Materials Handling Concetti Group A TURNKEY SOLUTION COMBINES BAGGING SYSTEM AND BULK BAG FILLING SYSTEM To replace an existing weighing, bagging
palletising system without enlarging or modifying the plant can sometimes be a challenge but it also represents an opportunity for an entrepreneur. Concetti of Bastia, Umbria, Italy recently supplied just such a turnkey solution combining a fully automatic bagging system IGF600 designed for woven PP open mouth bags and a bulk bag filling system to a South American manufacturer of pig and cattle feed.
space. The installation, for example, uses a single net weigher, meeting the requirement of the customer to have two bagging solutions with a single complete line. Dosing is by net weight scale NET / N – one for both filling machines - and a conveyor belt. The sacks are filled by a fully automatic IGF 600, specifically designed to handle PE readymade open-mouth bags (600 bags / hour). Concetti supplied the line complete with a PS-3A four-column robot palletiser. The big bag filling station has a capacity up to 8-10 big bags per hour and requires the presence of an operator to fit the bag mouth to the bag-spout, close it and remove it with a forklift when filled.
