Unique powder and scoop insertion packaging system increases accuracy and throughputs while reducing waste.

WeighPack Systems Inc.’s Star Auger and Swifty Bagger are paired with an optical scanner for the most accurate scoop insertion system available. This new approach guarantees that each bag gets one insert eliminating either having multiple scoops or no scoops in a sealed bag.

The Swifty is designed with two filling stations, both stations come equipped with sensors. Powder is first filled into a stand-up pouch while the scoop inserts are disbursed through the bowl dispenser. The scoops are dropped into a funnel awaiting the bag at the second fill station.

WeighPack’s “no bag, no fill” feature is extended to the scoop inserter. If the scoop is not deployed, the bag will remain unsealed so an insert can be added. If the sensor detects multiple inserts, it diverts the extras to a holding area to be used at a later time.

This unique powder and scoop insertion packaging system includes both the Star Auger 200 and the Swifty 1200.

The Star Auger 200 is designed to fill both powder and granule products. Available with a 45 quart (50L) hopper, this auger filler has a filling range of one ounce to five pounds. The Star Auger features a tool-less hinged hopper that significantly reduces changeover and cleaning time. Supplied with a rubber gasket that eliminates product leakage, the quick release design allows quick access when changing the screw. This auger also comes equipped with PLCs (programmable logic  controls), color touchscreen, and is servo-driven allowing it to operate at high speeds while delivering product consistently with accuracy and precision.

The Swifty 1200 is a continuous motion horizontal bagger designed for pre-made stand up pouches. Designed with a straight flow-through design, the Swifty Bagger is simple to operate, and easy to clean. Designed with options such as a bag shaker and dust collection ports to clear particles for a better bag seal; the Swifty Bagger performs extremely well with powders and granules. The Swifty 1200 is capable of handling bag widths of six to 12 inches wide, and bag lengths of eight to 18 inches long.
