General Questions

What is an RS-5 Plus controller and what are the benefits?


*The RS-5 Plus Replaces the RS-3 Controller*
  • The RS-5 Plus is a programmable electronic controller designed to control an L Sealer or Combination Shrink System. The RS-5 Plus is setup to control several machine configurations through the digital keypad. The controller can be configured to control either impulse or hot knife L Sealers equipped with or without a shrink tunnel.
  • The RS-5 Plus controls: Seal Time, Side & Front Seal Temp, Seal Conveyor Run Time, Seal Conveyor Speed, Tunnel Conveyor Speed, Tunnel Temperature, Cycle Count, and Heated Hole Punch. 
  • Benefits of the RS-5 Plus Digital Controller:
    • Intuitive User Interface - Easy to use and understand control screens
    • Control Assurance - Precise, accurate digital settings
    • Durable and Robust - Heavy Duty Controller for high volume usage with repeatable results
    • Reliable - Precise PID temperature controls provide the most consistent operating temperature
    • Universal - Common controller across multiple Heat Seal machines
    • Certified - Meets UL 508A Standards
    • All with an Industry First - THREE Year Warranty on the machine’s original controller

Maintenance

How to adjust the Heavy Duty Seal Arm


  • BEFORE YOU BEGIN  Make sure to disconnect air if present and electrical power to the machine before adjusting the sealing arm. Then remove the covers covering the arm shaft. Loosen the clevises for the air cylinders from the arm shaft.
  • ADJUSTING THE SEAL ARM
  1. Adjust the arm springs so the arm just opens and stays in the open position by:
    • Putting a lever arm in the hole in the arm shaft that is at least 24 inches long.
    • Pull the lever towards the front of the machine to close the arm.
  2. While holding the lever tightly, loosen the 3/4” nuts on the arm casting. (Requires two people)
  3. To increase the opening force, rotate the arm shaft with the lever in the direction that will close the arm.Re-tighten the 3/4” nuts on the arm castings. Torque to 35 lb. per ft.
  4. Adjust the open stop to the desired maximum open position.
  5. Make sure the arm is all the way open and the cylinder fully retracted.
  6. Check that the cylinder is perpendicular to the arm shaft, then tighten the clevis on the shaft.
  7. Verify that the arm will easily close all the way. Do this by carefully pulling the arm down (the air should still be disconnected). If the arm feels smooth all the way down to the arm’s sealing position and there is less than 2 3/4 inches of the shaft extending out from the cylinder, then the arm is ok.
  8. If the arm will not close all the way, the maximum open position will need to be decreased. Loosen the cylinder clevis (see item 3) on the shaft, decrease the maximum position by changing the open stop, and repeat the procedure from the “adjust open stop” step listed above.

L Sealer Tape and Pad Maintenance


  • Check the seal pads
  • The L Sealer seal pad will show wear from constant use and will need replaced when problems occur or it no longer provides a constant seal for your packages.
