WeighPack Systems Inc., Montreal, has designed the new Swifty Bagger, a machine made to handle a broad range of pre-made bags, including pillow, stand-up, carry handle, and center/corner capping. The Swifty Bagger automatically grabs, opens, fills, and seals pre-made bags, according to a news release.
The Swifty Bagger’s design allows the operator to see all stations from the touch screen controls to create a more user-friendly approach. WeighPack’s new machine was built with name-brand components, including Festo cylinders and valves and Allen Bradley color touch screens.
The Swifty Bagger also features a variable speed control, no-bag, no-fill sensors, a mechanical cam shaft drive, and an integrated exit conveyor. It can be used for several product applications, including snacks, grains, pet food, powders and liquids, according to a news release.
