Schur®Star – the full-scale, comprehensive packaging machine Schur®Star is our full-scale, comprehensive packaging machine with high packing capacity. The machine is characterized by a large variety of attractive capabilities, and it packs practically any product into any bag solution in our product portfolio.
Schur®Star bags are pre-made of the material of your choice and enhanced with flexo print in up to 10 colours. All Schur®Star bags are supplied on a unique string, and this concept ensures a reliable and consistent packing process, whilst reducing downtime and improving production capacity. Very importantly, the concept of pre-made bags eliminates the risk of contamination, as the bags remain closed from production till the point of filling.
The machine is easily integrated into an existing production set-up and likewise easily combined with automatic filling equipment, like multi head weighers, snail pumps, piston pumps, or vibration separators.
The Schur®Star Packaging Machine requires no set-up time, and change-over between products, bag formats, or bag sizes takes place within a few minutes.
Filling can take place manually, semi- or fully automatically, both horizontally and vertically. Other options are double index filling and multiple filling positions, as the filling section can be extended up to 10 meters.
One characteristic advantage of the machine is the large fill opening in the entire width of the bag. This facilitates bagging of unevenly shaped products, free-flowing or sticky products, or products that have to be orientated in the bag. The large fill opening prevents contamination of the bag opening, which in some cases may cause welding issues.
The range of bag and pouch constructions that can be packed on the Schur®Star Packaging Machine is extremely comprehensive, and we continuously add creative solutions.
Our innovations are not only based on internal development projects, but also deriving from customer inquiries. Among the newest constructions that have proved attractive to the market, are the Schur®Star Zip-Pop bag and the Schur®Star Paper Bag.
