POLY-CLIP SYSTEM HAS EXPANDED THE RANGE OF FEATURES OF ITS PDC-A 600/700 AUTOMATIC DOUBLE-CLIPPERS. FOR RING AND HALF-RING SAUSAGES THE CLIPPING MACHINE PDC-A 600 R IS NOW CONFIGURABLE IN THE MODULAR SYSTEM. THE SEPARATOR OF THIS MACHINE HAS BEEN SPECIALLY OPTIMISED TO PROTECT NATURAL CASINGS DURING PROCESSING. ALL MODELS IN THE PDC-A SERIES ARE CHARACTERISED BY THEIR WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS, ROBUST DESIGN AND BY THE FACT THAT THEY OPERATE WITHOUT ELECTRONICS AND HAVE LOW RUNNING COSTS.
WIDEST VARIETY FOR UNIVERSAL APPLICATIONS
Whether for medium-sized or large-scale industrial producer, the three models of PDC-A 600, PDC-A 700 and PDC-A 600 R will, depending on the configuration used, enable you to manufacture single portions or chains, long sausages, rings or half-rings very easily. The PDC-A series will securely close all plastic, fibrous, collagen and natural casings. The modular design enables to configure an automatic double-clipper to suit to the own precise requirements. The PDC-A 600 caters for fibrous casings of calibre up to 65 mm and plastic casings up to 90 mm. For fibrous casings up to a calibre of 105 mm, and plastic casings of even larger calibre, the PDC-A 700 should be employed.
PDC-A 600 R: SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR NATURAL CASINGS
The PDC-A 600 R was specifically developed for ring sausages such as bologna, chorizo, blood- and liver sausage. This ring specialist performs secure but gentle closure of natural casings of calibre 46+ mm and also of collagen and cellulose casings. Its special separator system ensures for safe processing of the sensitive casing material and the pneumatically controlled natural casing brake for accurate portioning of the product. Collagen and cellulose casings can of course also be securely closed by the PDC-A 600 R to produce straight individual portions and chains.
MODULAR DESIGN – THE PDC-A GROWS ALONG WITH YOUR SYSTEM
Thanks to their modular design, the PDC-A models may at any time be individually adapted to suit changing production requirements. One of the most important upgrades is the string dispenser for rings – from now on it is situated to the right of the machine housing. This is a more ergonomic arrangement, as it simplifies processing and shortens the processing paths. Other upgrade options include an automatic looper (GSE), a pneumatically moved casing brake holder, the ES 4000 labelling system, S-clips on spools and a bobbin holder.
OPERATOR COMFORT AMONG THE BEST
For enhanced operator comfort, the PDC-A series now offers a considerably increased swivel range which allows for easy casing change. Generally speaking, the PDC-A automatic double-clippers are easy and comfortable to operate after only a short period of familiarisation. Ergonomic control keys, situated directly at the filling horn, help to ensure fast and efficient operation. Production can only be automatically controlled with the aid of these two keys. Two-handed triggering of the first clip offers the operator increased additional safety. Furthermore, the ergonomic design of this series also takes into account variation in operator body size. And for smaller operators, there is a second feed option for the clip stick in lower position.
Fully automatic operation with the PDC-A series guarantees a steady and efficient production flow. Furthermore, its space-saving design means that it is ideally suited to small production premises. Despite its high clipping speeds it is capable of low-noise operation. Its simple operating concept guarantees a fast production start, with clearly and functionally arranged control elements in all cases allowing for rapid, product-specific adjustments when and where required: pre-select counter for sausage chains and labels and loops, adjustment of punch delay time, pneumatic clip pressure adjustment, adjustable clip closure height and adjustment of punch and separator speed. And the low air consumption also helps to reduce operating costs.
MACHINE DESIGN FOR EXEMPLARY HYGIENE AND CLEANING
The machine’s hygienic design in stainless steel and industrial plastic and its smooth, surfaces mean that even the most persistent emulsion has little chance of sticking, so that easy but thorough cleaning is assured. These robust machines are also designed so that they are open below, thus allowing for water drainage when cleaning is being carried out. However, the machine interior is best protected against moisture.
