Packaging Solution for Stand-up Bags in Ship-Ready Boxes

February 12, 2015

Eagle Packaging Machinery teamed up with WeighPack Systems to custom build a complete packaging solution to fill and seal stand-up pouches, erect, load, and seal cases, then palletize for ship-ready containers. From product to pallet, this fully automated system solution is designed to maximize overall productivity while reducing labor cost.

Alongside WeighPack’s auger filler and horizontal bagger, the system consists of Eagle’s Boxxer T12 case erector, automatic drop packer, EZ-Tape case sealer, and Z.Zag palletizer.

The Boxxer T12 erects and tapes 12 cases per minute, then transfers to the box indexing machine. The box indexer ensures cases are ready and waiting for the signal that the bags can be loaded. While cases are formed and indexed, product is weighed and filled into stand-up pouches. Bags are then indexed and arranged in alternating patterns in preparation for case loading. Once the case is in position bags are dropped directly into the case. The full box is then transferred to the EZ-Tape case sealer. Once the sealed case exits the system, it is picked up by the Z.Zag palletizer and transferred to a pallet ready for shipping.

This complete automated solution reduces manual labor and improves efficiency. It is equipped with user-friendly controls. The operator simply presses start and picks up the ship-ready case from the pallet.
