Bag-emptying machine with screw compactor

Our fully automatic bag-emptying machine can empty granulate filled bags of 25Kg. Pallets are placed at the side of the infeed conveyor with a forklift truck. After placing the pallet on the infeed conveyor, the conveyor will transport the pallet to the lift the lift will transport the pallet upwards to a shuttle with integrated grippers. The integrated grippers will grab a layer of 5 bags of the pallet and ride this to the emptying process. Here the shuttle will drive the bags over rotating blades and a unique shaker system. This unique shaker system will ensure that the bags will be emptied for 99.98%. the product will be collected in the product hopper.

Normally we equip the main control cabinet with an HMI. In this case the main control cabinet is mounted in a space were there is no overview over the machine.

Because operators like to have a complete overview of the machine, we have equipped this machine with a control cabinet at the front.

With the HMI that is mounted inside this control cabinet you have complete control and overview of the emptying process.

The capacity of these machines is between 10 and 30 tons of granulate per hour. This depends on configuration of the machine and product.

Screw compactor

The screw compactor is an efficient, cheap and eco-friendly solution.

The empty bags will fall via the empty bag hopper onto a short screw that is located inside a tube. The screw forces the bags through the tube into a bag that is clamped around the end of this tube with a special band. The pressure of the screw eventually compresses the bags about two thirds. A limit switch will detect if the screw compactor is full.

Capacity: 100 – 200 bags
Power: 3 kW

Every machine configuration is possible

Our machines can be configured or adapted completely according to the wishes or specifications of the customer, please contact us for the possibilities.
