Save On Snack Packaging Film With Ultrasonic From Ishida




Ishida’s, Atlas Ultrasonic snack food bagmaker uses significantly less packaging film and improves seal quality.  Traditional bag sealing uses high-temperature jaws that transfer heat through all layers of the film producing a wide seal.  Ishida’s ultrasonic technology heats only the sealant layers of the mated film surfaces. This produces end and back seals that are 30-50% narrower and far stronger than ordinary heat seals.  Savings in reduced film usage over one year are remarkable. Ultrasonic sealing jaws require no pre-heating and are ready to use immediately. They receive power only during sealing. This reduces energy consumption to a fraction of that required by heat sealing jaws and eliminates delays for cooling and the risk of burns during maintenance.


This versatile snack bagmaker produces a variety of bag sizes up to 11” / 280mm wide.  Choose from stand-alone or direct-mount models with a single tube or nested format for twin-tube applications.
