Sharp Max Pro 24 Bagging Machine

Sharp Max Pro 24 Bagging Machine

The widest auto bagger on the market.

With a roomy 24-inch aperture, the Max Pro 24™ hybrid bagger claims the title of widest automatic bagging unit on the market. Coupled with a 12-inch depth, the Max Pro 24 is officially the most generous plastic and paper bagging solution for sizable products, capable of a 12 x 12 inch (610mm) opening to fit packages up to 36 inches long and 24 inches wide. That’s as much as two standard shoe boxes sitting side-by-side in one bag. Add to the mix its 10lb weight capacity and it’s easy to see how the Max Pro makes light work of heavy, bulky items. Don’t ship items this large? Future-proof your plans in the ever-evolving e-commerce market with the Max Pro 24 and be prepared, whatever your packs. Even if you currently bag small items only, the intuitive system programming will auto change the passthrough for each and every product while the plastic or paper bag deflator mechanism dynamically adapts to its size for a neat close and presentable finish.

Key Features


label side up

When twinned with integrated conveyance, the label side up feature of the Max Pro 24 is perfect for mail order fulfilment and e-commerce applications. It ensures that each and every bagged pack drops consistently onto the conveyor with the labelled side on display, ready for barcode reading or scanning by downstream equipment. This guaranteed uniformity of pack in the outfeed delivers improved overall speeds and efficiency in your operation, without the need for manual intervention or checking.

Max Pro delivers Max ROI

One fully automatic Max Pro 24 with a single operator can do the equivalent work of four manual packers. This equates to huge gains in throughputs, capacity and speed. Thanks to the intelligent HMI’s job recall, all parameters and settings can be saved so there’s no downtime when switching between jobs. Fast and easy plastic and paper bag changeovers are made possible by the drop shelf, and the lightweight aluminium jaw means reduced cycle times to keep up the pace.
Time is not the only resource to be gained. As well as labour costs, the Max Pro 24 delivers material savings as it negates the need for secondary labels. The thermal transfer printing is done directly onto the paper or plastic bag rather than a label, equating to a sizable annual savings for busy distribution centres. Additionally, the reductions in packaging weights that come from bagging versus boxes or cartons can significantly slash freight costs. The Max Pro 24 can reduce thermal ribbon usage by as much as 90% compared to competitor models by adjusting impression placements to maximise available ribbon space, and its constantly heated sealing bar lasts for millions of cycles to reduce consumables spend versus impulse mechanisms. Its moveable printing head can be set to precise positions based on package size to print bags in order and prevent scrap waste.


Bags of quality

If you’re looking for a high quality hybrid bagging unit on which to run high quality bagging consumables, the Max Pro 24 is for you. It’s compatible with up to 10 different types of bag including metallised and fully recyclable LDPE variations. Plus, bags with handles and euro slot holes can be run as well as bags with sealable strips for easy returns. Speak to us about your exact requirements as we can supply materials to any specification, in a range of thicknesses, widths and with or without printed designs. Plastic not your bag? The unit can also run fully recyclable paper bags for those looking to eliminate plastic packaging.

Whatever your material of choice, a quality finish is achieved across the board with the Max Pro 24. Its Zebra printer guarantees the highest resolution 300 DPI for a smudge-free print, making readability and scannability a breeze and ensuring full traceability with easy quality checking.

Plug and play

The Max Pro 24 was designed to be simple to use, straightforward, and reliable in order to cope with the demands of dynamic, busy environments. Adapting to any warehouse, any workstation, and any worker, its ergonomic, free-standing construction is height-adjustable and fully portable. This means it can simply be wheeled into position and connected to power, ready to begin bagging. The dashboard screen can be easily moved using a universal boom arm from a left to right position to suit the individual user, and the latches for plastic or paper bag threading can also be swapped to either hand for personal comfort. Front and side loading is possible to accommodate any packing arrangement and/or product, and can prevent bags tearing when filled with heavier items. This total flexibility of configuration is critical for businesses with temporary, seasonal or shift pattern workforces and those bagging a huge variety of products as it delivers an easy set-up between runs and operators.

Furthermore, visual operation guides displayed on the machine’s casing and the user-friendly HMI memory make this model perfect for staff who need to become acquainted with it quickly. Its ability to make intuitive self-adjustments on the fly translates to a hassle-free operation. The Max Pro 24’s compatibility with a range of conveyors, bowl feeders, and printers makes it truly ideal for both established fulfilment operations as well as new packing lines to simply ‘plug and play’.
