Optional Components Of Big Bag Filling Systems

Let’s talk a little about the components of these systems designed according to the application area and the product to be bagged.


It is designed to move the filling head forward on the horizontal axis. In this way, it is possible to fill different big bags from the center.


It is used to shorten the cycle times of big bag bags, to open the folds in the bag and to ensure that it takes the filling shape.


It is used to ensure that the material is evenly filled throughout the bag in filling applications where optimum bag capacity and stability are required.


In enterprises where big bags with various filling throats are used, it can be easily disassembled and assembled before the operation with the filling throat butterfly.


The double-walled filling neck is designed to help evenly distribute the material during filling and to prevent dusting during the process.


Dust-free filling can be achieved by absorbing the dust generated during filling with a jet filter.


In enterprises where bags of various heights are used, the big bag holder heights can be adjusted to the desired level with 1mm precision via the HMI panel with the hydraulic system.


The bag hold system can be selected as manual or automatic if desired. In automatic systems, the bag release time can be automatically selected by the user or can be timed as desired.


In this option, 2 bag hold hooks (diagonally 1 in front and 1 in the back) release the bag in a controlled manner, thus preventing the bag from collapsing in one direction. Since the operator is in control, it prevents work accidents and product wastage caused by the bag tilting in one direction at the end of filling.


It allows filling products into rigid open-mouthed containers such as barrels and containers without dusting. The filling container can be capped after the filling process.
