A bag turner is correcting the orientation of filled bags of animal feeds prior to being sealed closed by a Newlong heat sealer. Supplied by Accuweigh/Budpak, the bag turner was installed at Mitavite’s Somersby plant on the NSW Central Coast to help automate the bag sealing process.
Bag turners are used to rotate the bags orientation on a conveyor line to suit the requirement of the next process, such as a bag trainer/flattener. A bag turner is also ideal for laying bags flat onto a conveyor line for either manual stacking or for automatic palletising by a robot palletiser.
In this application, the bag turner was located after a Newlong heat sealer which seals the bags before they are rotated by the bag turner. Budpak’s bag turners are manufactured in Australia to suit client application needs.
Budpak’s bag turner is supplied as a self contained, free standing bag turner and is suitable for anchoring directly to the floor. The bag turner has integral connections for single phase electrical and compressed air supply.
The bag turner unit includes the PLC and all necessary control items such as photo electric cell, timers, reed switches, etc. A control enclosure is mounted on the bag turner with an On/Off switch and adjustable timers for the Clamp and Return functions. The bag clamp assembly of the bag turner is mounted on a heavy-duty support pedestal and is height adjustable to suit different lengths via a simple hand-wheel arrangement.
Budpak has branches in all states that cater for all bagging, filling, palletising and stretch wrapping applications.
