Additional Information

Additional Information

N/A Next-bag-out printing is achieved with an advanced thermal transfer imprinter positioned directly over the next bag to be loaded. This ensures accuracy and efficiency in applications that require frequent product and label changeovers, prevents product queuing and eliminates a separate labeling operation.

State of the art engineering has led to an innovative, inherently safe design. No light curtains or double palm switches are required to achieve safe operation for hand load operations. This revolutionary new approach provides unobstructed access to the open bag, facilitating faster, more ergonomic loading.

The system features a simple design with very few moving parts, reducing lifetime cost and improving uptime. Servo driven web controls along with job storage capabilities reduce the amount of bags in queue, eliminating waste and decreasing changeover time.

Flexibility has been built into the system allowing the Autobag® 550™ to meet the needs of any loading area. Capable of being configured for left or right-hand access to the HMI, cycle switch, roll loading, and ribbon loading provides seamless integration into any operation. The system can also be networked for full pack station integration to facilitate central monitoring; and the extraction of productivity information that can be manipulated for detailed analysis.

When used with genuine Autobag® pre-opened bags-on-a-roll, the Autobag® 550™ ushers in the next evolution of high-quality, reliable and flexible bag packaging, backed by the industry's most comprehensive engineering and field service network.
