WeighPack’s sanitary continuous bagger

WeighPack’s VF-1200 continuous motion vertical bagger has now been released in a sanitary version, for high pressure washdown needs. The bagger has been engineered for wet, cold and harsh environments where traditional vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) machines may struggle.

Constructed in stainless steel with IP standards for motors, heating elements, thermocouples, electronics, touch screens and cabinets, the VF-1200 offers its customers a packaging machine that has been sanitised to the highest standards.

“We feel strongly that our industry requires more solutions for high sanitary washdown to help mitigate any risks of cross contamination or bacterial growth as a result of poor cleaning to ensure that the consumer remains safe,” says Nicholas Taraborelli, Vice President of WeighPack.

The VF-1200 can handle multiple packaging formats and produces a wide range of package sizes providing flexibility for retail and club size packaging for industries ranging from snack foods, confectionery, frozen foods, cheese and seafood. The continuous motion bagger features vertical sealing bars that operate continuously in motion, so the film does not need to stop to receive its vertical seal – providing an advantage over VFFS with intermittent motion seal bars which open and close in full sequence, resulting in lower production rates.

Engineered with an open-frame design for easy operator access, the continuous motion bagger features stainless steel construction, vacuum pull belts, second film roll support, film splice table, Omron motion controller and servos, a 15-inch colour touchscreen and toolless removable vertical seal bar, horizontal jaws and forming shoulder.
