Customer demand for faster, more-versatile bulk bagging has inspired Pacepacker Services to launch a new high-speed bagging line called FastPac.

The first machine in the FastPac range is an upgraded sack placer, which can help boost the number of bags packed per minute by up to 20%, offering a new top speed of 16–17bags/min. This machine will be unveiled at PPMA.

FastPac can handle a range of sacks, including those made from difficult-to-pick-up materials such as hessian and net. This follows a growth in demand for these bags, in particular from Pacepacker’s European customers and UK exporters packing bags of produce, pulses, rice and coffee beans in bags weighing 25kg and above.

The added versatility and speed also makes the new range suitable for bulk solids handling, food packers and contract packers alike.

“Our new FastPac range opens up the possibility of automating many bulk bagging operations that have traditionally remained manual or required more expensive, non-standard sacks to enable the use of suction cups,”​ says Pacepacker’s business development manager Paul Wilkinson.
