WeighPack Systems’ vertical bagger provides sanitary solutions
WeighPack Systems’ VF-1200 continuous motion vertical bagger is now available in a sanitary version for high pressure washdown needs.
Engineered for wet, cold and harsh environments, the VF-1200 is constructed in stainless steel with the highest IP standards for motors, heating elements, thermocouples, electronics, touch screens and cabinets.
“We feel strongly that our industry requires more solutions for high sanitary washdown to help mitigate any risks of cross contamination or bacterial growth as a result of poor cleaning to ensure that the consumer remains safe,” Nicholas Taraborelli, WeighPack vice president, said in a news release.
The VF 1200 can handle multiple package formats and produces a range of package sizes, providing flexibility for both retail and club size packaging for industries including snack foods, confectionery, frozen foods, cheese and seafood as well as meat and poultry.
Engineered with an open-frame design for easy operator access, the VF 1200 features 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.
