Bagger & De-Bagger
The Asmech Systems Automatic De-bagger is a simple design which offers a high-quality system of rigid construction; with proven long lasting reliability.
It can take bags of product on pallets 8 layers high, taking one layer, removing the bag and then singulating the batch of bottles onto an Asmech standard slat conveyor ready to be filled.
It uses a series of electrical motors, belts and pneumatic cylinders to handle the product and has a function that deposit the pallets into a small storage area to be re-used. It is suitable for any hygienic environment and is capable of various speeds. The Semi-Automatic De-Bagger comes complete with de-bagging table.
The Automatic De-Bagger can also be manufactured to different hands, and different size pallet infeeds all depending on customer specification and preferences. In addition, it offers continuous flat belt pack accumulations, because the machine does not need to be stopped when a new pack is introduced onto the accumulation belt.
We also offer a semi-automatic version, where bags are manually loaded, cut and removed, and for high speed applications we can offer a dual width high speed de-bagging machine.
Asmech Systems Semi-Auto De-baggers are ideal for automatically supplementing bottles into filling lines. Asmech’s De-Baggers are PLC controlled and servo operated. An operator unloads packs of bottles from storage onto the machine, strips the plastic bag from the pack of bottles and allows the machine to de-bag the pack of bottles onto the conveyor in single file. These machines are fully adjustable to cater for both square and round HDPE or PET bottles.
The Asmech Systems bagger is used to automatically bag square, rectangular, and round containers typically from blowmoulders for either storage or export. The unique value of this machine is the ability to bag different containers from different blowmolders simultaneously. The containers are conveyed into the machine, isolated into rows and side pushed to form a rectangular array of containers. Varying array pattern characteristics such as the number of bottles in a row, the number or rows in an array and nested rows versus non-nested rows can all be selected from the operator touch screen.
There are two accumulation chambers so that two different types of containers can be formed into arrays at the same time, alternatively the machine can be dual infeed to allow product to be accepted from two systems. Once an array is complete, it is pushed into the center bagfill position, then pushed into a wall of film that wraps around the array, and then the trailing side of the array is sealed.
The containers are then conveyed into a side sealing area where both sides of the film are tensioned and sealed, forming the bag around the containers with film technology. Once the layer is formed it is conveyed to a pick-up location. From this position, a precision servo driven stacker picks up the bundle, rotates or indexes linearly, and gently places the bundle on a stack.
Once a full stack of bundles is accumulated in one of the stack locations, a beacon indicator alerts an operator to take away a full bundle stack. The operator then resets that stack location.
The Asmech Systems Bagger accumulates bottles from a single lane conveyor infeed, pulls the bag over the bottles and seals the bag. Once sealed the bag is pushed out of the machine; based on a 4 Pint (2 Litre) Milk Bottle the machine will bag 100 bottles per minute.
We also offer a high-speed option to bag 200 bottles per minute; this option requires a twin lane bottle infeed.
