dispensing system built for Sellier and Bellot also has blank ammunition
sealing capabilities,” said Edgardo Rodriguez, Director of Sales and

different calibers. In a simultaneous process, the Auto Sealer applies
projectile and primer sealant, performs vision systems inspections and
UV curing. More than 200 rounds per minute can be processed.

and save time, while increasing the accuracy and quality of the finished
products," added Rodriguez. "It is one of the most efficient dispensing
and curing machines on the market today."
