26.06.2017 Bag placer improves bagging capacity

Beumer, Beckum, Germany, has released further technical details about its new bag placer for valve bottom bags and flat valve bags which was unveiled at interpack in May (see EBS News for week of 20 March 2017). It has been designed to operate in association with the new BEUMER fillpac machine. With its standardised modular design, the new bag placer provides a variety of set-up options. 
With the version for valve bottom bags, the gripping system and the application unit apply the bag from the bag ream safely on to the filling spout. The drive technology used in combination with the electric coupling of both servo drives of the gripping arm and the application unit minimises the number of necessary mechanical components. An oil-free vacuum ejector ensures low-maintenance operation. Owing to the fact that the gripping arm is supported on both sides, it keeps running very smoothly even at an output rate of 6000 bags per hour. The operator can use this version for PP, PE and paper valve bottom bags. Bag lengths of 350 to 650mm and bag widths of 230 and 550mm are possible as well as valve widths of 80 to 160mm. 
With the version for flat valve bags, the operator can chose between two designs, depending on which side the placing unit is positioned. In order to considerably reduce its footprint, the bag placer can be set up at an angle of up to 60 degree by using the optional turntable. This bag placer is used for woven PP and PE bags with lengths of 600 to 800mm, widths of 400 to 550mm and valve widths of 125 to 150mm. Its capacity is up to 2400 bags per hour. 
Capacity and efficiency of the BEUMER fillpac can be increased with the new bag placer and the ream magazine; the gripping system and the application unit (below) apply the bag from the bag ream on to the filling spout of the fillpac, which can be seen on the left.
