Sack Handling SMB constructs bag palletiser

Palletiser plants have two main tasks: The handling of high volume of packages with high speed in the final packing and the precision of the positioning with the product preparation. In order to be able to convert each customer requirement is the goal at SMB International Ltd, where the concern emphasise in- house know-how of design, manufacturing of machines, electro- technology application of switch and control philosophy. With the modular kit system and the attachments like bag turning device, stations, and sack-rows - bar-band, layer palletisation or empty-palette-magazine allows the installations of small and larger systems.

The latest bag palletising plant designed by SMB Engineers was for a renowned German chemical industry player. This machine operates in the capacity area from 2200 sacks per hour. This is applicable to 50-kilogram-sacks in the 5 layer league. It can be chosen according to application between the series with low or high finish. The result is a standard or a very high performance package. Typically application pictures of the 3 layer, 5 layer, 6 layer, 8 layer, or 10 layer group combined with a sack-trick-equipment, provides for an optimally geared, space saving and stable stacking of the sacks on the palette. In this case, it is about a situation collector with low finish. The sacks are supplied the palletiser over a curve sponsor. Before the trick-clamp, the sacks are marked. Equipped with formatting borders, the palletiser provides the proper alignment of the sack- ware. An empty-palette-magazine with role-track donates lays paper-bows the empty-palettes and a slip sheet dispenser on the palette. N. i. O place is after the palette-exercise. ("not in order") as well as a stretch coiler. All part-installations are intended with the necessary security-facilities as well as security-light-barriers with muting function. The respective task of stacker and decrease-places are secured with induction-bows. The sack- supply is carried out from three different sagging plants AF1 to AF3 to the palletiser. The installations are connected electrically together to it.


At first, the reception takes place one empty-palette-batch of the automatic empty-palette-magazine, the automatic isolation and preparing of an empty-palette. At emptying of the magazine, an

optical warning appears from the third to last palette. The unpacking procedure of the palette-magazine is interrupted during the downloads with new palettes, in that recognizes the induction loop a forklifts let in the ground. After the stapler left the bow, the magazine can work on. The existing sack-transportation-ribbons near the supply strain become headed for palette-manner the palletiser supply by the sacks kind-purely as well.

The sacks are handed over by the belt-sponsor of the sack-trick- equipment. The sacks center these and turn them by 90 degrees in accordance with the situation-picture left, 90 degrees right or by 180 degrees. On the following sack-row-bar-ribbons, the individual sacks are put together dynamic pressure-loosely to rows. The bag row pusher hands them over gentle to the sack- situation-table. After completion of a complete situation, the situation-table begins for a very long time until it stands more highly, as the empty-palette or the finally cast off situation. Afterwards, it proceeds over the palletiser station and sinks, until it reached the optimal storage space-height. The bag situation is aligned and held by position centre holists, while the position table opens. The situation is put on the palette or the finally cast off situations by it. Every situation is formed reflection-like to the prior one. Through these changing pictures, the necessary assembly stacking is created. After achievement of the put in situation-number, the ready palette is driven out from the palletiser. A new empty-palette is reloaded simultaneously and is prepared on the palletiser station. The prominent described functions and facilities guarantee a measurement-containing, form-stable stack.


The Stick-disk-on-casually provides the reception one bow- batch, the automatic isolation and the transportation from the empty-palette. At the adjustable part-emptying of the magazine, a warning-signal sounds at the magazine. It could be put camping the bows completely on a palette into the reception intended for it.

The palette-runway is after the palletiser and stretch coiler where the palettes are taken.

The started machines as well as installation parts are equipped with all necessary protection-appliances in accordance with the machine-protection-law and the accident-prevention-rules of the occupation-cooperative and meet with the requests of the EC-guidelines and the EC- harmonized norms, in each case the newest stand in accordance with. The electric equipment corresponds to the VDE-regulations, especially VDE 0113 as well as the accident-prevention-rules for electric installations and operational funds as well as the requests of the EC- guidelines and the EC-harmonised norms. "All palletiser plants are equipped with a modem to the long-distance-diagnosis and long-distance-maintenance – an enormous advantage if it is about short-term support of commissioning, maintenance or services", Andreas Heckel, management of the SMB Group, explains in conclusion.
