At INDEX, Amotek
will present a packaging machine that packages various nonwoven products in film bags. The Amotek R 168 is suitable for feminine hygiene products, diapers, cotton pads and other products and can even be used for multipacks, depending on the pack size. The packages can be supplied with holes, reinforcements, handle areas, zippers and other features. Different bag shapes can also be managed. The machine produces on its own, the bags from a folded film, and offers the option to produce bags from a foil roll. The machine is easy to operate and can reach speeds up to 50 packages per minute.
Also on display will be the Amotek IS81, which was developed specifically for diaper packages. The servo-controlled system works with a patented Sierem stacker. The diapers are taken from the converters with an inline rate of up to 800 pieces per minute and packaged at a rate of up to 55 film bags per minute. The system can also be enhanced through the addition of various modules. These include the ability to produce packages with small counts or to load diapers manually into the packaging process.
