Hawo HM 780 dc and DC-V Features

Integrated Printer

Both machines are microprocessor controlled and feature a single line matrix printer. This internal system will print all requested information onto the packaging during the sealing cycle.

Information like batch codes, lot numbers, personal ID’s, contents descriptions and expiry dates can all be printed.

The machine can also be supplied with the optional IntelligentScan® barcode scanner in order to print out the symbols as prescribed in the previous BS EN 980 standards.

Seal Strength and Integrity 

The DC-V machine features the HAWO SealPeak® 12mm sealing seam. This flat seam or sealing weld if you prefer means that seals conducted with a HAWO packaging machine feature outstanding strength and stability that only increases from the outside edges towards what we call the SealPeak®.

The seal edges are soft which makes puncturing by medical devices and other instruments very difficult. When pressure is applied to the seam at any point the contents is naturally caught by the SealPeak® in the center where strength is at it’s peak.

The sealing seams themselves also demonstrate impressive peeling properties with SealPeak® minus the paper shredding (even when tears occur in the wrong direction).

This technology is also great when used in conjunction with gusseted packaging bags.
