The Model 301SF packager features a new film loading design that makes it easier to load film onto the machine. The trim management system has a positive placement of the trim tail to reduce the potential for trim breakage. It also allows the wound trim to be removed without stopping the production of the bagging machine. The single piece extrusion eliminates the joint between the vertical and horizontal seal bars. This reduces maintenance, improves trim tail strength and assists with repeatable package release.
