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
These alfalfa pellets bagging machines and systems are used to efficiently fill 20-110 lb. paper or plastic open mouth bags with a variety of alfalfa pellets and cubes. Buy just a bagging machine or an entire bagging system that includes a free-standing hopper, bagging scale, conveyors, bag closers, palletizers, and more. These systems are designed to fill 20-110 lb. paper or plastic open mouth bags with alfalfa pellets, with the most popular bag size being 50 lbs.
The Newlong Bag Sewing Machine DS-9C high-speed industrial sewing head is a popular choice for businesses seeking to improve their bag closing operations. In this article, we will explore the key features of the Newlong DS-9C, how it works in conjunction with a power infeed system, and the benefits it brings to bag closing processes.
The video below shows a pallet stacking 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.
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 applicator, 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.
