Abstract
A machine for and method of accepting the group-by-group discharge from a bag collator and for forming such groups into bundles each of which constitutes a predetermined number of bags. After formation, the bag bundles are compressed by application of forces thereto adequate to develop high-bag friction within the interior of each bundle. Each compressed bundle is advanced into and through banding apparatus in a step-by-step progression during which a band is wrapped or folded about the bundle and has adhesive applied to its overlapping flaps, and the band-equipped bundle is then maintained under compressional constraint through a plurality of cycles of the machine to enable the adhesive to cure before the bundle is ejected therefrom.
