CMD demonstrated its new world-class converting technology for drawtape-style trash bags on easy-to-dispense rolls- at K2019. Visitors were impressed with the samples of a new, high-value bag product
“This product will offer a new opportunity for our customers to expand their product portfolio and market share, while enhancing their sustainability value,” said Tim Lewis, Vice-President of Global Sales and Service.
Converters are continuing to grow their business and expand market share by offering customers the advantage of consumer-friendly, easy-close-and-carry drawtape-style trash bags. The patented Model 1270GDSE Global Drawtape Bagmaking System for Embossed Bags offers even more:
-Proven technology for efficient converting of embossed bags
-High-performance bags that stretch to handle tough trash challenges
-Possibility to use thinner film for materials savings and sustainable advantage
-New product look that stands out and gets noticed
-Choose from standard embossing pattern or customize your own
-Production speeds up to 600 feet per minute (183 meters per minute)
-Convert drawtape or straight-top trash bags with minimal set-up between jobs.
-A compact footprint which saves floor space and is simple to thread up and operate
-Retainable menu settings for consistent, high-quality bags
-Optional print-to-seal registration for the high-speed production of printed bags
-A large, color touch screen and centralized line control for simplified operation

The Global Drawtape System can be configured with the Model 0305GOWE Global Overlap Bag Winder. This enhanced winding system will produce drawstring style bags on “overlapped” rolls with popular, one-at-a-time dispensing, banded for retail merchandising.
-Wound bags may be connected to each other by perforations, or each bag separated and overlapped onto the previous bag to provide the unique advantage of easy-to-dispense overlapped bags on rolls – a rapidly sought-after consumer convenience.
-Enhanced processing capabilities include high speed production up to183 mpm (600 fpm) and up to 20 un-banded rolls per minute
-New package and product portioning for additional distribution opportunities – right-sized rolls for box, club or dollar stores.
-Optional roll banding/labeling allows converters to eliminate outer packaging for a more sustainable product.
-Thoughtful operating and maintenance features include space-saving footprint, simple operation from color touch screen, Ethernet capability for remote support and convenient, optional slide-out label bander.
CMD’s extensive experience and technologies for sealing and web handling are a great advantage for converters facing tough challenges with new recycled-content and biodegradable film blends and compositions. CMD partners with customers to invent and produce new products and create new market and business opportunities which are rapidly coming on line due to the increased market and legislative pressures to lower carbon footprints, use more recycled content and degradable materials.
“While new sustainable films can be a challenge to produce and convert, they also offer a new frontier of opportunity for our customers,” says Lewis. “CMD equipment is designed with the powerful capabilities that provide a wide process window to effectively seal a variety of blends and materials, including new recycled-content and recyclable flexible film, thus supporting sustainability and a circular economy.”
CMD designs and manufactures high-performance equipment for the plastic converting industry, including patented, high-speed rotary bag and film converting lines, and pouch making systems.
