WeighPack Systems Inc., Montreal, will now offer the r2b series of Horizontal Form Fill Seal baggers. The series aims to increase productivity and reduce labor costs by combining bag making, filling, sealing, and printing in one process, according to a news release.

The r2b uses laminated roll film stock and can produce pillow, stand up, carry handle, center capping and corner capping bags with or without zipper closures. It is also available in two models: the r2b 1200, which produces bags with widths of 6 to 12 inches and lengths of 8 to 18 inches, and the r2b 3600, which produces bags with widths of 3.5 to 8 inches and lengths of 6 to 11 inches, according to the release.

Removable access panels are located in the front and back of the r2b in an effort to simplify cleaning and setup. A color touch-screen monitor also gives the operator the ability to monitor all stations, according to the release.
