Autobag AB 180 bagger with Accu-Count 200 Offers Speed and Accuracy for Bag Packaging

Automated Packaging Systems, the world leader in high-reliability bag packaging systems, is introducing in Asia the Autobag® AB 180 Bagging System with an integrated Accu-Count® 200 high speed counter. This high-speed bag packaging system includes an inline automatic counter and thermal transfer printer for applying high-resolution graphics, text and barcodes directly on the bag. The counter and bagger system will count, batch and package up to 2,500 bags per hour in sizes from 5 to 28 cm wide x 8 to 56 cm long. The complete system has a small footprint of approximately 1 x 1.5 meters.

The Accu-Count 200 is a vibratory automatic infeed system with a detection eye that will count small parts from 0.65 cm to 5 cm wide and up to 6.3 cm long. It includes part orientation funnels and overcount discharge for maximum speed and accuracy. The system is available with multiple bowl configurations, allowing the flexibility to run different parts. A bulk supply of product is driven to a single flow that is automatically batched to a pre-set quantity and then funneled to a pre-opened poly bag, which is sealed and dispensed as the next bag is printed and staged for loading. 

Typical applications include hardware fasteners, electrical parts, plumbing supplies, craft items, and many other small parts for bag packaging. Product changeovers are achieved in less than two minutes using genuine Autobag pre-opened bag on a roll materials. A wide variety of film types are available, from clear to opaque and with multi-color printing as needed. The AB 180 with Accu-Count and other Autobag packaging systems will be on display in the Automated Packaging Systems stand V27 at ProPak Asia, 12-15 June in Bangkok, Thailand.
