||The traditional method to transport the pouches has always been by means of a fixed gripper beam and a second walking gripper beam that 'walk' the pouches through the filling stations of the machine.
BOSSAR PACKAGING recognizes that this is the critical part of the machine and has made strides to improve the performance of this system in its new generation of machines. These improvements have been extended to the rest of our machinery range and the walking beam design today offers improved performance via higher precision control of the pouches and lower maintenance experience, eliminating the problems seen in other systems.
The BOSSAR walking beam can be easily removed and replaced with a pre-assembled change set for rapid pouch format changeovers.
Another transport mechanism unique to BOSSAR PACKAGING is found in the GMB® models. This transport system, which is a BOSSAR patented design, consists of grippers mounted on an intermittent motion chain or linear carrousel system.
The mounting mechanism for the grippers is designed to withstand up to 5kg of weight and the design allows the pouch to remain in the same set of grippers throughout the process of pouch opening, pouch filling and pouch sealing before releasing the pouch to the packing area.
