Automated bulk bag system makes packaging a one man job

October 8, 2008

This totally automatic bag filling system allows one person to operate two bag filler systems and is able to fill up to 40 bags per hour. The material is introduced into the system using the customer''s process or a bulk bag discharging station, at which time the material is packaged into bulk bags using the bag filling equipment. The system will be designed to fill the bulk bags to the predetermined weight at an accuracy of ± ½% per container with NBE''s hang-weigh scale system. According to the manufacturer, this system is as automatic as hanging a bag and walking away, creating an efficient and safe work flow.
