The KATS 1000 delivers powerful benefits and is ideal for tray sealing only or MAP packaging in medium to large commercial production environments. Constructed of stainless steel and anodized aluminum, the KATS 1000 is built to operate in wash down environments. Its inline feed rails are fully adjustable and will accomodate bowls, trays, boats and family packs. The extra-wide sealing area accomodates three rows of the popular #3 or #10 size trays at speeds up to 1,800 lid only trays per hour. Trays are advanced by a stepper motor into the sealing mold, sealed and then automatically discharged onto an exit conveyor. Tooling changeover is fast and easy, requiring few tools to accomplish product changeovers in less than fifteen minutes.
