Squid Ink debuts automatic bag closure machine

Squid Ink partners with Kwik Lok to release the 872 automatic bag closure machine and printer.

Squid Ink Manufacturing partnered with Kwik Lok Corporation to release the new 905A CoPilot UV LED Printer. The 905A CoPilot UV LED is designed to be attached to the Kwik Lok 872 automatic bag closing machine, using the CoPilot printer and UV LED curing system built by Squid Ink Manufacturing. According to the company, the new system offers immediate cure time and clean codes on the Kwik Lok bag closure, resulting in a low maintenance system.

The CoPilot UV LED curing and printing system from Squid Ink offers accurate and consistent UV curing. UV cure ink is a non-drying, minimal maintenance ink cured by LED light. This instant LED curing ink is impervious to environmental factors such as sunlight, water, moisture, and temperature.

The Kwik Lok® 872 Automatic Bag Closing Machine enables the packager to close and label bagged packages with one machine at speeds as high as 105 bags per minute. The system will close a wide range of product size variations. Striplok closures are available in different closure opening sizes to accommodate a range of bag widths and film thicknesses. The 872 features an operating panel for speed control (0 to 105 bags/min), a shift counter, lifetime counter, and a manual cycle button.

The Kwik Lok 905A CoPilot UV LED is available now through Kwik Lok’s network of authorized distributors.
