Intermittent- and Continuous-Motion Bagmakers

  • Overview

    The P3 and P3c “Universal Bagmakers” provide ease of use, high speed, and package size flexibility to applications including: potato chips, tortilla chips, corn chips, pretzels, snack crackers, popcorn and all other salted snacks. They produce a wide range of bag sizes with consistent performance throughout the range, thanks to servo motion controls and auto program setup. The P3c is a continuous-motion machine providing higher speeds.

    The P3 and P3c offer a variety of bag style options, including block bottom bags, perforated bag string, promotional strip, notching and hole punching. They feature KW’s most advanced servo motion control of the film pull belts, end-seal jaws and stripping, for quieter, smoother and faster operation than ever before.
