The pinch closing station for the bagging station Maia is suitable for dust-tight closures of pre-glued bags made of paper or woven polypropylene usable for automated processing. With the Bühler pinch closure the bags are glued instead of sewn. The result: cleanly closed bags with a flawless appearance and improved food safety, because there is no risk of thread bits falling into the product when the bags are opened. Part of the machinery is a swiveling cover which allows quick and easy access for cleaning and maintenance. The Bühler pinch closing station offers maximum flexibility. The open bags are safely guided through the process and therefore ensure top reliability and work safety. The machine can be adjusted quickly and without using any tools to different bag sizes, filling products and bag types made of paper or woven polypropylene.
