Sharp Packaging Systems: Semi-automatic bagging system

Featuring a wider maximum bag width and full-color touchscreen, Sharp Packaging Systems’ new SX tabletop semi-automatic bagging machine prints the address onto the bag, then opens and seals it once the product is inserted.

Improvements include a completely new control architecture and a full color, 4.3-in. wide touchscreen. The maximum bag width has increased from 9-in. to 11-in., and all machines have an HMI, plus an Allen-Bradley Micro850 PLC. Like all Sharp machines, parts are nonproprietary, available off-the-shelf.

The SX machine is 10% smaller and 30% lighter, and is suitable for applications where products are inserted into bags by hand. The SX includes an upgraded deluxe film feed sensor that runs all types and colors of bags. Its print engine is also upgraded to DataMax A-Class Mark II for high performance and reliability. Recommended applications for the SX machine include packaging for fulfillment, injection molding, medical, parts and retail.
