Abstract

See full text

A clipping machine for producing sausage-shaped products, containing a flowable filling material, like a sealing compound, in a tubular casing material. The clipping machine comprises a filling tube for feeding filling material into the tubular casing material stored on the filling tube and being closed at the front end by a closing clip, a clipping device for placing and closing at least one closing clip on the back end of a tubular casing material just filled, and a control unit for controlling the clipping machine. The clipping machine further comprises a first sensor for measuring the pull-off length of the tubular casing material pulled off from the filling tube as well as a second sensor for measuring the movement of the filling material while being fed to the tubular casing material.
