Automated Packaging Systems has introduced the Autobag 850S Mail Order Fulfillment Bagger, a mail order fulfillment system with a small footprint.
The Autobag 850S runs mail bags up to 22 inches wide. Bag opening technology grabs and securely grips the bag in load-ready position, creating a pass-through up to 11 in. x 11 in., making it suitable for bulky or multi-item orders. This arrangement also enables the use of a smaller, more completely filled bag to reduce material costs.
An AutoTouch control screen provides quick access to job setup parameters, on-board diagnostics, data retrieval, performance monitoring, and a help system with operator tutorials.
A compact thermal transfer imprinter is positioned in line with the next bag to be loaded and prints high resolution graphics, text, bar codes, and personalized data directly onto the bag, eliminating the cost of printing and affixing separate shipping labels. The Autobag 850S fully integrates with customer databases for personalized 1:1 mail order fulfillment packing and shipping.
Bag size changeovers can be accomplished in less than five minutes with simplified threading and a new tension control system that automatically centers and monitors the film throughout the bagging process. A modular bag storage shelf built into the bagger conveniently supports genuine Autobag pre-opened bag-in-box materials.
