The New W-Pack

Keeping Up With Citrus Packing Trends

Xact, together with world leader Giró, have listened to customer demands and designed a new product, the ‘W Pack’. So called for the innovative ‘window’ area, the W Pack addresses the changing demands in stores for smaller packs with optimised display options.

Delivering on our promise to extend the life of machines and deliver flexible options to the market place, we have designed the ‘W-Pack’ which can simply be produced with a low cost addition kit to the ‘UB Girbagger’ range of machines.

CA3 In-line Packing Machine

Inline Clipping Machine

The CA3 In-Line is a net packing machine for producing 3 or 4 products in a line from tubular net. It is ideally suited for use with products such as garlic, onions and oranges.

A device adjusts the net length according to the content and closes the bag with metal clips. The result is an attractive and tight package. The machine is equipped with an automatic tube change to reduce stops and increase the output and the wine glass label and bolduc tape are applied when required.

The new PDG-4, the most accurate citrus weigher on the market

12 Tons of fruit savings a year!

This is what the new PDG-4 could offer in a standard yearly production of 4 Million bags/year (based on a 1kg clementine bag).

Xact, in partnership with Giró have launched the new dynamic weighing PDG-4 machine. Ideal for citrus weighing, the PDG-4 is a breakthrough in accuracy, and undoubtedly the most accurate citrus weigher on the market.



Increased flexibility of 'Display Until' and 'Use By' date printing.


Xact in partnership with Giro, have listened to our customer feedback and we have produced new plugin software 'GirLabel 12', which is an upgrade version of the well-known GirLabel label editor.

“Display until” or “Best Before” dates on labels have always been a problem if production planning dictates that you should pack several days ahead of the batch being shipped to the distribution depot, as is the case with many fruit and vegetable pack houses.

CA10 Machine

CA-10 Machine

CA-10, the World’s first automatic clipping machine using reels of net, saving 68% of the operator´s time!

The CA-10, by GIRO, is the World’s first automatic clipping machine using reels of net.

It revolutionises the world of traditional net clipped packing because, there is no need to remove the feeding tube to load the net.

There are several advantages with this innovation: greater autonomy of operation, use of net reels (which saves storage volume) and, most important, much less operator time because the net tubes do not need filling or replacing. It's often not obvious to Production Managers the amount of time that is taken in performing these simple tasks. However, with two CA-10 Clipping machines on one production line, it will save the labour of one full time person. In short: a great saving in operating cost.
