Details

From a roll of polyethylene film the Flexim-21 bag inserter automatically measures, cuts and inserts bags into cases, crates, trays, tins, pails or porex cases. For every single case height, the Flexim-21 provides the appropriate bag length, thus reducing film wastage. It uses the parent rolls produced by the film extruders and by eliminating the standard bag making cost of pre-made bags it also offers a cost saving opportunity.
 
The Flexim-21 Bag inserter is designed for a wide variety of bulk products which require packing into lined cases (from 5 to 30kg), including semi-liquids, frozen foods, caps and closures, frozen bread, powder and granulates, confectionary, dried fruit, pasta, and preforms.

Potential Benefits

The main environmental advantage of this technology is reduced film usage and wastage. The system uses up to 17% less PE film than other comparable bag-in-box machines using pre-made bags.
 
From an economic viewpoint, eliminating the bag making stage can save up to 15% on manufacturing expenses.
