AUTOBAG® Brand 550 High-Speed Printing and Bagging System

AUTOBAG® Brand 550 High-Speed Printing and Bagging System


The AUTOBAG® Brand 550 High-Speed Printing and Bagging System is a technologically-advanced, automatic filling and sealing machine designed for reliability, flexibility and optimizing packaging throughput. Capable of cycling at speeds up to 45 bags per minute, this system was designed to maximize machine uptime while lowering total cost of ownership.

Next-bag-out printing is achieved with an advanced thermal transfer imprinter positioned directly over the next bag to be loaded. This ensures accuracy and efficiency in applications that require frequent product and label changeovers, prevents product queuing and eliminates a separate labeling operation.

State-of-the-art engineering has led to an inherently safe and flexible design. No light curtains or double palm switches are required to achieve safe hand-load operation. The AUTOBAG® Brand 550 is configurable for left- or right-hand access to the HMI, cycle switch, and ribbon and bag loading areas, improving ergonomics and operator productivity. Plus, the AUTOBAG® Brand 550 can be networked to facilitate full pack station integration and central monitoring. A 45 degree tilt option is available for orienting long or delicate products.

A straightforward, simple design with very few moving parts reduces lifetime cost and improves reliability, while on-board diagnostics and modular components simplify maintenance. 

When used with genuine AUTOBAG® Brand pre-opened bags-on-a-roll or bags-in-a-box if applicable, and AutoLabel Thermal Transfer Ribbon, the AUTOBAG® Brand 550 ushers in the next evolution of high-quality, reliable and flexible bag packaging, backed by the industry’s most comprehensive engineering and field service network.
