What is the Automatic Bag Sewing Machine ？
As we know, automatic bag sewing machines play a significant role in various industries. Automated bag closing equipment is a critical component in achieving automated packaging production. It can effectively reduce material waste, protect the clean production environment, and improve efficiency.
These bag sewing machines are used to close open bags for paper, textiles, paper-plastic laminate material, aluminum coatings material, etc. They can integrate automatic sewing head and be equipped with optional edge folding devices, tape closures, automatic label placement machines, etc.
They can provide both plain stitch closing and crepe-tape closing. Combined with the wxtytech conveyor system, can create a high speed and efficient automatic bag closing system.
Compared to bag heat sealers, bag sewing machines are more suitable for flammable and explosive materials or materials with larger particle diameters because they avoid the process of heating glue and use industrial-strength threads to stitch shut bags.
However, the final decision on which bag closing system to use will depend on the type of material, type of closure, throughput requirements, and level of automation required. You can contact our bag closing experts, and they will provide you with the right bag closing solution free of charge.
▎Types of Bag Closures
- Bag Plain Sew: This method uses 2 threads to close the bag and is suitable for more oversized products to avoid material leakage between the stitches. It is the simplest way to sew the bag.
- Bag Top Fold + Plain Sew: Folding the bag open-mouth can avoid most of the material leakage, then use 1 or 2 threads to fix the folded part to ensure no material leakage.
- Tape Sew with Crepe Paper: Use self-adhesive tape to close the bag, completely isolating air and water vapor. It is suitable for some materials with special storage requirements and uses 1 or 2 threads to reinforce the closure effect, beautiful appearance, and sound effect of closing the bag.
▎Stitches Shut Guide
Regarding industrial bag sewing machines, ISO #101 and ISO #401 are the two most important chain stitch to close bags.
ISO# 101 (Chainstitch): Stitch formed by a need thread passing through the bag material and sewing interlooping with itself on the underside of the seam.
ISO# 401 (Chainstitch): Stitch formed by 1-needle thread passing through the material and interlooped with 1-looper thread and pulled up to the underside of the seam.
In addition to this, if your material has special storage requirements, please let our packaging experts know, and they will give you helpful advice about sewing the package.
▎Types of Bag Sewing Machines
- Fully Automatic Bag Sewing System
To meet the requirements of industrial automation, the use of a fully automatic bag sewing system enables an efficient bag sewing process without the need for manual involvement. After completing the filling and weighing process, the robot automatically grabs the bag open-mouth and feeds it into the sewing track. All operations are controlled by computer programs and do not require human intervention.
- Semi-automatic Bag Sewing Machine
This sewing system consists of a pedestal sewing machine and a belt conveyor that requires the operator to feed the bags into the sewing track. It is capable of automatic bag sewing and stopping operation, controlled by sensors. It also provides variable speed control switches and safety protection devices.
- Handheld and Portable Bag Sewing Equipment
In addition to the stationary bag sewing machines, we also offer portable bag sewing machines. It does not require a base or conveyor and is usually hung in the air for handheld sewing and stitching only. They are flexibly adapted to different production scenarios with few restrictions.
