Automated Packaging Systems

Automated Packaging Systems is the market-leading designer and manufacturer of flexible bagging solutions. Its bagging systems and products include Autobag® bags-on-a-roll, SidePouch® speciality bags, and AirPouch® void fill air pillows and protective packaging.

Autobag AB 180™

Autobag AB 180 offers a cost-effective packaging solution capable of bagging at speeds of up to 80 bags per minute using bags that are up to 275mm wide and 550mm long. Bag changeovers are quick and easy allowing short runs of multiple product lines. Modular components ensure minimal downtime and easy maintenance. Operators can quickly recall and set-up jobs using the interactive AutoTouch™ control screen and high capacity memory makes multiple job storage easy.

PS 125 OneStep™

Autobag PS 125 OneStep is the next step up from hand bagging, bringing speed and quality to hand load applications. It is ideal for low to mid-volume packaging operations due to its compact design and ‘plug-and-play’ operating system. Bags are presented, loaded by hand, then sealed using the Push-to-Seal™ function, a footswitch or via automatic cycle control. A built in printer is capable of printing graphics, text and barcodes directly on the bag, eliminating the need for separate labels.

AirPouch Express 3™

AirPouch Express 3 is a compact system that produces air pillows at a rate of 15 metres per minute. Material is fed directly into the system from the transit carton requiring less lifting and reducing storage space requirements. Air cushions are a cost-effective and reliable alternative to paper and loose fill chips, and can be formed from GeoTech™ material to reduce environmental impact. AirPouch air pillows feature EZ-Tear perforations reducing operator effort to separate cushions and therefore increase productivity.


FastWrap is the industry’s most flexible, reliable and user-friendly on-demand protective packaging system. Ideal for wrapping, interleaving and block-and-brace applications, the air-filled bubbles and tubes secure and cushion goods in transit, reducing damages and returns. FastWrap’s superior sealing system ensures excellent air retention and knifeless technology eliminates the primary wear found on other machines in its class.

FAS SPrint Revolution™

Engineered specifically for the food industry, the FAS Sprint Revolution operates at speeds up to 22 metres per minute to increase productivity for food packers. The semi-automated horizontal system is ideal for packing fragile food as it offers the flexibility for hand-load applications – minimising product damage. Bags can be changed quickly, making it suitable for companies with multiple product lines. Bags and pouches come in high capacity boxes and can feature re-closable zippers, resealable flaps and tamper-evident perforations, securing product quality.
