EC12

Teabag packing machine with naked teabag.

This model is designed for packing tea automatically in filter paper teabags, with thread and tag. High performance, constant dosage, extreme simplicity and mechanical sturdiness are the most outstanding features of this Packer, result of our long experience in automatic equipments. Its design allows the operation and maintenance by normally trained technical personnel.

AUTOMATIC CARTONING WITHOUT ENVELOPE
Thread and tag are wound around the bags, which enter to the final stage where they are grouped in counts that are neatly and automatically placed in boxes that can hold 1, 2 or 4 rows.

FORMING AND FILLING OF THE TEA BAG
The single chamber tea bag is formed from a roll of heatsealable filter paper, which is folded lengthwise and then closed on three sides by the sealing rollers. The previously dosified product is introduced simultaneously.
The tags, printed only on one side, are cut two at a time and folded over the thread, ensuring their attachment to it with a drop of vinylic glue.
The other end of the thread is joined to the tea bag during the sealing procedure, eliminating the traditional metal staples.

BOX PRESENTATION
The EC12 Packer with Automatic Cartoning allows the grouping of teabags in counts to be orderly placed in boxes apt to contain 1; 2 or 4 rows.
