The SA-U is considered a universal bag making machine, as it can be fully customized to be capable of producing a wide range of bags, from the simple bottom/side sealed bags to gusseted bags, boutique bags, STEB, courier bags, heavy duty bags, aluminum bags and much more.
The modular design of the SA-U machine allows offering tailor-made solutions to ELBA’s customers, with a wide range of accessories, like string zipper insertion system, flexi loop or patch handle system, wave top cutting unit, rigid handle (just to list some of them). Some of these features, like the flexi loop and the patch handle stations, can be installed on the same machine, thus giving the customers the possibility of manufacturing different types of bags.
Each station is independent, fully servo driven and plug & play and the machine configuration can be upgraded at any time, to face new unpredictable market demands.
The SA-U is equipped with the latest version of Siemens components and a state-of-the-art HMI (based on Siemens Profinet®) that allows the machine to be easily set, to save thousands of different recipes and to simultaneously monitor each component of the machine, with a complete control of the sealing process.
In order to meet different customers’ needs, the SA-U machine is offered in four sealing widths: 650 mm (25.6”), 950 mm (37.4”), 1250 mm (49.2”) and 1550 mm (61”). Easy operation, fast set-up time, reduced scraps and low/easy maintenance complete the characteristics of the SA-U machine and make it a profitable and reliable investment with a short payback period.
Moreover, the SA-U machine is equipped with a remote assistance protocol, in order to support customers in case of new machine setup or troubleshooting.
