Ilapak's older Vegatronic
continuous motion baggers are tough
machines but often suffer from obsolete and unsupportable drive systems.
Mechanically these machines are simple enough and a complete
replacement of all the drive and electro-technical components makes a
lot of sense. Latest generation software and a two year warranty
supported by experts with permanently stocked off-the-shelf spare parts
makes even more sense. You get a more rugged machine than
many new ones and it's ready for another decade or two of hard work.
IPS Contract Packing Services have several Vegatronic 3000 baggers
which, according to Ilapak, were obsolete. We offered a rolling service
of upgrade and refurbishment that gave them a fleet of heavy duty
continuous motion vertical baggers. This made excellent financial sense,
improved performance, simplified operation and
gave IPS confidence in the long term
viability of their machines.
Vertical baggers are quite different from horizontal flow-wrappers but we still use the same motors and internal electro-technical components as our horizontal flow-wrapper upgrades and provide the same excellent service and support.
