World’s fastest bagmaker?

15 October 2017

Ishida has launched what it believes is the world’s fastest vertical form fill sealing (VFFS) bagmaker. 

The Inspira bagmaker is available in intermittent and rotary motion versions, with top production speeds of 120 bags per minute for the intermittent version and in excess of 200 bags per minute for the rotary version. At the same time the machine is said to be able deliver an Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in excess of 99%.

The Inspira features enhanced motor and drive technology that improves positional jaw control at the point of sealing.  For consistent pack quality, Ishida’s rotary back seal band technology now has an enhanced level of automation to reduce the risk of human error.  

Features include automated centring and tension adjustment of the film, auto-splice film management and new automated air-fill technology which optimises pack thickness for downstream automated case packing. By shortening the path of the film from printer to sealing jaw, the design also helps to reduce film waste.

The new models offer a wider choice of bag sizes with the minimum bag width reduced to 50mm, along with a wider choice of film reel weights, up to a maximum of 50kg.The bagmaker can store a total of 500 pre-sets for auto-changing  all relevant settings, as well as bringing integrated Ishida equipment into line to speed up changeovers.

The Inspira forms part of Ishida’s market-leading iTPS (integrated Total Packing System) which supports integrated operation with Ishida multihead weighers, throat metal detectors, printers, sealtesters, checkweighers and case packers to provide a complete snacks packing solution to maximise line efficiencies.
