Eliminating the need to purchase pre-made bags, the Swifty R2B uses laminated roll stock film to create a variety of different pouch styles including flat-bottom, stand-up, 3-sided seal and 4-sided seal bags with or without zipper closures. 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.
