New Fast Pre-pack Collator System For Bulk Goods Handling.
The multi award winning packing equipment manufacturer has designed the standalone Collator System to maximize the ability of working with existing sack placing and sealing equipment.
Capable of collating and packing up to 80 pre-packs into outer sacks per minute, the system overcomes common problems typically seen with other systems, as explained by Paul Wilkinson, Pacepacker’s Business Development Manager, explains: “We saw a gap in the market for a collator which would continuously support the pre-packed bulk goods as they were entering the outer sack. We found that many systems on the market did not control the fall of the product very well, which often results in pre-packs breaking through the bottom of the outer sack due to their weight and density. We have improved this part of the process by incorporating motorised support arms to control the descent of the pre-packed polybags into the outer sack, eliminating damage and waste to both product and pack.”
Suitable for small to medium sized bags and sacks, this machine will operate up to 13 operations per minute.
