MDC MiniPack Zipper Bag Machine Key Features
Top and Bottom Web Registration: The MiniPack’s powered unwinds and top and bottom web registration system allows users to run printed films on both the top and bottom webs. Included are splice and low web detection for each web. The MiniPack maintains registration throughout the entire run to ensure your final packages look great.

Easy to Operate: The Minipack is so compact that only one operator is required to run and load the system. The simple touch screen walks the operator through set up and production and makes troubleshooting a breeze.

Stop and Start (on demand bagging): MDC’s retractable stations remove heat from the film during machine stops allowing you to produce the exact amount you require without throwing away valuable materials.

Built Solid: The MiniPack is constructed with 4″ aluminum framing which provides a solid and robust build while keeping the system affordable. An additional benefit is the open view of the inner components, which are completely guarded with a CAT 3 safety package.
