Automated Packaging Systems, the world leader in high-reliability bagging systems, will be demonstrating its new Autobag bag packaging systems at WestPack, Booth #5273 in Anaheim February 5 – 7. The new Autobag 600 and Autobag 650 Wide Bagging Systems have been designed with advanced engineering technology for flexibility and efficiency in large bag applications. These new systems accommodate a range of Autobag bags-on-a-roll and bags-in-a-box material up to 16 inches wide by 27 inches long.
The Autobag 600 is a semi-automatic filling and sealing machine designed for packaging large products at speeds up to 65 bags per minute. An innovative engineering design has eliminated the need for light curtains or double-palm switches, while the adjustable six inch pass-through enables faster, more efficient cycle times.
The Autobag 650 is the same wide bagging system with a fully-integrated next-bag-out printer that eliminates the need for a separate labeling operation, increasing speed and accuracy in mail order ecommerce, prescription-by-mail, catalog order fulfillment, and frequent changeover, variable data applications. The Autobag 650 prints and packs at speeds up to 40 bags per minute.
These baggers include an AutoTouch Control Screen that provides quick and easy access to job storage and recall, on-board diagnostics and productivity monitoring. The Autobag 600 and Autobag 650 can also be networked for full pack station integration and central monitoring. Both baggers feature an open design with fewer moving parts for longer life and ease of maintenance. Plus, the Autobag 600 and Autobag 650 easily integrate with Autobag and third-party equipment for fully automatic bag packaging operations.
“These new baggers were engineered with an emphasis on ergonomic design for the operator, and return on investment for the owner,” says Chris Rempe, Vice President of Global Marketing. “The unobstructed access to the loading area is one of our most user-friendly features to date, and the highly flexible design accommodates a wide range of products and bag sizes, increasing packaging capacity. Automated Packaging Systems is committed to developing products that make our customers more successful,” Rempe explains.
