Weighpack Systems Inc: Horizontal form/fill/seal machine
WeighPack’s first H/F/F/S machine, the Swifty R2B, integrates bag making, filling, sealing, and printing in one automatic process.

Designed to handle bag sizes ranging from 3-in. to 8-in. wide and 4-in. to 11-in. long, the R2B runs with speeds of up to 120 bags per minute. Easily interfaced with any type of filling equipment, the Swifty R2B HFFS bagger bags snack foods, hardware, coffee, produce, pharmaceuticals and much more. Standard features include stainless steel construction, Schneider PLC controls and servo motor and Omron temperature controller. Options such as code dating, zipping device, film perforator and a notcher for easy tear-off are also available.
