Secondary packaging operations need speed, flexibility and adaptability to keep up with today’s high-speed filling lines. Here’s a handful of systems designed to do just that, which you can see in person at the upcoming WestPack 2016 show (Feb. 9-11; Anaheim, CA).
Case packer operates in semi- or fully-automatic mode
Rated at up to 20 picks or 10 cases of flexible packaging per minute, the BantamPro ELS (photo above) can operate as a semi-automatic or, with integrated case erector and sealer, as a fully-automatic machine. It can pack pouches, bags and flow-wrapped products into a range of cases. The BantamPro ELS features a steel frame for durability, a small footprint to conserve floor space and an intuitive human-machine interface (HMI) to make operations straightforward and trouble-shooting fast. Changeover for different products is streamlined to improve throughput and reduce downtime.
See the fully-automatic version of the BantamPro ELS in person at WestPack 2016 in Booth 5429, where it will be integrated with the Tekkra Triad shrink wrapper, another Pro Mach company.
