Miller Weldmaster unveils bag sealers for food packaging

Miller Weldmaster has launched the PS150 and PS400 packaging systems, designed to increase the speed and accuracy of bag sealing in food processing operations.

The machines, available from Ohio-based Miller Weldmaster, are intended to close bags with fold, step-seal, double-fold or slit-fold-fold seams. According to the manufacturer, both of the machines include features that minimize the production time needed for bag closing.

Also, the PS150 and PS400 systems are engineered to optimize speed, accuracy, and efficiency in bag sealing operations. The packaging systems reportedly are easily assimilated into either automatic filling lines or manual feed systems.

Packaging features

The PS150 and PS400 both feature a controlled line speed matching system, allowing for synchronized operation with the converting line. Folding systems are built onto each machine, and a quick change folding system is available for performing a wide range of fold sizes and types.

The PS150 and PS400 weld polywoven, thermoplastic, and paper bags without glue, eliminating any need (and the associated cost and mess) for use of consumables. Operators can use the digital controls for timely production initiation, and a recipe management system facilitates access to multiple batch options.

Bagging dry products

The PS150 and PS400 are geared toward producers of dry, free-flowing products. Each system can be customized to best fit the needs of a particular operation.

The PS150 system is a top-closing model designed for simple integration into existing packaging lines. The PS400 machine can be integrated with automatic filling line and/or manual feed systems.
