Buckle Packaging: MFSlOO Fischbein heavy duty bag stitcher
The Model MFSlOO Fischbein Heavy Duty bag stitcher boasts an auto power driven in-feed prior to the stitcher. Anthony Mason spells out the advantages of using this device. “It allows the operator to guide the filled bag into the in-feed device. The bag is gripped by the driven in-feed belts, and it is automatically folded over and sewn closed and the thread cut off, giving a secure neat closure. This option is requested more often on laminated woven polypropylene bags and some paper bags” explains Buckle Packaging MD, Anthony Mason.
Also available from Buckle Packaging is the Model SHlOOO Saxon continuous ‘hot air’ heat sealer, which is renowned for leading edge design and reliable performance in the poultry, spice, sugar, rice, powder and foods sectors, as well as other industries such as the fertilizer and pet food sectors. The proven and unique ‘hot air’ design of sealing the bags at continuous high speeds has allowed it to be a winner on the market. The unit comes in stainless steel for the food industry, has variable speed as standard which allows for simple and easy synchronisation of existing equipment, and 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 with the unique features it has to offer. “Other machinery such as the Hanato continuous band sealer has been extremely successful in the market for prepacks and food packaging, allowing a lOmm wide secure and neat seal”, continues Anthony Mason. “The machines are available with or without conveyors as well as with or without hot foil printers for identification and tracability”.
