Pouch handler

March 2, 2005
The Floating Pouch Handler from AutoPak handles sealed pouches and flexible packages containing products like juices and sauces. The system is designed to transfer pouches from indexing to continuous motion equipment or vice-versa. It places pouches into rectangular nests, ensuring correct orientation for any combination of continuous or indexing processes further downstream such as end-of-line packaging, says the company. Operating at speeds up to 250 pouches per minute, the unit accommodates pouches ranging in size from 3 in. x 3 in. to 12 in. x 18 in.
