Continuous Roll Bagging System

Sharp's E-Z Bags® feed through the machine, are opened, filled with product, then sealed. Runs bags up to 20" wide and 40" long.

  • Technology advancements include HMI, a networkable touchscreen PC running Windows® 7 embedded plus an Allen-Bradley Micrologix 1400 PLC
  • Faster, with huge gains in throughput
    • Printing—50% faster than other printers
    • Reduced cycle times with the lighter weight aluminum jaw
    • Run multiple applications on one machine with both horizontal and vertical loading capabilities
  • Cost savings
    • No queuing and reduced scrap and material cost with moveable printing head
    • Thermal ribbon usage reduced as much as 90% with simple adjustments
    • Longer lasting constantly heated sealing mechanism
    • Off-the-shelf parts
  • Troubleshoot quickly on the PC based system with manuals and video clips on the HMI

Faster Printing

  • Optional Videojet DataFlex® Plus thermal transfer printer for bar codes, graphics and alphanumeric fonts directly onto the package
  • At least 50% faster than printers used by other manufacturers, increasing throughput dramatically
  • Set moveable printing head to precise positions, based on package size, to print bags in order, eliminating queuing and reducing scrap and material cost
  • Reduce thermal ribbon usage as much as 90% with reduced spacing between impressions, printing with alternative registrations, and adjusting impression placements to increase ribbon usage

Cutting Edge Technology

  • Include HMI, a networkable touchscreen PC running Windows 7 embedded plus an Allen-Bradley Micrologix 1400 PLC from Rockwell Automation
  • Touchscreen is a 12.1" TFT (thin film transistor) technology, including a PC with Windows 7
  • Run Windows labeling software, create labels on the PC, save, then add it to a particular job, so the label format is saved as part of the job   
  • Includes a high speed counter, pulse train output and network capabilities

More Efficient Operation

  • Jaw is aluminum, so less mass, lower inertia, faster movement, and cycle times decrease
  • Heavy duty drive fingers don’t bend even with tugging at bags, so no need to realign
  • Proximity sensor is inside the jaw, protecting the magnet field, improving operation in dirty environments
  • Constantly heated sealing mechanism offers a longer life than impulse mechanisms
