Note the integrated zipper which comes on all Schur®StarLight bags, offering the end-user vital reclosability.
The concept of premade bags, supplied on a unique string, gives consistency, simplicity, and stability in the packing process. It furthermore eliminates any machineability issues.
The efficient opening of the bag allows integration of automated equipment, such as a multihead weigher, counting systems, vibration devices etc.
The Schur®StarLight machine is engineered for packing both food and non-food products.
For manual filling, bag feed can take place automatically, with a variable stopping time per cycle.
Manual filling can be the obvious solution for smaller batch runs, for testing purposes, for seasonal or promotional activities. Also optimal for delicate items or items that are unevenly shaped.
Semi-automatic filling is performed partly automatically, partly by hand.
Bag intake, opening of the bag, filling, sealing, and a marking process or placing of a label, if any, are operations that can all take place both manually and automatically, or be combined in a semi-automatic workflow.
This is the quickest packing method, as products are placed totally by machinery, manual handling is not involved. The machine can be supplied with infeed filling, counting, and weighing equipment. Also integrated direct printing units or labelling units are possible options.
