Automated Packaging Systems Partners with Ergocon Solutions to Introduce a New Towel Inspection and Packaging System
Automated Packaging Systems and Ergocon Solutions have introduced a fully integrated towel inspection and packaging system for the textile service industry that packages up to 7000 towels per hour.
Alex Donovan, GM for Ergocon claims, “The Ergocon Towel Inspection and Packaging System is the industry’s fastest and most cost-effective solution for inspecting, counting and packaging towels."
March 12, 2014 - STREETSBORO, OH – Automated Packaging Systems, the world leader in high-reliability bag packaging systems, has partnered with Ergocon Solutions to present a fully integrated towel inspection and packaging system for the textile service industry. Ergocon has designed and manufactured a towel inspection and packaging system that works with an Autobag® AB 255™ wide bagger to package up to 7000 towels per hour.
This new Ergocon Towel Inspection and Packaging System is designed for high productivity bagging of cleaned bar, shop and microfiber towels, as well as washcloths, gloves and other industrial laundered items. The Ergocon System uses its automatic feed system to set the pace of production so that daily output is more predictable than systems hand-fed by an operator. The automatic feed system paired with the optional Laser Level Control, for the first time ever, makes it possible to bag towels without an operator when inspection is not required. Variable speed controls enable the system to run fast for high-production rates, or slower for items that require more stringent inspection.
Overview of Operation: The bulk feed bin can hold up to 240 pounds and is just 34 inches high for easy loading by hand, sling or lift table. Operators observe a continuous flow of towels as they come across an inspection conveyor, easily removing any that should be rejected. After inspection, towels pass across a counting eye and then into a pre-opened bag, where the Autobag AB 255 automatically seals the bag when the final count is reached. The Autobag system simultaneously delivers the bagged towels to a takeaway conveyor for distribution, while automatically opening and staging the next bag for packaging. During the bag cycling process, the system continues to deliver towels to the inspection work station where the operator works without interruption. An operator-friendly touch screen control panel makes it easy to move between up to 14 different programs for various products and counts.
