Automated Packaging Systems has announced the introduction of a new series of bag packaging systems with advanced technology and ergonomic design for maximum productivity. The Autobag 500 and Autobag 550 baggers are versatile machines with high-speed productivity for a wide range of packaging applications.
The Autobag 500 will package at rates over 100 bags per minute using genuine Autobag pre-opened bags-on-a-roll in sizes from 2 inches to 12 inches wide by 2.5 inches to 20 inches long. The Autobag 550 utilizes the same basic design, with a fully integrated AutoLabel imprinter positioned directly over the next bag to be loaded, eliminating the need for a separate print and label operation.
An innovative design provides more efficient loading with an adjustable pass-through opening up to five inches wide. No light curtains and less guarding enable unrestricted access to the pre-opened bag while remaining inherently safe. These new Autobag bag packaging systems can be configured in left- or right-hand orientation with an easy height adjustment for maximum operator productivity and comfort.
An improved, multi-position unwind with tension control provides faster changeovers of bag-on-a-roll materials with an AutoThread function that reduces waste.
The user-friendly Android-based HMI utilizes an intuitive, graphic-based interface for simplified set-up and operation. Built-in memory function stores data for faster changeover between jobs. The new Autobag 500 and 550 systems have been engineered to meet global safety and quality requirements, including CE certification.
