The empty bag, stacked on the bag magazine, is taken from the robotic arm, it opens the bag’s valve and position it on the fill spout, where a double detection device checks the proper placing to enable the packer to fill the bag.
The Transfer is so famous for its proven simplicity and reliability. At today we’ve sold and installed more than 2000 of those around the world.
It can reach a max speed of 400 bags/h.
The new TRANSFER – the further evolution of the industry recognized optimal automated bag placer for valve bags. Recently it was redesigned by adopting the latest actuation technologies further improving the automation. The implementation of closed-loop hydraulics renders all the various rotating and tilting movements especially smooth.
Unlike conventional pneumatics, the hydraulics deliver a shock absorbing action, boosting fluidity in bag retrieval and bag feeding. Articulation is progressive and servo-like with no abrupt movement and impact against mechanical stops typical of conventional pneumatic actuation. Vibration is eliminated.
The automation is completely silent: hydraulics does not require any cyclical discharges which usually generate noise due to the use of pneumatics. Empty bags are picked up by a specially designed pneumatic cylinder featuring a drilled shaft through which vacuum is drawn by a high reliable and maintenance free vacuum generator. This solution facilitated saving 50% energy over older designs, as the system works only when necessary.
