL-5 insures sealing consistency for each sample. The built-in dual-load cells measure the actual force applied to the film. The PLC controlled temperature is assured to +/- 2°F across the entire width of the film sample.
The SL-5 stores the test results which can be easily recalled and viewed. The optional communications port allows the operator to quickly communicate test results for reporting purposes.
