Pregis has launched its Sharp Packaging Systems MAX-PRO 24 continuous bagging system. This latest model in the MAX-PRO line can handle a wider range of products and bag sizes, making it suitable for fulfillment operations with a broad e-commerce offering.
The MAX-PRO 24 includes automated technology, new web handling features that simplify operations and automated pass-through settings, resulting in lower operating costs. Predictive maintenance via Pregis’ Maxwell intelligent interface is designed to enable trouble-free operation. The system also includes a bag threading system and a user-friendly HMI control panel that simplifies operation and guides troubleshooting.
The MAX-PRO 24 has a small footprint, but can accommodate bags that are up to 24-inches wide and 36-inches long. It handles products that weigh up to 10 lb. Its size allows the machine to fit into existing packaging lines while taking up less floor space. Additionally, its label-side-up, multiple-exit conveyor system allows bags to leave the machine to the left, right, or rear, so it can be added into existing production lines more easily.
The MAX-PRO 24 has a number of features that contribute toward reducing packaging costs. Zebra thermal printers permit direct printing onto packages for barcodes, graphics, and alphanumeric fonts. In order to maximize ribbon usage, reduced spacing between impressions has been incorporated, plus printing with alternative registrations and adjusting impression placements.
