Servo-Driven, Continuous Motion, Inline Packaging System

CMTS Continuous Motion Tray Sealer


The CMTS-1000 is a continuous motion, high-volume tray sealer. Capable of sealing up to 300 trays per minute, it is the ideal choice for customers who demand high speed, high performance packaging equipment.


A mechanical drive system carries packages on a conveyor chain as a group of traveling heat seal heads, mounted on a linear roller track, seal the trays.  Film is cut in between each container, leaving absolutely no waste of film.  The unique design of the CMTS-1000’s Eco-Cut® system by ORICS eliminates this film waste and have proven to be a perfect fit for leading processors in the food packaging industry. ORICS’ Eco-Cut® film feeder technology cuts the film in between each container, leaving no wasted film and potentially saving the facility $35,000, or more, per year in material costs alone. Further savings include reduced labor costs and downtime by eliminating the need to handle and discard excess film.

What’s more, Eco-Cut® also lessens a producer’s carbon footprint and environmental impact by virtually eliminating discarded material.

By reducing the material cost for the ongoing purchase of lidding material (film), an Eco-Cut® system practically pays for itself; turning environmentally-conscious eco-friendly design into verifiable savings.

Die-cutting of the film and placement of pre-cut lidstock are also options.


Equipped with a programmable logic controller (PLC) and a high-speed optical encoder, the CMTS-1000 can be configured for a variety of production applications. All of the machine’s functions are controlled from a digital touch screen with a state-of-the-art, menu-driven interface.
