Sharp’s SX™ Continuous Roll Bagging System @adafruit #adafruit @SharpPackaging @PregisCorp

Sharp’s SX™ Continuous Roll Bagging System (video). Ladyada and Alicia making robot friend.

Runs bags 2″ to 11” wide and 4″ to 32” long
Technology advancements include 4.3” wide color touchscreen with Allen-Bradley Micro850 PLC

More efficient printing
– Prints unique, variable information on the first bag out
– Can print long and short production runs for a variety of
– 4″ wide print head for a larger print area
– Ribbon changes are simple, in less than half the time
of standard baggers
– Electronic ribbon out sensor prevents wasted ribbon.
The viewing window allows you to see the amount of
ribbon remaining on the roll.

Easier to use
– All electric design—just plug in and use the SX™
– Optional adjustable load shelf for easy loading for
bulky or heavy products
– Cross flow fan channels high volume, low pressure
ducted air for precise bag opening—no compressed
air required
– Auto-Rol™ tension system maintains consistent
web flow, eliminates breakage
– Clamshell design makes it easier to thread the bags
– Bag changes are fast, with touchscreen inputs

Maintenance is simple
– Off-the-shelf parts, typically saving over $2,000/year
– Fewer moving parts for less maintenance
– Plug and play wired components for easy changing
and ordering
– Teflon tape is easier and less expensive to replace
– Self diagnostics identify and correct problems quickly
– On-board PLC means less maintenance
