Pouch-Opening Machine

The QuickPouch Micro from Adaptive Manufacturing Technologies holds a pouch open while it is being filled.

A Pouch handling machine can speed up pouch opening by a factor of two or more, according to Adaptive Manufacturing Technologies Inc. The QuickPoch Micro is designed to reduce handling of the pouch by holding the pouch open while it is filled, enabling the operator to have both hands free. This can decrease operator fatigue, which can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries.

The pouch opener features intuitive adjustments for different sized pouches, a foot pedal for operator triggering, an auto mode that will cycle the machine at a set speed, and built-in resettable counters. The unit's footprint is less than 12 in. wide by 18 in. lng, and it weighs less than 25 lbs. The base model opens pouches from 2 to 6 in. wide, and 4 to 8 in. tall.
