Bag-in-box filler packaging is an economical and eco-friendly storage solution for many types of liquid products, from beverages and water to detergents and chemicals. Using flexible packaging benefits manufacturers in several ways. It can preserve and protect a product’s quality while providing a longer shelf life, and lighter weight materials help reduce shipping and warehousing costs. Environmental rewards include fewer natural resources used in the production process, less consumer waste sent to landfills, and smaller amounts of emitted greenhouse gases.
ABCO fillers are recognized around the world as one of the best and most efficient high-speed bag-in-box liquid fillers. We have been designing and building liquid filling equipment and bag-in box machines since 1977, and we have installations in over 20 countries. We’ve earned a solid reputation for our fillers by combining proven designs with cutting-edge technologies, repeatedly setting the standard in our industry. Our throughput rates, accuracy, and reliability lead the industry. And, our ability to custom build filling equipment sets us apart from any other supplier of liquid filling systems. Every ABCO Bag-in-Box (BIB) filler is manufactured and fully tested in our 220,000 SF facility located in Greensboro, N.C. In addition to our standard line of products, we provide turnkey design and build services to accommodate unique packaging requirements, including fully-automated end-of-line solutions.
We design our machines to fill a variety of plastic bags ranging from 1 liter to 75-gallon sizes. ABCO filler lines range from a simple manual bag-in-box filler to a fully automated high-speed filling system capable of 60 bags per minute. Manufacturers can run single-unit loose bags in a semi-automatic mode as well as strip bags for a fully automated filling process. In addition, our automated bag loader can separate bags in-line either before or after filling. With quick-change tooling, our systems accommodate any type of fitment from any manufacturer.
Every ABCO BIB system can be built to sanitary standards with the product surface constructed in T316 stainless, Teflon, product compatible elastomers, and 3A sanitary welds. Non-product surfaces are T304 stainless and fitted for clean-in-place (CIP) service. Our systems can fill chilled product or product with temperatures up to 185 °F (85 °C). Fill levels and rates are fully programmable, and ABCO’s no drip fill valve design is second to none. Other standard features include bag and cap presence sensors, Allen Bradley controls, and quick-change tooling. ABCO’s BIB fillers provide the highest speeds and throughputs, +/- 0.3% filling accuracy, and the highest yields.
