WeighPack Systems Inc. (WeighPack) recently developed a vertical form fill seal machine for very big bags, which uses up to 50 inch wide roll stock to form a bag of 24 inches wide. The length that is fully adjustable produces a 36 inch long bag with a single stroke. The vertical back seal uses two heavy duty, 5/8” cylinder shafts to assure constant pressure against the back seal. The seal jaws create 24” × 36” bags from roll stock film.
The VerTek 2400 fills one cubic foot of product at speeds of 10 cycles per minute, and creates pillow, gusset and carry handle bags from roll stock film. Handling bag sizes 12 to 24 inches wide, the machine can seal either polyethylene or laminated films. Standard features include: stainless steel construction, PLC controls, large memory storage and servo motor. Options such as hole punching, code dating and gas flush are also available.
