Key Features

  • Handles large packages with 24" x 12" opening for shoe and boot boxes
  • Faster, with huge gains in throughput
  • Features a drop shelf for fast and easy bag changeovers
Overview

The Sharp Max 24 Continuous Roll Bagging System is the industry leading machine, accommodating boot boxes, and other larger items at a 24" maximum width.

For convenience, Sharp's E-Z Bags feed though the machine, are opened, filled with product, then sealed. With the new improved exit conveyor, packages exit "label side up" to facilitate easy sorting and scanning, perfect for most markets - automotive, beauty, candy, electronics, food, fulfillment, hardware, medical, parts, retail, etc.

The bagger has faster throughput, with an easily adjustable seal flattener, a job recall that saves all parameters, a featured drop shelf for fast and easy bag change overs, reduced cycle times with a lighter weight aluminum jab and a quick realignment with heavy-duty drive fingers.

Save costs with the Max 24. The machine reduces scrap and material costs with its movable printing head and with simple adjustments, thermal ribbon usage can be reduced as much as 90%. With the longer lasting heat sealing mechanism and the of-the-shelf parts, the bagger can save costs in the long term.

The Max 24 uses Sharp's E-Z Bags with options for General Purpose, Xtreme Poly, Ultra, HD Mailer, Packaging High Density (SPHD), Polypropylene, Military Specification Film, Gamma Patient, Metalized Barrier Film, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), Modified Atmospheric Packaging (MAP), Sharp’s Non-Scratch Film, E-Z Stat™ (Anti-Static) and Vapor Corrosive Inhibitor (VCI).

Features
Sharp® MAX 24™ Features:
  • Handles large packages with 24" x 12" opening for shoe and boot boxes
  • Faster, with huge gains in throughput
  • Features a drop shelf for fast and easy bag changeovers
  • Improved exit conveyor—Packages exit with the label side up to facilitate sortation and scanning
    Faster Printing
  • Optional Datamax® thermal transfer printer for printing bar codes, graphics and alphanumeric fonts directly onto the package
  • Set moveable printing head to precise positions, based on package size, to print bags in order, eliminating queuing and reducing scrap and material cost
  • Reduce thermal ribbon usage as much as 90% with reduced spacing between impressions, printing with alternative registrations, and adjusting impression placements to increase ribbon usage
    Cutting Edge Technology
  • Includes HMI, a networkable touchscreen PC running Windows 7 embedded plus an Allen-Bradley Micrologix 1400 PLC from Rockwell Automation
  • Touchscreen is a 12.1" TFT (thin film transistor) technology, including a PC with Windows 7
  • Run Windows labeling software, create labels on the PC, save, then add it to a particular job, so the label format is saved as part of the job
  • Includes a high speed counter, pulse train output and network capabilities
    More Efficient Operation
  • Jaw is aluminum, so less mass, lower inertia, faster movement, and cycle times decrease
  • Heavy duty drive fingers don’t bend even with tugging at bags, so no need to realign
  • Proximity sensor is inside the jaw, protecting the magnet field, improving operation in dirty environments
  • Constantly heated sealing mechanism offers a longer life than impulse mechanisms
  • Controls for the printer are viewed directly on the bagger HMI, so it’s not necessary to manage multiple monitors or displays for the bagger and printing system
  • Control, recall stored labels or even create labels directly on the single HMI
  • Includes detailed ribbon consumption tools with a gauge that displays how much ribbon remains
    Versatility in Loading
  • Entire machine moves up or down, adjusting to a wide range of heights
  • 90˚ rotation capabilities for horizontal loading for heavy or stuffable products
    Access Data Anywhere
  • HMI, printer and PLC can be networked, so they can be accessed at any time from almost anywhere
  • Use remote label printing, production reporting and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) control
    Easy Maintenance
  • Off-the-shelf, nonproprietary parts
  • Color touch screen display provides troubleshooting guidance with exploded view drawings, manufacturer and part numbers, html help files with hyperlinks to explain any term
  • Service manual is completely integrated into the diagnostics
