Ishida has launched a snacks bagmaker which the company says is the world’s fastest VFFS bagmaker while delivering the highest levels of productivity performance, system efficiency and pack quality, along with reduced environmental impact and improved operator working conditions. The new Inspira bagmaker is available in both intermittent and rotary motion versions, with top production speeds of 120 bags per minute for the intermittent version and in excess of 200 bags per minute for the rotary version. At the same time it is able to deliver an Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in excess of 99%.

The Inspira features enhanced motor and drive technology that improves positional jaw control at the point of sealing. For consistent pack quality, Ishida’s rotary back seal band technology, which ensures excellent pack back seals, has been further enhanced by an increased level of automation which reduces the risk of human error.

Features include automated centring and tension adjustment of the film, auto-splice film management and new automated air-fill technology which optimises pack thickness for downstream automated case packing. By shortening the path of the film from printer to sealing jaw, the new design also helps to further reduce film waste.

The new models offer a wider choice of bag sizes with the minimum bag width reduced to 50mm, along with a wider choice of film reel weights, up to a maximum of 50kg.

A large 15.3” touchscreen provides an intuitive HMI (Human-Machine Interface) as part of an enhanced intelligent ‘visual management’ strategy designed to improve operator productivity. This ensures ease of set-up with various automatic adjustment functions, such as positioning of the printer, former roller adjustment, N2 gas flow management and film roll centring, synchronised with the relevant product recipe settings to eliminate operator errors.

The bagmaker can store a total of 500 pre-sets for auto-changing  all relevant settings, as well as bringing integrated Ishida equipment into line, which further speeds up changeovers.

The Inspira features a new, open construction, which allows quick and easy access for product changeovers and maintenance.  The 304 stainless steel construction minimises the risk of corrosion which can be caused by a combination of  constant exposure to seasoning and challenging cleaning regimes.

The bagmaker also incorporates the latest technologies to reduce energy and air consumption for an improved environmental profile.  In the intermittent motion model, for example, power consumption has been reduced by 24.8% in standby mode and by 16.8% during operation. A noise reduction of 20.7db during production provides greater comfort for operators.

The Inspira forms part of Ishida’s market-leading iTPS (integrated Total Packing System) which supports integrated operation with Ishida multihead weighers, throat metal detectors, printers, sealtesters, checkweighers and case packers to provide a complete snacks packing solution that maximises line efficiencies and pack quality.
