PAC Machinery Deploys New Easy Touch Start Sensor Option for the Rollbag Brand Bagger Machines

Manufacturing Technology Insights | Wednesday, November 10, 2021

The sensor eliminates a step in the packing process because the bagger is cycled without the requirement for the operator to touch a button or engage a footswitch.

FREMONT, CA: “Operator acceptance is critical to packaging automation and this option on our automatic baggers allows an operator to cycle the machine in a manner most comfortable for them,” said Greg Berguig, VP Sales & Marketing PAC Machinery. PAC Machinery, a leader in the flexible packaging industry, has developed and deployed a convenient start button add-on option for Rollbag automatic baggers, including the Rollbag R785 all-electric automatic bagger. For ease of usage and enhanced productivity, the device can be put wherever on the system. The easy touch start sensor has a strong magnetic foundation and activates the machine with just a light touch of the button, removing the need for a foot pedal and enhancing bagging and production speeds. The operator just places an item in the bag, presses the button to seal it, and the next bag is fed out. The sensor can be touched with a finger, hand, or even an elbow by the operator.

This sensor, which the operator can place wherever they want, recognizes the presence of the operator’s hand on the button, causing the machine to cycle automatically. It eliminates a step in the packing process because the bagger is cycled without the requirement for the operator to touch a button or engage a footswitch.

Rollbag automatic baggers are available in several sizes, including tabletop and floor units, and provide dependable, industrial-grade poly bagging. For quick bag size adjustments and easy set-up, these baggers use Rollbag pre-opened poly bags. A PLC is included, including job storage, batch counters, packaging statistics, and login-in levels.

These machines have a variety of safety features, such as jaw blockage detection, and can be employed in various sectors. Poly mailer fulfillment, aerospace components, injection molding plastics, medical equipment, fast-moving consumer items transported to a fulfillment center, and other markets are ideal.
