Bagging system passes tests with flying colors
Slidell's test center determines which bagging system can best handle a chemical manufacturer's dusty powdered paint additives.
Slidell, Owatonna, Minn., manufactures automated bagging systems that fill open-mouth, multiwall paper, and plastic bags. The company also operates a 2,500-square-foot test center, which houses three automated bagging systems that control each bag from the empty-bag magazine to the bag sealer. Test center workers examine your material's handling characteristics and determine which bagging system and feeding arrangement can work best for you.
