iS2 - The Intelligent Sealing Systems

An Advanced System for Validatable Heat Sealers

The iS2 (Intelligent Sealing System) is a platform that utilizes an advanced Siemens PLC, Siemens HMI and proprietary pneumatic and electrical components to produce heat/vacuum heat seal solutions.

The iS2 System delivers precise controls of time, temperature and pressure, with options to store seal recipes for repeated use. Originally developed to answer the need for validation in medical pouch sealers, the iS2 platform quickly expanded beyond tabletop units as we introduced customers to the range of controls available with such a system.

Available iS2 Interfaces

IMPAK currently uses 3 different Siemens HMIs with the iS2 System. The HMI used is determined by the size of machine; table top machines utilize the smaller touchpad HMI, whereas large frame machines utilize the touchscreen HMI. Read more about the benefits of the iS2 below.

Interface 1
Standard Touchpad

Our most used HMI for the iS2 System. Compact and compatible with small tabletop units. Stores 5 recipes.

Interface 2
Advanced Touchpad

This mid-size HMI is a slight upgrade from the standard touchpad with fewer keys and more recipe storage; stores up to 100 recipes.

Interface 3
Touchscreen

A convenient 7" touchscreen HMI, compatible with large frame machines. Graphs time/temperature. Stores 500 recipes.

Benefits of an iS2 System

label Convenient Control

Advanced Siemens HMIs with Settings, Auto and Manual Test Menus. Touchpad or Touchscreen operation.

label Temperature Accuracy

For legal reasons we claim “±3” degree temperature accuracy, but most tests show accuracy of ±1 degrees F. The system takes temperature readings every 1-2ms.

label Pressure Accuracy

Pressure control with 0.1PSI consistency and high tech proportional valve. Control high and low pressure from the HMI.

label Time Accuracy

Adjust seal time in 1/10 second increments directly from the HMI.

label Independent Thermocouples

Set independent thermocouple temperatures directly from the HMI.

label Recipe Storage

The iS2 allows a system operator to store specific seal recipes and even lock them for added protection.

Case Study: IMPAK Corporation introduces the iS² Series - The Intelligent Sealing System

As of July 2016 IMPAK Corporation began shipping validatable, medical pouch sealers in 15”, 20” and 25” seal lengths, capable of controlling temperature within 1 degree. These machines were an upgrade to MPD Series which had gained a strong following under Aline Corporation of Cerritos, California. Unfortunately, this company was a causality of the recession. However, due to the significant demand from Aline’s existing customer base and major medical corporations looking for advanced sealing equipment, the staff of IMPAK Corporation reverse engineered these machines, and then implemented several improvements. One of the most notable was the addition of the Siemens controller. We offer these items new, and we have the ability to retrofit your existing equipment.
