Formost Fuji Corporation: Dual-lane horizontal bagger

Formost Packaging Machines (Woodinville, WA) designed the new GT-4 dual-lane horizontal bagger with 2 product lanes operating simultaneously. Machine operates at speeds to 50 cycles/min.

If desired the inboard product lane may be operated independently. A specially designed transfer station conveys product from the infeed conveyor into position in the 2 product lanes. Positive product control is achieved with specially designed paddles that move products into bags with a smooth hand-like motion to greatly reduce product damage. Machine features a 4-tray loose bag table system. During a bag table change where a table loaded with a fresh wicket of bags replaces an empty table the machine automatically suspends product feeding to the affected lane only.
