Feeding of Flat Pouches & Polybags
AT Info offers the Rotech RF Pouch system for the automatic printing, labeling and coding of resealable pouches, polybags and asymmetric products that are used in the Food industry and much more.
Using vacuum (pick and place) technology, the RF Pouch can transport a wide range of pouches and other flexible packaging that a regular friction feeder cannot handle. The system picks a product from a stack, places it onto a conveyor for printing and/or labeling before transferring the marked pack neatly onto another stack, ready for collection.
Continuous operation of the feeder gives very high throughput rates at deceptively low machine speeds. Consider these and other benefits to the end customer:
- Unique feeding system for flexible packaging and zipper pouches
- Versatile vacuum cups with quick adjustment, minimizing downtime
- Fitted with Markoprint® coding/labeling technology as well as post-print inspection systems
When using pre-made pouches or trying to code onto filled packs, online coding can become problematic. In these situations, an offline coding system is preferable from both an efficiency and code quality perspective. Pouches can be printed offline before they are filled and brought to the production line ready printed. Coding the pouch in its flat form results in a consistently clear, perfectly positioned code.
