Forklift loading

TBMA Big-Bag unloading systems for forklift loading are designed to hang the bags in the unloading frame using a forklift truck.

These Big-Bag unloading systems are suitable for processing single or multi-trip bags, with or without a plastic inner bag. Discharge takes place in, for example, a hopper, screw, rotary valve and/or pneumatic transport.


  • Dedicated steel construction with rigging frame
  • Unloading capacity maximum 20 bags per hour
  • Suitable for Big-Bags with and without outlet spout
  • Suitable for Big-Bags with and without inner bag

Modular concept

The basic models can be expanded with the following options:

  • Frame suitable for most types of Big-Bags (pic 1)
  • Hopper with vibrating motor for efficient product discharge (pic 2)
  • Rubber dust membrane for low-dust emission
  • Clamping hopper for dust-free discharge of Big-Bags with or without inner bag
  • Vacuuming of empty Big-Bags to minimise dust emission
  • Roll-up mechanism for empty inner bag (pic 3)
  • Drop-stop for interim closure of the bag (pic 4)
