Overview

Investment Savings Through Innovation

The P3c is a "Universal Bagmaker", capable of producing a wide range of bag sizes with consistent performance throughout the range, thanks to its servo motion controls and auto program setup. The P3c offers a variety of bag style options, including block bottom bags, perforated bag string, promotional strip, notching and hole punching.

The P3c features KW's most advanced servo motion control of the film pull belts, end-seal jaws and stripping for quieter, smoother and faster operation than ever before, with production speeds up to 120 bpm.

The P3c's frame is designed for direct mounting of filling systems, reducing the need for a support structure or mezzanine, yet is wide open for access to the interior of the machine. The P3c has a smaller footprint than most bagmakers of its capability thanks to the recessed electrical cabinets.
