SYMACH Unveils New FillStar Bag Filling Machine at Victam 2015

Tuesday, Jun 09, 2015

SYMACH,  a  part  of  Thiele Technologies, Inc. , will proudly introduce a brand new,  versatile bag filling machine – the FillStar – at Victam 2015 held June 9-11 in Cologne, Germany.

The  FillStar  is  a  part  of  Thiele’s  Star  Series  bagger  line  which  features machines  designed  for  bagging  all  types  of  free-flowing  product  using laminated  poly-woven,  polyethylene  and  paper  open-mouth  bags.    Other Star Series baggers include the UltraStar and the OmniStar.   
The  FillStar  selects  empty  bags  from  a  bag  magazine,  opens  the  bags  and automatically places them onto the filling spout for filling from an overhead scale  or  filling  device.    Bags  are  presented  under  the  spout  by  mechanical clamps  which  consistently  maintain  the  form  of  the  flat  bag  (including  the gusset) until the bag is transported through the closing station.
Handling bag sizes ranging from 4kg to 50kg, the FillStar offers speeds of 20 bags per minute (using 25kg / bag) which totals more than 30 tons of product per hour.  It also features high-speed automatic changeover for recipe changes, an intuitive operator interface that provides alarms and maintenance notices, as well as remote online support capabilities.   
Each element of the FillStar is thoughtfully designed and selected.  The unique universal filling spout guarantees the maximum opening of the spout allowing for a large range of bag sizes for maximum product throughput.  Constructed with FDA-approved high density polyethylene, it offers excellent sliding properties along with high impact strength and good wear resistance due to its low coefficient of friction.  The modular design of the machine allows the integration and option of a variety closing stations – including sewing, sealing and pinch-top - in the main frame.
Established  more  than  a  decade  ago,  SYMACH  has  been  building  innovative,  quality  palletizing  solutions  for  customers  in  a variety of industries worldwide. With many successful past installations, SYMACH has tripled in size during that time.   SYMACH joined Thiele Technologies, a division of Barry-Wehmiller Companies, Inc., in March of 2014.  Thiele is a well-balanced supplier of packaging machinery systems and solutions, providing a full complement of equipment for high-speed: bag filling and palletizing, case  packaging  and  palletizing,  cartoning,  bundling,  and  placing/feeding  solutions.    Hudson-Sharp,  which  offers  pre-made  bag and pouch equipment, is also a Thiele Technologies company.
