Bags & Pouches
Massman Automation has a number of effective case packing solutions for handling bagged or flexible pouch products.
Massman Automation can implement a variety of different bag or flexible pouch handling infeed designs depending upon the infeed speed and the size of the package. The bagged or flexible pouch product can be drop-packed in slower speed applications, vacuum-picked with a vacuum gantry load system, or robotically picked with a flex-picker robot for higher speed applications. These options offer ways to achieve the desired pack pattern in a wraparound case, RSC knock-down case, harness style case, or tray.
