CMD Corp. of Appleton, Wisc., demonstrated new high-speed bag converting technology at NPE 2015. The company made three types of trash bags on rolls: wave-top, drawtape and open-mouth. The bags were sorted and packed by robotic automation.
For drawtape bags, the CMD Global Drawtape System does bag sealing, hem insertion and bag separation by perforation. A hydraulic floor lift enables the use of large rolls and longer time between roll changes. Film embossers can be integrated.
For die-cut (wave-top) bags, the CMD Rotary Die Cut System is easy to move in and out of bag converting lines. Converters can offer bags that are easy to close and carry in an integrated process. Touchscreen operation makes the unit easy to operate.
For overlapping bags on rolls, the CMG Global High-Speed Bag Winder winds up bags on overlapped, banded rolls for one-at-a-time dispensing. Tail-glue and roll labeling (banding) options are available.
The above equipment can run up to 600 feet per minute.
For open mouth (bottom sealed) bags, the CMD 864 global Bag Machine and Winder offers high-out-put production of bags on a roll. It can run up to 450 feet per minute. Proprietary CMD continuous-motion sealing technology allows high production rates. Operation and maintenance is made simple because of a universal icon-based touchscreen operation, shortened web path and simple thread-up and startup.
CMD also had developed robotic packaging automation, integrating a Yamaha SCARA robot with its Model 700RPS, which did automatic inspection, sorting and packing the three bag-on-a roll products at CMD's booth during NPE 2015.
