The KR725 bag feeder from Kirk-Rudy is designed to feed difficult large flat bags one at a time from a stack onto a vacuum conveyor for printing and/or labeling. The pick-and-place suction cup mechanism removes the top bag off a stack and feeds it onto the conveyor. The automatic stack loader allows the operator to load a stack of bags while the previously loaded stack is already being fed into the unit, providing continuous feeding.
