The model 3712 Autobagger is typically used to automatically bag square and rectangular containers from two blowmolders. The unique value of this machine is the ability to bag different containers from different blowmolders simultaneously. The containers are conveyed or gravity fed into the machine, isolated into rows and side pushed to form a rectangular array of containers. There are two accumulation chambers so that two different types of containers can be formed into arrays at the same time. Once an array is complete it is pushed into the center bag fill position, then pushed into a wall of film that wraps around the array and the trailing side of the array is sealed. The containers are then conveyed into a side sealing area where both sides of the film are tensioned and sealed, forming the bag around the containers with Dyco's unique flat film technology. Once the bundle is formed it is then conveyed to a pick-up location. From this position a precision servo driven stacker picks up the bundle, rotates or indexes linearly, and gently places the bundle on a stack. Once a full stack of bundles is accumulated in one of the stack locations a beacon indicator alerts an operator to take away a full bundle stack. The operator then resets that stack location.
