Autobag® AB 180™ OneStep Bagger


The Autobag AB 180 OneStep is uniquely designed to provide flexible solutions for dynamic packaging environments, such as mail order fulfillment, short production run, and build-on-demand operations. By positioning the PI 412c imprinter directly over the next bag to be loaded, the AB 180 OneStep prints and indexes in a single-step – virtually eliminating bag waste and product queuing.

This next-bag-out technology ensures accuracy and efficiency in packaging applications that require frequent product and label changeovers. The AB 180 OneStep can be utilized in the standard Print-n-Pack™ configuration, or integrated with a variety of productivity options, including laptop computers, bar code scanners and stand-alone keyboards.

The AB 180 OneStep operates at speeds up to 30 bags per minute, printing high-resolution text, graphics and bar codes up to 12 inches per second. The system is ideal for packaging small to medium products, offering bag sizes up to 11 inches wide and 25 inches long.

Using genuine Autobag pre-opened bags-on-a-roll, the AB 180 One Step is a fast, flexible and cost-effective packaging solution.
