The filling line is supplied with, among other things, an operator platform incorporating a gate that can tilt forwards up to 15°. The trombone hooks come forward automatically so that the operator can easily suspend the big-bag in the machine. The hooks are self-releasing: the filled big-bag is raised slightly so that the loops are tension-free, allowing the hooks to be rotated, after which the bag is removed. This construction provides a safe, ergonomic and operator-adjustable workplace. The inflatable seal on the filling head also ensures a dust-free connection during filling.
Each suspended big-bag is inflated for optimal filling. The conical vibrating table then ensures that the corners of the bag are filled first, creating a balanced loading of the big bag. The vibration cycles vent and compact the product for maximum filling.
During filling, the big-bag is vibrated several times. The vibration duration and interval time can be fully adjusted to suit the product to be processed and the bag type. During the final 10% of the filling cycle, the lift table automatically lowers for an exact weighing. The product is topped flat, after which a straight, compact and stable big-bag remains, suitable for stacking up to 2 high.
