The Atlas Vac Tool ID (RFID) System enables the packaging engineer to imprint each tool with a distinct recipe identity. This imprint, as well as overwriting capability, is password protected on the Atlas Vac sealer. The operator using these tools must select the correct recipe, as demanded by the RFID equipped tool, or the sealer will not cycle. This enhances productivity where the operator can be empowered to make several tooling and product changeovers throughout the day without requiring the assistance of a supervisor and/or password. Utilization of the correct tooling with the correct validated parameter recipe is assured, verified and recorded...on every stroke!
