WeighPack launches new continuous motion bagger
WeighPack has launched its newest vertical form, fill and seal machine for high-speed applications. The VF 1200 continuous motion bagger, which debuted at Pack Expo International in Chicago in late October 2022, can produce up to 150 bags per minute in varying sizes up to 16 inches in length.
The VF 1200 can handle multiple package formats for industries ranging from snack foods and confectionery to frozen foods and baked goods. The bagger features vertical sealing bars that are continuously in motion, so the film does not need to stop to receive its vertical seal.
This provides an advantage over vertical, form, fill and seal machines with intermittent motion seal bars which only open and close in full sequence, the company said.
Engineered with an open-frame design for easy operator access, the VF 1200 features stainless steel construction, vacuum pull belts, second film roll support, film splice table, Omron motion controller and servos, a 15-inch color touchscreen and toolless removable vertical seal bar, horizontal jaws and forming shoulder.
Options available include full sanitary washdown, bag gusset attachment, integrated printer, and hole punch.
