High-Speed Bag Turner Gently Orients Bags for Palletizing

November 27, 2012

Heavy feed bagged products are oriented gently, positively, and almost 30% faster than previously possible by A-B-C's high speed pop-up repositioner for the company's bag palletizers. This device turns bags 90, 180, or 270 degrees, depending on the desired pattern, allowing manufacturers to position the product so that the bottom (butt) of the bag or the printed panel will face out when palletized. The turner is operated by the intelligent control system of the palletizer, programmed for each pallet configuration. When bag orientation is required, the bag is conveyed into position above the turner, and the turner moves vertically to lift the bag from below, supporting the entire weight of the bag as it is positioned. This efficient action maintains the bag's shape for efficient palletizing. If product orientation is not required, the repositioner retracts below the roller conveyor, and bags are smoothly transported above the turner for palletizing. Enlarged for added stability, the bag repositioner is stamped from heavy-gauge steel and motor-driven for accurate, three-shift-a-day operation.
