Budpak’s Automatic Bag Placers for Cornstarch Producer

Bud-Pak is supplying two automatic bag placers to Penford ‘s Lane Cove plant for use in their cornstarch products bagging lines. The Technipes automatic bag placers will be interfaced with the existing Erkomat valve bag packing machines currently in use.

The Technipes model Transfer/R automatic valve bag placer is suitable for internal or external valve bags constructed from paper, polypropylene and polyethylene with a valve flat width between 90mm to 180mm. Bag weight range is 5kg to 50kg.

The valve bag placer is simple, reliable, and compact, requiring very little maintenance, and can be installed in any working environment. It comes complete with either a static single station empty bag magazine, or motorised multi-station magazine which automatically transfers the empty bag stack to the pick-up location. Each station has capacity for up to 50 empty bags.

The two automatic bag placers will be controlled by a single Siemens S7-200 PLC. An Allen-Bradley PLC can be supplied as an option.

Bud-Pak will also supply and retrofit Technipes pneumatic bag clamps on the existing valve bag packers. The pneumatic clamps feature a bag detection system to ensure the empty bag is correctly placed on the filling spout before the filling cycle commences.

Located in Lane Cove Sydney, Penford is the only producer in Australia and New Zealand of cornstarch products, as well as specialty starches and sweeteners for food and industrial applications.

Budpak has been in operation since 1974 and has hundreds of bagging, filling, palletising and stretch wrapping installation through Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific. Sales and service is now available from branches in all mainland states.
