Machines are supplied with premade pouches in a continuous daisy-chain. (fan folded in cartons)
The machine opens pouches for filling, seals & cuts them into individual units.
Main model is Schur Star 2040C with capacity up to 80ppm, depending on pouch size & product.
Pouch feeding can be:
(a)Continuously with a pre-selected feeding speed. (b)Intermittently with a pre-selected number of bags per cycle. (c)Automatically with a variable stopping time per cycle for manual or automatic filling.
Machine presents pouches to operators fully opened in a rectangle and keeps them open for ease of filling.
Machine facilitates the incorporation of multiple manual and/or automatic filling stations on the same machine.
Machine allows the use of different size pouches without the need for change parts.
Toolless quick change over between different pouch styles & sizes takes max. 5 minutes eg: zipper to non-zipper style takes 3 minutes.
