FOREMOST Packaging Machines, a Walls Machinery agency, has designed the GT-4 dual-lane horizontal bagger which features two products lanes operating simultaneously.
The machine operates at speeds up to 50 cycles a minute. If desired, the inboard product lane may be operated independently.
A transfer station brings product from the infeed conveyor into position in the two product lanes. Positive product control is achieved with paddles that move products into bags with a smooth hand-like motion to greatly reduce product damage.
The machine features a four-tray loose bag table system. During a bag table change where a table loaded with a fresh wicket of bags replaces an empty table, the machine automatically suspends product feeding to the affected lane only.
