ceal / bag closer machine


Ceal is standard bag closer (stitching) machine with non electric mechanism. A high strength timer belt and precision engineering movement makes stitching on a bag’s edge.
The existing bag closer machines are designed for large scale industries where production rates are high. They are importable and expensive because of their high production rate design. These kinds of machines are not suitable for farmers and small scale grocery stores where production rate is seasonal and electricity is not an option. A design challenge was to make existing bag closer machines portable, light weight and runs without electricity.
