Fresh and frozen fruit processors are the focus of a new high-productivity bag packaging system that integrates an automated weigh scale device with a bagging system. Source: Automated Packaging Systems.
A fully integrated weigh scale and bag packaging system designed specifically for fresh and frozen fruit is a new development resulting from a partnership between Automated Packaging Systems and BBC Technologies.
Automated Packaging Systems manufactures the SidePouch bag packaging system, machinery that automatically queues a horizontal row of pre-opened bags for loading products directly into them from an integrated weigh scale. Each bag is then automatically sealed and transferred to a packaging area. The SidePouch system offers bags in a wide range of sizes and with a variety of special features including reclosable zippers, resealable flaps, reinforced headers, easy-open perforations, tamper-evident seals and standup pouch designs. The bag design is matched to the system. The bags can be produced from a choice of several materials and preprinted with high-resolution graphics, text and barcodes.
BBC Technologies designs and manufactures food processing equipment for sorting, cleaning, weighing and packaging fresh produce, with an emphasis on small, soft and delicate products such as blueberries, cherries, cranberries and small tomatoes. The company has a range of products for vision sorting, soft sorting, weighing, cleaning and filling, as well as turnkey solutions. v
