Detailed Equipment Information
M&R's AB-9000 high-speed Automatic Bagger quickly pays for itself by streamlining the bagging process, eliminating costly, inefficient manual bagging and sealing. In fact, when coupled with M&R's K-950 folder, a single operator can fold and bag up to one-thousand garments per hour. That's far faster than two operators could fold and bag using traditional methods. The AB-9000 can bag and seal up to 18 roll-fed bags per minute, and it's capable of processing bag sizes ranging from 10 x 13 cm (4" x 5") to 30 x 38 cm (12" x 15"). The AB-9000‘s touchscreen control center tracks productivity, including bags-per-minute/hour and production rates for each job. M&R's Job Recall™ feature stores job data that can be recalled for similar and repeat runs. The control center also includes machine diagnostics and can be electronically linked to many M&R automatic folding machines to create a fully automatic folding/bagging/sealing system. For example, the AB-9000 has an interlink that connects to M&R's K-950 folder. When the AB-9000 pauses at the end of a job, it sends a signal to the K-950 to stop folding. As soon as the AB-9000 is programmed to start a new job, it signals the K-950 to start folding again.
Designed for ease of operation and maintenance, the AB-9000 offers automatic bag threading for fast, easy setup and changeover. The servo-motor bag-drive system maximizes productivity with high-speed bag feeding and precise bag placement. The infeed chute uses a simple slide-and-lock mechanism to tailor the width of the chute to the width of the product. The multi-belt/pinch roller bag-web drive system holds the web securely and maintains a constant position for precise product loading and accurate sealing. The removable synchronized bag deflator eliminates excess air to give the final product a clean, attractive appearance. Although the sealing mechanism is completely enclosed during operation, a clear acrylic window allows easy viewing of the sealing process for quick adjustments. Compact, affordable, and able to handle bags of varying dimensions, AB-9000 improves bagging efficiency by reducing labor costs and increasing throughput.
