Single machine can seal, inspect, and UV cure pistol, rifle, and blank ammunition cartridges.

Sanford, FL, April 04, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Hernon Manufacturing, the innovator in ammunition sealing technologies has shipped the second of its newly designed environmental sealing and UV curing machines for small caliber ammunition. The Auto Sealer 5000, custom built to meet the assembly line specifications for a leading ammunitions manufacturer in the United States, will be placed in use in early 2011.

Hernon’s new Auto Sealer 5000 series of machines are capable of sealing various calibers of assembled pistol, rifle, and blank ammunition on a single machine by simply changing out the particular conveyor belt – a process that can be completed in 15 minutes or less of downtime. Hernon’s machines are capable of simultaneously applying projectile and primer sealant, vision systems inspections, and UV curing at speeds in excess of 200 rounds per minute.
