To reach required speeds product travel time between the scale and bagger has been dramatically reduced. Product spiraling has been eliminated with individual lane chutes, and a catch box system allows the product to be double staged—increasing production rates by 40%, and cycling at more than 60 bags per minute of pita chips in increments of 200 grams. The VS bagger automatically positions a pre-made wicketed bag, opens it and waits for product. After loading, the VS Bagger side shifts the bag to the sealer, positions a new bag and repeats the cycle.
