New linear weighing & bagging machine collaboration

New linear weighing & bagging machine collaboration

Visitors to PPMA 2014 will be first to see the product of Automated Packaging Systems and Cotsworld Mechanical collaboration on stand C40. 
This latest collaboration retains all the core benefits of an Automated Packaging Systems bagger – increased flexibility, reduced labour requirements and significantly greater efficiency, as well as the additional benefit of accurate in-line weighing. Live on-stand demonstrations will give packers the chance to see first-hand how the new weigh and pack system can boost bagging rates and reduce give-away.
Alongside the bagging machine, Automated Packaging Systems will be demonstrating its range of clean void fill shipping solutions. Its AirPouch® air pillow system, for example, offers mail order operations a cost-effective and highly efficient alternative to loose fill polychips.
Visitors looking to increase productivity and reduce labour costs are invited to join us on stand C40 where our food specialist and AirPouch product manager will be on hand to help.

In detail… 

AirPouch® Express 3

AirPouch Express 3 produces void fill air pillows on-demand at speeds of more than 15 metres per minute and does not require compressed air to operate.  Material is fed into the system from a high yield box, cutting the number of changeovers and reducing storage and lifting. EZ-Tear perforations make it easier to separate pillows than alternative materials, reducing the risk of RSI. Air pillows are a cost-effective alternative to loose fill chips and can be manufactured from GeoTech® film for an environmentally sustainable void fill option.


FastWrap boasts on-demand protective packaging for a variety of applications and is ideal for wrapping, interleaving and block-and-brace applications. The air-filled bubbles and tubes secure and cushion goods in transit, reducing damages and returns. FastWrap’s superior sealing system ensures excellent air retention and knifeless technology eliminates the primary wear item found on other machines in its class. Capable of producing 1 metre of material every 3 seconds, the system can meet demanding packing requirements. FastWrap is now available in new 600mm width suitable for larger products.
