This auto bagging and palletizing system is designed to fill 50 lb. open mouth poly bags at a rate of 10 bags per minute. Free-flowing and dry bulk material flows from the 80 cu. ft. hopper into a net weigh gravity flow bagger that includes a vibrating feeder with gravity gate. The feeder doses a set amount of product into the internal weigh hopper.
Poly bags are spouted on the bagger using an automatic bag placer. After the bags reach a set target weight, they drop to the bag closing conveyor where they move through a bag top reformer that prepares the bags to be sewn shut.
After sewing, the bags are knocked down and turned. Then, they move through a bag flattener, a pacing / squaring conveyor, and onto a robot pick conveyor.
Next, a Fanuc robot with tool picks up each bag and gently stacks them on a pallet. Pallets are automatically dispensed onto the conveyor and a slip sheet is applied. Once the pallets are full, they move through a pallet wrapper, and onto the filled pallet accumulation conveyor.
