Medical Shuttle Sealing Machine

Validatable One-Station Heat Sealing Machine with Power Shuttle Tray System

SP1218 Shown with Optional Accessories


Algus Power Shuttle Sealing Machines are designed to meet the demanding seal specifications of difficult to seal multi-tray medical packages. The sealing process is completely validatable using independent instrumentation which monitors sealing dwell time, temperature and pressure variables. The compact design fits conveniently on 3.0′ x 4.5′ of floor space.

Precise and repeatable operation guarantees maximum production results along with compliance to the most demanding quality specifications.

  • Operator places blisters or trays in nesting tray
  • Operator loads product, puts lidding stock in place, and activates the power shuttle switch
  • The rest is automatic. The powered shuttle tray precisely positions the packages. Packages are then sealed at predetermined temperature, pressure, and dwell time settings. Finally the powered shuttle tray returns automatically to the load/unload position
  • Operator removes sealed packages to complete the cycle


  • Validatable process
  • Fits easily in restricted space or tight to a wall
  • Reduced operator fatigue
  • Reduced repetitive motion injury liability
  • Lower labor cost vs. two-sided machines
  • Easy tool changeover assures maximum up-time
  • Operator safety features standard on every machine
