Combined bagging and bulk bag filling system

Combined bagging and bulk bag filling system

Concetti, Bastia Umbra, Italy, recently supplied a South American manufacturer of animal feeds with a turnkey installation combining an IGF600 fully automatic bagging system designed for woven PP open mouth bags with a bulk bag filling station. The customer had requested a robust, reliable and flexible high quality bagging solution, but adapted to the tight space constraints existing in the plant and capable of filling both 25kg bags and 800-1000kg bulk bags.

The technical solution provided by Concetti has optimised the space, to make the most of the selected machinery, in addition to reducing the capital investment. 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 belt conveyor.  The product is weighed in a separate weigh hopper and is then discharged into the bag, or alternatively deposited on a conveyor belt linked to the bulk bag filling station, with multiple weighments making up the 1000kg load. The sacks are filled by a fully automatic IGF 600, specifically designed to handle PE open-mouth bags. Capacity is up to 600 bags/h, depending on the type of product and its fluidity. Concetti supplied the line complete with a PS-3A four-column robot palletizer. The bulk bag filling station has a capacity up to 8-10 bags/h and requires the presence of an operator to fit the bag mouth to the filling spout, close it and remove it with a forklift when filled.
