In response to a special request from a local food producer and packaging house, Enmin Vibratory Equipment has designed a state of the art Vibratory Bag Flattener to satisfy the very specific requirements of their client.
Seeking to import a suitable Bag Flattener, their client was dismayed by the agricultural approach to the overall design offered by many overseas companies. Since the equipment was to be used in the Food Industry the Bag Flattener needed to satisfy the requirements of the HACCP standards.
Enmin Vibratory Equipment has over many years manufactured Vibratory Bag Conditioners to assist in de-aeration of the product to ensure a maximum payload is achieved and in turn save on transportation costs. Bag Flatteners on the other hand are designed to shape the filled and sealed bag to provide the best possible shape. Bags that are out of shape due to the filling process are difficult to pack into cardboard boxes and allow correct sealing of the cartons. The Enmin Bag Flattener will accommodate bags up to 250 mm in width.
The design of the Enmin Bag Flattener involves two basic components. One is the Vibratory Compaction conveyor which subjects the filled bag to controlled vibration and in the process fluidizes the material causing it to flow into all the sections of the bag. As the bag is being transported forward the second component comes into play. This is the overhead conveyor platen which can quickly be adjusted to increase or decrease the pressure being applied to the bag as it is vibrated and conveyed forward. The action of both the Vibratory Compaction Conveyor and the Overhead Platen Conveyor produces a gentle squeegee action as the bag is flattened and conditioned.
Since the vibration conveyor and the platen conveyor are adjustable in controlling the vibration, speed of conveying and finally the squeegee pressure, a variety of bag dimensions up to 250 mm wide, can be accommodated as well as adjusting for a variety of differing materials.
The Enmin Bag Flattener is constructed in stainless steel and has been designed to be easily adjusted without the use of tools. Safety issues relative to the Food Industry have been addressed as well as noise considerations. The overall compact design will marry with existing or new belt conveyors and if necessary can be supplied as a bolt down or mobile facility. Since the initial installation a further Bag Flattener has been delivered to the same customer.
