Machines for the production of T-shirt bags, bottom sealed and wicket bags


BM11GS high speed T-shirt bags making machine 


The high standard of the T-Shirt bags needs an accurate production, a high quality sealing, a constant production and absolute reliability. That’s why for such kind of production the key point is that the machine shall be easy to use and that the operator could easily interface with it by knowing and controlling each part of the PLC. Furthermore the machine has to grant short setting and change over.

Then Elba, thanks to more than fifty years of experience on the market, designed the new BM11GS.
The BM11GS machine can produce:
• bags with central block*;
• bags with upper dispenser block*;
• standard bags*;
• bags with glue spot and grommets.

(*production is possible by including in the machine configuration the dedicated device)


The BM11GS is equipped with dedicated brushless servo motors for the film indexing, the sealing bars movement and the bags collecting on the final table.

Last but not least, according to his mission, Elba updates constantly each one of its machines with new technological solutions, so today the BM11BW is equipped with the new HMI based on Siemens Profibus® system to easy set the machine, to control and check each phase of the working process, to save all different receipts and to restore them when necessary, to verify quickly any problem, reducing stop over time and increasing whereby the output.
