Pearson BI18 Bag Inserter opens, inserts, and cuffs perforated plastic bags from roll stock into a wide variety of corrugated cases at speeds of up to 18 cases per minute. Advanced design features guarantee smooth and precise bag placement and handling. Furthermore, high-visibility machine status lighting, non-contact interlocks, CAT-3 Safety Circuits, easily accessible grace port and an auxiliary operator station are standard features on the machine.

Standard Features

Fast changeovers are supported by the industry’s most advanced HMI with an uncluttered design, intuitive navigation, interactive changeover and fault-recovery guides, live sensor maps, and advanced maintenance features. Scales, pointers and quick release handles ensure additional tools are not necessary. Trained technicians can complete a changeover in under 20min.

A remote operator station enables convenient machine control on both sides of the conveyor.

Dual channel safety circuit maintains integrity of safety features in case of single component failure.

Eliminates misalignment of guard door interlocks which prevents problems common to keyed interlocks.

A standard four-light LED beacon provides high-visibility of machine status.

Grace ports provide convenient communication access and 110V convenience outlet at the outside of the machine’s electrical cabinet.

Allows Pearson’s support team on-demand access to the equipment’s PLC and HMI through a secure VPN connection via an eWON router (ISECOM STAR and ISO27001 certified) to support emergency troubleshooting and reduce on-site visits.

Popular Upgrade Options

Air-Conditioner

Air conditioning provides cooling when ambient temperature becomes too hot or the contents of the electrical enclosure generate heat that risk failure to components.

Fitted Conveyor

Standard Bag Inserters sit atop of the customer’s existing conveyor. Alternatively, Pearson can provide and internal fitted conveyor, which extends from the outer edge of the infeed tunnel guard and reaches to the outer edge of the discharge tunnel guard.

Fitted Mandrel

A custom sized mandrel replaces the standard mandrel to provide better placement of the bag in the case. A fitted mandrel is recommended if the bag is being pulled into the case during loading with certain products. A fitted mandrel may reduce the speed of the machine.

Low Temperature Environment

Electrical enclosures located in cold and humid environments maintain better performance and longevity with the addition of this heater and drier package.

Oversized and Undersized Case Support

This machine can be modified to operate outside of standard specifications to accommodate smaller or larger dimension products and cases. Specific adjustments require engineering review to determine limitations and potential performance trade-offs such as machine speed or larger machine footprint.

Plant Level Ethernet Connection

A Network Address Translation device allows specific Ethernet network configurations across multiple machines in the plant network and offers the ability for remote support through VPN connections.

Portability

Easily move or reposition a machine on the production floor with the portability package, which provides locking casters and stabilizing jackscrew assemblies. Depending on machine model, it can also include quick disconnects for air lines and electrical lines.
