The Stitcher Feeder can be bolted to the infeed of most stitchers to make them operate fully automatically. Guide boards fitted to the stitcher conveyor accurately position filled sacks approaching the feeder. The feeder arm enters the sack top and pulls it into a toothed feed belt, which shapes and feeds it to the stitcher. The Stitcher Feeder bolts directly onto some stitcher pedestals, others require adaption plates.
Most paper sacks are suitable providing the tops stand open and there is approximately 200mm of ullage(distance from the product in the bag to the top of the sack).
Ticket Dispenser Operation
As an addition, a Single or Double Ticket Dispenser can be bolted to the Stitcher Feeder to automatically apply one or two tickets. The Double Ticket Dispenser can be used to apply single tickets if required. As standard, dispensers are fitted with a tray for fanfold tickets, but a free running turntable for rolls of tickets can be fitted instead should this be required. Ticket Dispensers can also be used in conjunction with other stitching systems too.
Tickets should be made of stout paper or thin card and have an 8mm hole punched at the joint centre. Ticket rolls must not exceed 200mm diameter.
Ticket height can range between 30-140mm, ticket width (pitch between perforated joints) can range between 75 - 150mm.
The speed of the belt feeder on the Stitcher Feeder can be matched to your conveyor a maximum throughput of 15 sacks per minute is typical. Approximately 300mm is required between each sack.
