Accuweigh’s Bud-Pak branch recently finalised the commissioning of an entire bagging line, robot palletiser and stretch wrapping system for CSD’s Westbrook Plant near Toowoomba.
CSD Grains Pty Ltd (Cotton Seed Distributors) recognised the benefits of using one of Australia’s oldest names in turn-key packaging equipment, Bud-Pak, by awarding them the contract to supply and install a complete turnkey packaging line for their new soya flour plant.
To cope with the high output demand of the bagging line, the latest generation automatic bagging system from Technipes in Italy was selected to perform the automatic bagging functions. The Techniped bagger is located on the mezzanine floor and includes a twin screw net weigher, support structure and fully automatic bagging machine incorporating a ‘double pinch’ heat sealer. The bagging machine turns the sealed bags ninety degrees and releases them down a gravity bag slide to the ground floor for palletising.
Because of the limited floor space, the Fuji-Ace palletising robot is used to place the empty pallets on the loading station conveyor. The palletising robot also places slip sheets onto the pallet prior to stacking the bags. A Technipes automatic stretch wrapper and top sheet applicator is used to wrap the loaded pallets, which are then transferred through to the warehouse for removal and storage by forklift.
Bud-Pak is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accuweigh Pty Ltd (Australia’s largest industrial weighing and packaging company) who are the sole Australian representative for Technipes SRL in Italy. Technipes has an extensive reference list worldwide in the flour industry, and hence an appropriate selection for this particular application. Bud-Pak is also an authorised distributor for Fuji-Ace robots and already has numerous palletising installations in Australia and New Zealand.
