Snack food packing solutions with high flexibility and fast payback

21 July 2014

Ishida Europe has developed a range of entry-level weigher/bagmaker combination units which offer an economic, medium speed solution for food manufacturers.

Ishida's new combination units deliver a fast payback on a reduced investment cost while ensuring consistent weights, pack quality and seal integrity.

As shown on Ishida’s stand at Interpack in May 2014, the Ishida First Range comprises either a 10 or 14 head CCW-SE economy multihead weigher with an intermittent motion Astro-S-103 bagmaker or a 14-head economy weigher with a rotary motion Atlas-113 packaging machine.

While the Atlas option is ideal for handling pillow bags at speeds of up to 85 bpm, the Astro will usually be specified for speeds up to 70 bpm, offering in addition to pillow bags also gusseted and block bottom bag formats with minimum change parts and simple machine maintenance.

Both the Atlas and Astro bagmakers feature servo-motors and software controlled variable seal time, jaw temperature and pressure that allow the handling of many film types, including standard, metallised, recyclable and biodegradable.

Stripping plates clear the seal area before sealing which ensures good pack quality, while servo driven and vacuum assisted pull down belts enable accurate and consistent bag lengths to maximise film use and optimise pack presentation.

A user-friendly colour touch screen allows easy operation, self-diagnostics and simple and rapid transfers between bag types and film, all of which help to minimise downtime.
