Allen Bradley Control Option

To better accommodate specific customer needs when it comes to programming your iFoiler and iFoiler+, Pillar offers an upgradable control option over the microprocessor that comes standard with our flagship induction sealers.

The microprocessor that comes standard with the iFoiler product family allows customers to run the induction sealers with already set programming from Pillar Technologies. For some customers, it is ideal to have the ability to program their own options into their induction sealers to better align the induction sealer with the other equipment on their line. This is where the Allen Bradley PLC Control Option comes in. With this upgraded control option customers can better customize their sealer programming to fit their specific needs. The Allen Bradley PLC adds an innovative upgrade to the iFoiler product family and enables the induction sealing line for Industry 4.0.

For customers choosing the Allen Bradley Control Option, you also have the option of adding additional features to your induction sealer to better meet your application needs.

  • Motorized Lift: the ability to raise and lower the induction sealer head is programmable through the PLC to raise and lower the induction sealer using a motor instead of manually turning a crank
  • Motorized Sealing Coil Angle: Users can program the sealing coil angle to change via a motor based on the product that is being run at that moment instead of manually adjusting the sealing coil angle
