New bag inserter & uncuffer from WeighPack

Designed to fully automate the manual processes of bag-in-box systems

New bag inserter & uncuffer from WeighPack
The BI 600 automatic bag inserter and BU 600 automatic bag uncuffer.

WeighPack has launched two advanced packaging machines designed to automate the bulk bagging process. The BI 600 automatic bag inserter and BU 600 automatic bag uncuffer replace the manual insertion of bags into cases and the manual uncuffing and sealing of those bags prior to the closing of the cases.  

Perfect for preparing bulk quantities of products such as pet food, frozen food, snacks, and wrapped candy for shipping, these units are designed to fit seamlessly into a bulk bag filling line  with a case erector, bulk weigh filler, and case sealer, completing a fully automated system that  forms, fills and seals cases, trays and bins, and the bulk-sized bags within them. 

The BI 600 bag inserter dispenses film on a roll, cuts, seals, and then inserts the bag into a case. Once the product is weighed and filled, the case passes to the BU 600 bag uncuffer.  The bag is then uncuffed from the case and folded over the product before the box is conveyed to the next phase of the packaging process. Bag sealing and vacuum assemblies are also available. 

The BI 600 accepts 1 – 4mil film in roll widths up to 650mm and provides impulse sealing for  leakproof polyethylene or laminated bags. The BU600 also accepts 1 – 4mil film with a bag fold  over up to 610mm. Both units feature 304 stainless steel frames, SMC pneumatics, Omron servo  motors with absolute encoders, Hiwin linear bearings, and 18-inch industrial PC panels.  

WeighPack can customize a complete bulk bagging system to meet any weighing, filling, case erecting and case sealing need. Their V25 bulk weigh filler as well as the Boxxer case erector and EZ Tape case sealer from sister brand, EndFlex, are commonly combined with the EndFlex’ Z.Zag robotic palletizer to fully automate the bulk bagging process.  

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
