Auto-Print® Max Bagger for Robot Ready Packaging

Auto-Print® Max Bagger

MPI’s Auto-Print® Max Bagger is an over-wrap packaging system for printing and packaging parenteral medications capable of working with a centralized, robotic drug distribution system. It provides the capability of loading, printing, bar coding, and sealing ancillary parenteral medications in just a few simple steps. Bags are blown open through an internal fan, which channels high-volume, low-pressure ducted air into the bag for easy product loading. Labeling and bar coding is done directly on the bag, eliminating costly labels and allowing for customization of bar coding and packaging procedures specific to the requirements of each facility.

Available via special order only.

  • Produces up to thirty (30) filled and sealed bags per minute
  • Two (2) standard size bags available: 3½” x 4″ and 5″ x 5″
  • Seals completely each time, delivering consistent and tamper-evident seals
  • Utilizes “off-the-shelf” parts, ensuring minimal maintenance and less down time
  • Includes MPI’s exclusive Pak-EDGE™ UD Barcode Labeling Software
