C-Fold Polybagging System for Creating Variable-Length Packages

Boost your productivity with Tension's Variable Auto Bagger VAB C-Fold automated polybagging packaging system. Designed specifically for shipping variable size items, the VAB accepts a continuous stream of products, determines the optimum size for the length and creates a finished package. It is an ideal solution for packaging clothing, soft goods and shoes.

In typical operations, the VAB is capable of 10 to 15 packages per minute. Actual throughput is dependent upon multiple factors including staffing productivity and performance, workflows, data interfaces and availability of product to the system. We can configure your VAB with add-ons to meet the specific needs of your order fulfillment center.

The Variable Auto Bagger VAB uses cost-effective C-Fold polyfilm material to create a tamper resistant package. The material enters the sealing head and the end is cut off according to the package size. The package then exits the system and travels to apply the shipping label to the package. An optional in-line scale for either weight verification or rate shopping is available.
