Weighpack Gets Baked

Headquartered in Montreal, with three offices in Las Vegas, Chicago and Miami, Weighpack Systems, a packaging industry leader of filling, weighing, bagging and conveyor technologies has just released a complete high-speed weigher and bagger for lightweight baked goods.

The completely integrated system includes a 14-head Primo Weigher and dual (vertical seal) VS Horizontal baggers. To reach required speeds, WeighPack has dramatically reduced product travel time between the scale and bagger achieved by eliminating product spiraling with the Primo Weigher’s individual lane chutes, and using a catch box system that allows the product to be double staged. These additions increase production rates by 40 per cent, and can successfully cycle at more than 60 bags per minute of pita chips at increments of 200 grams.
 
The VS Bagger automatically positions a pre-made wicketed bag, opens it and for waits for product. After loading, the VS Bagger side shifts the bag to the sealer, positions a new bag and repeats the cycle.
