Merello, part of Leggett & Platt’s Global Systems Group, offers the ME–305, which automatically wraps pillows and cushions sized between 16–by–16 inches or 43–by–32 inches at a rate of eight per minute.
The machine forms a tube–style bag from a polyethylene roll and requires no lateral sealing. Changing the polyethylene roll is “fast and easy” and different sizes can be used without adjustment, according to the company. Cuts are made by a maintenance–free, smokeless cold blade. A touch–screen PLC control displays input parameters and cycle information.
An optional video jet thermal printer can print product data and bar codes directly on finished package.
