Bud-Pak recently installed automatic bag sealing equipment at Cotton Seed Distributors’ new Westbrook plant, near Toowoomba. The automatic bag sealer line is a part of a turnkey supply for filling, bag sealing, palletising and stretch wrapping lines as won by tender.
The Technipes LS-DP bag sealer is fully automatic and is suitable for medium to high speed factory production. Translating arms accept the filled bags from the bag fillers and a conveyor transports the bags to the micrometic bag trimming unit, then to the folding station where the bag tops are double folded.
A heat resistant chain conveyor is then used to transport the folded bags through the heat sealing process, which seals the bags using heat sealed adhesive tape to ensure a positive seal is achieved. The sealed bag is then rotated 90º and released down a gravity slide to the palletising and wrapping lines on the floor.
