This valve bag filling system is used to fill 50 Lb. paper valve bags with different types of high-quality silica sand. After filling, bags are conveyed to a robotic palletizer that automatically stacks the bags on pallet.
This type of silica sand is a high-quality round and sub-round silica sand with mesh sizes ranging between 8×16 and 100. It has many uses including:
turf sand used for infill to protect artificial turf and increase its life expectancy
roofing sand for specialty roofing tiles, flooring titles, and colored grout
building and industrial sands as an ideal base for construction, concrete, bricks, foundry, and flooring
water filtration sand used in wells, filters, and other water fixtures
This packaging and robotic palletizer system fills craft paper bags with 25, 40, or 50 Lbs. of livestock minerals and supplements. It includes a hopper, net weigh bag filling machine, high-speed sewing system, and robotic palletizer with 2 bag stack zones. It replaced an existing bag filling and packaging line at the feed service company that has been in business since 1946.
The Grain and Corn Bagging System combines product storage, filling, and bag closing into one system. Efficiently fill and close 30-50 lb. paper and poly-woven open mouth style bags.
The system has been engineered for bagging deer corn (whole corn), feed, seed, and other grains. The manual, or mechanical, bagging option includes automatic weighing. The system is upgradeable to a higher packaging speed with the addition of a high-speed bag sewing system to quickly close the bags. Additional options are available including hand held bag sewing machines, bag flattening conveyors, and bag stacking systems.
The video below shows a bag palletizing robot stacking 50 lb. paper valve bags onto a pallet located on the floor per the programmed bag placement design. This robot was added to an existing bag filling system to reduce labor costs and increase automation.
An Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) System is used to prepare a homogeneous dry blend of base polymers and additives before the extrusion phase in a plastic compounding process. Plastic compounding and toll processing companies first use an IBC system to create a lab formulation or test to confirm final product characteristics before creating a masterbatch. Once a final product has been confirmed, the same IBC system is used to create a larger batch or production run.
IBC is easily transported by forklift to other discharge stations
The automatic bag placer machine picks up, hangs, and clamps an empty open mouth bag onto a bagger before product is discharged into a bag. Up to 20 bags per minute are possible and it works with both new / existing net weigh and gross weigh bagging scales. With this type of automation, one full-time operator can be removed from the bagging system.
Bag of pigment powder tipping onto discharge conveyor after filling
This semi-automatic system fills batch inclusion bags with blended pigment powders used for road markings. After filling, the bags are conveyed to a palletizing station.
Blended pigment powder used for road marking is conveyed to a bucket elevator that discharges it into a 25 cubic foot hopper. Then, the powder flows by gravity into the air chamber of the valve bag air packer.
Bag moves through a bag top reformer before sewing
This type of automation can eliminate the need for an operator to manually guide a filled bag into a bag closing system. It can handle production rates up to 15 bags per minute and typically comes with an automatic bag placer.
Automatic pallet dispenser, slip sheet dispenser, and robot stack zone conveyor (System 1)
When speed and bagging rate is important, automating the dispensing of pallets and slip sheets helps to reduce labor requirements for feeding shipping pallets into an automated palletizing system with a robot.
