Ishida Europe has launched a new Flexible Strip Pack Applicator (F-SPA) that produces ready-to display strips of bagged products, providing an attractive hanging display for retailers.
Ideal for snacks and confectionery but also perfectly applicable for other food and even non-food products, the new Strip Pack Applicator is easy to operate and offers an innovative and convenient way for retailers to market their products and special promotions.
The Strip Pack Applicator has the flexibility to link up with any bagmaker for automatic production and thus to operate as an integrated component of an automatic packing line, or to be used as a stand alone unit with bags hand-fed by an operator.
This allows the food bags to be quality controlled (using checkweighing, metal detection, seal testing or X-ray inspection) before they are assembled into strips, reducing the amount of waste through having to discard a whole strip of bags because one of the bags failed at the quality control stage.
Mix and match strip packaging of different products is another option thanks to the flexibility of semi-automatic operation with hand feeding of bags.
Ishida’s new Flexible Strip Pack Applicator offers speeds of up to 80 bags a minute, takes bags weighing up to 100g and the number of bags on each strip is fully adjustable. Bags can also be reattached after removal using Ishida’s unique strip-pack tape.
