Since already a few years, palletless filling of bigbags for products like milk powder, baby milk powder, starches,…has become a hot topic and even a standard.
Filling bigbags without pallet inside the clean room means off course that the bigbag must be positioned on a pallet in the basic care zone. Delaere has now launched a second version of its successful Bag on Pallet system. The big difference with the first generation is that the pallet is never in contact with the position the filled bigbag is transported to coming from the clean room. With the first generation Bag on Pallet, the filled bigbag was gripped by gripping arms and the pallet was moved under the hanging filled bigbag. The Bag on Pallet GEN2 is picking up the filled bigbag by means of gripping arms which are integrated in an electrically driven movable frame. This movable frame is shifted towards the pallet with slipsheet and is thus avoiding cross-contamination.
Another innovation is the adjustable force of the gripping arms.
The Bag on Pallet GEN2 system was already successfully implemented by Delaere for a number of customers in France.
