Active Weighing Solutions introduces the innovative Stitcher Feeders from PacePacker Services.
The Stitcher Feeders can be bolted to the infeed of most stitchers to make them operate fully automatically. The Stitcher Feeders bolt directly onto some stitcher pedestals, others require adaptation plates.
Guide boards fitted to the stitchers’ conveyor accurately position filled sacks approaching the feeders. The feeders’ arm enters the sack top and pulls then into a toothed feed belt, which shapes and feeds it to the stitchers.
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).
As an addition, a Single or Double Ticket Dispenser can be bolted to the Stitcher Feeders to automatically apply one or two tickets. The Double Ticket Dispensers 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.
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 while ticket height can range between 30-140mm, ticket width (pitch between perforated joints) can range between 75 - 150mm.
