A superior packaging choice

Buckle Packaging operates from the company owned premises in City Deep, Johannesburg and celebrates its 36th anniversary this year.

As a supplier of packaging equipment for closing “open mouth” filled bags Buckle Packaging represents Fischbein Company (USA). The company offers a product choice from handheld, entry level bag closing machines to uninterrupted in-line automatic bag closing systems.

“No matter what the product is, nor the material, there is a solution to closing the bag by either heat sealing, gluing or stitching,” says Buckle Packaging’s Managing Director, Antho­ny Mason. “Our equipment range is superb quality, backed by extensive product knowledge and backup service. It is proven in the continuous growth the company experiences.”

Model MFS100 Fischbein heavy duty bag stitcher

The model boasts with an auto power driven in-feed prior to the stitcher. Mr Mason describes the advantages of the device as follows, “The operator guides the filled bag into the in-feed device where the bag is gripped by driven belts. It is automati­cally folded over, sewn closed and the thread is cut off for a secure and neat closure. This option is popular on laminated woven polypropylene bags and some paper bags.”

Model SH1000 Saxon continuous “hot air” heat sealer

The sealer is renowned for cutting edge design and reliable performance in the poultry, spice, sugar, rice, powder and foods sectors, as well as fertiliser and pet food sector indus­tries. The proven and unique “hot air” design, sealing the bags continually at high speeds, is the heat sealer of choice. The unit is available in stainless steel for the food industry, offers vari­able speed and allows for simple and easy synchronisation of existing equipment. Temperature is set by means of an Omron PID controller. The Saxon equipment has allowed Buckle Pack­aging to position itself way ahead of its competitors.

Other machinery

The Hanato continuous band sealer has been extremely suc­cessful in the market for prepacks and food packaging, al­lowing a 10 mm wide secure and neat seal. The machines are available with or without conveyors, as well as with or without hot foil printers for identification and traceability.

The company also offers a full range of backup spares and a service facility. Premium bag closing thread is on offer in a range of colours for the bag stitchers.
