Description TwinStar 9

Fully automatic high speed Traysealing machine for preformed trays - made
of plastic or aluminum material - in combination with topfilm obtained from
suitable reel.

Machine execution TwinStar 9
  • Machine execution with stainless steel parts and meal conform plastic
  • Firm stainless steel frame as welded and sand blasted construction
    ensuring a high torsional stiffness and stability.
  • Stainless steel frame with adjustable height feet (+/- 20 mm)

  • Product flow from left to right (considered from operator side)

  • Vertically opening safety doors in the tool area of the machine made of
    stainless steel with punched plate.
  • Security covers made of stainless steel which can be swivelled upwards on
    the infeed and outfeed area with punched plate.

  • Hinged control cabinet doors made of stainless steel

  • Tray transport via flat belts with quick release system for disassembly for
    cleaning without tools.
  • Out-feed conveyor drive via frequency inverter for smooth interface with
    downstream equipment such as lane converger, labellers, lidder etc.

  • Servo motor control of tray carriers allowing highest transfer speed and
    smoothest tray handling in relation to the type of product.

  • Servo motor driven knee lifting system of tool
  • Mandrels for reel unwind and rewind with pneumatic reel fixation

  • Film position control via servomotor for high precision indexing

  • Film reel exhaustion control
  • Wide sealing area: approx. 930 x 380 x 110 mm
    (special execution: depth up to 140 mm)

  • WITHOUT Vacuum pump (Possibility for integration into machine
    up to max. 300 cbm/h)

  • Integrated CFS control system. Control panel with 10,5" colour touch screen
    mounted on a 180° swivel arm
  • Up to 200 programs can be stored. Data transfer for parameter saving via
    USB interface

  • All necessary operating parameters are displayed, automatic control of
    sealing temperature as well as troubleshooting etc on different password

  • Optionally performance analysis are displayed via "CostFox" software
  • Machine execution according to currently valid European security and
    hygiene regulations .

  • Maintenance unit with pressure controller, air filter

  • Gas/O² Execution:
    gas flushing system, Oxygen (modified atmosphere; O² > 21%)
    incl. gas butter tank

  • Infeed Transport Belt (integrated in machine):
    Belt 1: Length approx. 830 mm
    Belt 2: Length approx. 960 mm
    Belt-width: approx. 330 mm

  • Outfeed Transport Belt (integrated in machine):
    Belt-length: approx. 1.800 mm
    Belt-width: approx. 330 mm

  • 3-coloured stacking lamp for displaying operating states

  • Machine dimensions:
    Length: 4.620 mm
    Width: 962 mm
    Height: 2.250 mm
    Infeed/outfeed height: 950 mm (+/- 20 mm)

  • Protection class control cabinet: IP 55

  • Protection class tool supplies: IP 67
  • Voltage: 3 x 400 Volt+N+PE, +/- 10%, 50 Hz

  • Nominal current: 35 A

  • Power consumption: 18 kW
  • Nominal width Pneumatic: 6 bar / 900 nl/min.


  • Achieves the highest hygiene level thanks to fully stainless steel
    execution with self-draining surfaces.

Maintenance / Cleaning

  • Perfect accessibility to the machine from both sides for die change-
    over, cleaning and maintenance
  • Low running costs due to high quality components and easy access to all
    machine modules. The lifting station is maintenance free, only few
    lubrication points inside the machine.


  • Easy dismounting of conveyors belts for cleaning, quick replacement of
    knives (within 10 minutes at dismounted format)
  • Die top and bottom part removal with precise mechanical docking system.
    Enables the die changeover within less than 10 minutes thanks to the solid
    die-set trolley. Easy and quick dismounting / mounting of the tray
  • Individual temperature control of sealing heads (with max. 6 circuits)
    for high reliability and fast heat-up.
  • The TwinStar9 can be executed in a one-lane ore double-lane version.

Capacity / Efficiency

  • High speed and efficiency thanks to state-of-the-art machine- and drive
    technology, mostly servo drives.
  • High production output based on a large sealing area (930 x 380 x 110 mm)
  • Vacuum pump: possibility for located inside the machine up to 300 cbm/h.


  • Safety is assured thanks to 850 mm free space between tray carriers and
    in-feed/out-feed doors.
  • Certified system in case of an application with high level of oxygen
    allows the utilization of a standard vacuum pump.
  • Protruding object detection (POD) supports avoidance of tray crash and
    machine / format damage, caused by protruding products in the tray (Option)
Tooling setup TwinStar 9

including die-set:
complete Die-set for MAP application - sealing with modified atmosphere.
Single-lane die configuration. Tray running direction either wide edge
leading or narrow edge leading (depending application, capacity and tray
size) Basic die-set concept designed to run tray depths from min. 15 mm
up to max. 110 mm

The Die-set consists of the following parts:

Topside die-part including sealing heads and knives (either inside cut
or outside cut is possible, depending application and materials)

Bottom side die-part including sealing frame and support plates

2 Tray transport arms, for moving trays into sealing area and
discharging sealed packs. The technical design of the tray transport arms
allows the working with different heights of Trays without modification.

Sealing die set 4-folds - inside cut execution
Tray type: unknown
Tray dimensions: approx. 309 x 204 mm

Others TwinStar 9

including Trolley:
GEA Trolley is designed for safe, quick and easy change-over of die-
sets. Die-sets can be transferred from the TwinStar docking station to
the trolley and can be used to store die set components and be used as
maintenance cart.

including Storage Rack:
GEA storage rack is designed for one die-set, it can also be used for
die set turning from a standard to a mirrored machine (or backwards).
GEA storage rack requires to be fixed to the floor as it has the same
docking points of the TwinStar.
