Sharp Max-Pro 18™ Autopacking Bagger System

Continuous Bagging System

The MAX-PRO 18 is a continuous autopacking bagger system ideal for large, sturdy contents. It runs packages up to 18" wide and has an 8" passthrough. The MAX-PRO 18 has been redesigned from the ground up for increased productivity and easier operation. The MAX-PRO 18 features include:

  • Predictive maintenance using advanced diagnostics monitor internal components, alerting technicians to potential wear before a failure occurs
  • Technology advancements include an improved, easier to use HMI inspired by smartphones
  • Faster run times with huge productivity gains
  • Cost saving by using off-the-shelf, nonproprietary parts 
  • Smaller footprint fits into existing modular systems and takes up less floor space

Cutting Edge Technology

  • Advanced diagnostics monitor individual machine components, notifying technicians of any potential problems and allowing replacement parts to be ordered before a failure occurs
  • Networkable HMI responds like a smartphone: faster and more intuitive, with easy to understand icons
  • Passthrough size now adjustable via the HMI, with no tools required

More Versatile Operation

  • Simplified bag threading system allows even novice operators to load new bags easily
  • Sharp MAX-PRO 18 accommodates 18" wide bags with an 8" passthrough depth
  • Save job settings in HMI for easy access
  • Store label designs and even create labels directly on the HMI
  • Compatible with both rolls and boxes of bags

More Efficient

  • Aluminum jaw is lightweight and faster, decreasing cycle times
  • Heavy duty drive fingers never need realignment
  • Obstruction sensing jaw
  • Constantly heated sealing mechanism offers a longer life than impulse mechanisms

Faster Printing

  • Incorporating Zebra thermal printers permits direct printing onto the package for barcodes, graphics, and alphanumeric fonts
  • Movable printing head sets to precise positions, eliminating queuing and reducing material cost and scrap
  • Decrease thermal ribbon usage as much as 90% with reduced spacing between impressions, printing with alternative registrations, and adjusting impression placements to maximize ribbon usage

Access Data Anywhere

  • HMI, printer, and PLC can be networked, so they can be accessed at any time from almost anywhere
  • Use remote label printing, production reporting, and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) control

Easy Maintenance

  • New design utilizes fewer components, decreasing downtime and increasing ease of maintenance
  • Improved error reporting pinpoints problems for hassle free troubleshooting
  • Off-the-shelf, nonproprietary parts can be purchased at most MRO stores
  • Service hatches are positioned in the front to allow easier access
  • The service manual is integrated into the HMI for convenient reference
  • The color touchscreen display provides troubleshooting guidance with exploded view drawings, manufacturer and part numbers, and html help files with hyperlinks to explain any term
