SPOTLIGHT ON THE BANDRITE SEALER WITH INTEGRATED HP PRINTER

For sealing bagged fresh food, you need an easy-to-use and reliable band sealer.  And with the rise of product traceability requirements, you also need an accurate timestamp that works with your system.

Atlantic has taken the success of PackRite’s BandRite sealer and integrated a compact HP Printer to bring you a machine that meets both of these challenges.

Here are some of the features of the BandRite Sealer from Atlantic:

  • USDA approved for food applications
  • Heat seals polyethylene and barrier films
  • Real-time product traceability  with time and date stamp
  • Clear, sharp coding and marking

The BandRite allows you to change from one type of bag or seal to another with virtually no machine down time. And maintenance is easy with a tilt-away drive system that eliminates the need for tools in a sealing band change.

Code Tech TIJ Printers

Spotlight on Code Tech TIJ Printers

When it comes to marking and coding in your processing environment, Atlantic offers a Code Tech thermal ink jet (TIJ) system that rivals any continuous ink jet (CIJ) you may have.

Our Code Tech printers are:

IP65 rated
Washdown Ready
No Mess
No Maintenance
Easy to Use

These compact, click-and-go printers use solvent based ink – just like the CIJ printers – that prints on non-porous materials including glass, plastic, and metal. With Code Tech systems, the ink is contained within one single cartridge so every time you click in a new cartridge, you get a new printer.  And that’s with zero downtime.

Plus, you eliminate the need and the costs associated with disposing of hazardous materials in the plant.

The stainless steel washdown printers are IP65 rated and ideal for processing environments. Our Atlantic technicians are skilled at integrating these compact printers with your VFFS machines to make them work with your unique setup. The washdown units print on Cryovac, Bemis and other barrier films.

Pearson Bag Inserter

Pearson Bag Inserter

Spotlight on Pearson Bag Inserters

Atlantic has been working in the food processing industry for over 40 years, servicing our customers with materials, equipment, and service that helps keep your production running smoothly, safely, and efficiently.

Over all these decades, we’ve become experts in installing and servicing automated packaging equipment designed specifically for this industry.

In Our Spotlight on Equipment series, we wanted to share with you some of the machines that can make a tremendous difference in your packaging operation.

Today, our focus is on Pearson’s line of automated bag inserters.  Pearson is a trusted partner of ours and we recommend their equipment based on our own extensive experience working with them over the years. They are reliable, user-friendly, and get the job done.

Pearson Bag Inserters open, insert, and cuff plastic bags from roll stock into a wide variety of corrugated cases at speeds up to 18 cases per minute.

The machine uses a mandrel to drive the bag down inside the case and ensure it’s correctly inserted every time, with the proper outer bag cuff, so it maintains position during bulk loading and subsequent uncuffing / sealing.

As for materials, it requires pre-perforated & gusseted roll stock to ensure a consistent, quality seal every time with less machine maintenance and lower material costs.

Pearson’s User Centric Design is standard on these machines, with an optimized graphic and mechanical interface that assists operators and technicians to independently operate and maintain the equipment.

This machine is on display and operational at Atlantic’s Packaging Solution Center in Charlotte, NC.  We invite you to schedule a time to visit the Center and see the Pearson bagger, as well as other machines that integrate with it to create a fully automated packing line.
