The Foot Upper Automatic (FUA) has the sealing element on the upper jaw and the silicon rubber on the lower jaw. This helps to protect the element from moisture and contamination. The FUA is designed for the continuous sealing of thermoplastic films such as polyethylene and polypropylene and makes a clean and secure seal. The sealing time in this unit is controlled by a plug-in transistorized circuit board and electronic timers. The uniform pressure provided by an electromagnet pulls down the sealing arm, helping eliminate operator error. Once the correct control settings have been programmed, consistent seals are maintained automatically and consistently, making the last seal as perfect as the first. This sealer is ideal for packaging candies, food, stationery, drugs, tools, replacement parts and a variety of other products. Includes an electric foot pedal for manual operation.
