Sharp MAX continuous-roll bagging systems

Sharp MAX continuous-roll bagging systemsThe MAX 12 and MAX 20 continuous-roll bagging system are designed to automatically package a wide range of products. The new line integrates an optional Videojet DataFlex Plus thermal transfer printer that imprints bar codes, graphics and alphanumeric fonts directly on the package. All machines have an HMI, which is a networkable touchscreen PC running Windows 7 embedded, plus an Allen-Bradley Micrologix 1400 PLC. The MAX 12 accommodates bags up to 12 in. wide and the MAX 20, up to 20 in. wide. The systems index the company's specialty E-Z Bag, then feed it through the machine where it is opened, filled with a product and sealed. A constantly heated sealing mechanism reportedly offers a longer life than impulse mechanisms used by other manufacturers.
