With its standardized modular design, the new bag placer provides numerous set-up options. The user can set it up at any angle by adding an optional turntable for example. This reduces the required floor space considerably. The system is equipped with an ergonomic control terminal. The improved Human Machine Interface concept makes controlling the bag placer easy and intuitive. It can also automatically adjust to different valve bag formats.
The drive unit and the gripping arm are driven automatically by servomotors, ensuring precise positioning and energy efficiency. The gripping system and the application unit apply the bag from the bag ream safely onto the filling spout. The drive technology used in combination with the electric coupling of both servo drives of the gripping arm and the application unit minimizes the number of necessary mechanical components.
