The sealing surface is divided into small mm2-sized zones, individually controllable and thus measurable. A software tool is provided to evaluate and use the heating zone information collected. This can be used to reduce temperature deviations as well as to monitor inline processes in sealing applications.
The very high area output combined with its own low thermal mass results in minimum consumption of energy for the heating element itself and dynamic and controllable behaviour. Pilot applications have demonstrated energy savings of 8,000% in heating up to sealing temperature and around 40% in continuous operation compared to standard systems.
