Rennco NextGen 301 Pack Expo 2017

The new NextGen 301 propels automatic bagging to a new level of productivity

The high-speed NextGen 301 is rated at up to 60 bags per minute (BPM). Extensive use of servo control ensures smooth motion and faster changeover for greater flexibility. Servo control leads to easier and faster bag customization for minimized material consumption and low overall cost of ownership. The NextGen 301 also incorporates a servo controlled trim-windup system.

Easier to maintain and less operator involvement

The NextGen 301 has a lower profile and streamlined frame, which makes it easier and more ergonomic for operators to load film. Because film roll handling is easier, larger

rolls can be used, which extends the time between loading. This frees operators for other tasks. The low, streamlined frame also results in faster and easier maintenance as key systems are more accessible.

The flexibility of the NextGen platform’s infeed design frees operators from hand loading and reduces labor. The infeed’s design also expands the range of products that can be bagged on the NexGen 301 for greater versatility and lowers labor time through the automatic flow of products from upstream machines.

Three NextGen machines from which to choose – two will be at Pack Expo

Three NextGen baggers cover most application needs. A NextGen 501, introduced at Pack Expo in 2016, will also be on display in Las Vegas. The 501 is at the larger end of the spectrum with a maximum bag width of 36 inches. The NextGen 301 produces bags with a maximum width of 24 inches. For narrower applications, the NextGen 201 seals bags with a maximum width of 10 inches.
