Autobag® CTS4000™ Clean Towel System

High productivity packaging for industrial laundering

Capable of bagging over 4,000 towels per hour, this state-of-the-art packaging system incorporates an array of new technologies for maximum efficiency, accuracy and dependability.

A new, large detection eye system automatically counts product as it is loaded, while an audible blocked-eye alarm increases counting accuracy. The accumulating Smart Funnel enables continuous loading during the bag sealing process, and opens into a pre-opened bag for positive product entry. An automatic Bag Shaker activates at a pre-set count for maximum towels per bag.

Autobag® CTS4000™ Clean Towel System

Ethernet-enabled remote monitoring is available, providing real-time access to productivity data, and featuring valuable operating information, such as batch count, total count, packaging speed, and system status. Productivity data is also available via the user-friendly AutoTouch™ Control Screen, which also provides access to job set-up and storage, job recall, and on-board system diagnostics.

The CTS4000™ features a new bag-out sensor and AutoThread™ functionality, which ensures a constant supply of bags and seamless, rapid bag changeovers. Modular components and advanced Replace-n-Repair™ technology ensure maximum uptime.

The CTS4000 integrates with a variety of infeeds, conveyors and accessories. An optional infeed hopper with a motorized conveyor ties into existing, sling-fed production lines. The Scrap Rejection Bin option can be added to track and decentralize items needing re-wash. The unit’s take-away conveyor transports filled bags from the bagger to storage tote bins.

Using Autobag® brand bags-in-a-box, the CTS4000 offers a fast and cost-effective packaging solution.
