PAC Machinery, a leader in the heat sealing and flexible packaging industry, announced today that they have completed the installation of additional bag-making capital equipment at their Converting Technology division in Milwaukee WI. Converting Technology General Manager, Greg Quinn said: "Our objective in investing in the new bag fabrication equipment is to accommodate the fast-growing demand for custom pre-opened bags on a roll and bags in a box used in mail order fulfillment packaging. Over the past two years, our new capital equipment program has boosted capacity by approximately 67%. As with all of our converting equipment, the new machines are engineered to make bags on a roll that are fully compatible with automatic baggers from Automated Packaging Systems®, and Sharp Packaging Systems®, as well as Rollbag™ brand automatic baggers from Clamco, a PAC Machinery company. "With the rapid adoption of online commerce, the demand for durable, mail order fulfillment packaging has grown exponentially," added Quinn.

Proprietary manufacturing solution
The new, bespoke bag-making machines were designed and built by Converting Technology in conjunction with Berea, Ohio-based equipment manufacturer Clamco. "Choosing to buy or build is often a tough decision to make, but since we found no stock bag fabrication equipment that totally met our requirements, the choice was academic. We had the engineering and manufacturing bandwidth to make our own custom machines, so that is what we decided to do," continued Greg Quinn. The new, larger manufacturing equipment will enable Converting Technology to stay ahead of the steadily increasing demand for order fulfillment packaging in general. To support increased bag fabrication capacity, additional printing equipment has been installed as well.
