High-Speed, Automated Bulk Bag Emptying Station


The fully automated Flowmatic EF500 bulk bag unloading system is one of the latest additions to the Palamatic Process material handling equipment portfolio. The super sack discharging station is fed by a set of motorized conveyors that supplies the hydraulic gripper. A pallet stacker is integrated to evacuate the empty pallets once the bulk bag is lifted by the gripper. Autonomous handling of the bulk bags is done by the hydraulic gripper system, mounted on a bridge crane, which transfers the bulk bags from the conveyor to the discharge hoppers. The bulk bag is opened via cutting by cross or "U" shaped blades depending on the bulk bag design. Once empty, the bulk bag is automatically discharged to a bulk bag compactor. The only manual intervention required for this system is the unloading of the stacked empty pallets and loading of the bulk bags to be emptied.
