Automatic bag cutter

Factories that have to remove products from transit bags for further processing will significantly improve the efficiency of this production step with this system, which, among other things, can lead to time savings of up to 50 per cent.

The bag cutting system is designed to be an integrated solution and is used when feeding in the bags, which are brought to the unit on a shelf trolley or in a container, for example. The employee controls the automatic unloading of the trolley or container and has the relevant bags on a working level, where they are then manually aligned and brought to the knife on a conveyor belt; non-ergonomic and time-consuming bag handling thus becomes a thing of the past.

The special circular knife with a pressing mechanism is designed in such a way that it only cuts the desired section cleanly, residue-free and across the whole width. The product itself is not damaged by the knife during the cutting process.

Subsequent to the cutting process, the bag is emptied by hand and the product slides into the prepared container. The employee does not come into contact with the product.

A high throughput rate is achieved thanks to the ergonomic working methods and the partially automated processes. The knife can be replaced quickly and easily as and when required by the operator without the need for any special tools.

Using the ITEC • ATTEC bag cutting system can significantly optimise internal material flow systems while at the same time achieving higher output rates. Besides unleashing rationalisation potential, the machine also offers clear advantages in terms of occupational safety as well as bringing about ergonomic improvements.

 

Weighing device

This is a special system for weighing and testing various products. The entire system is movable and features a right- and left-hand side, transferring the products to a freezer conveyor belt via a common conveyor belt.

Work steps of the system:

  • The film must be placed on the conveyor belt manually for unrolling on the scales.
  • The film unroller controls the speed to the conveyor belt via an optical slack control system.
  • The products are aligned and placed on the scales manually.
  • The products are transported across the scales where they are weighed while lying on the film.
  • The conveyor belt transports the weighed products further down the line.
  • The pusher receives information from the scales. Products within the tolerance range are not pushed.
  • There is a fixture to accommodate an E1 crate for collecting the pushed products.
  • The conveyor belt transfers the non-pushed products to the freezer conveyor belt.
  • The display shows the average product weight per minute and the weight of the current product.
Conveying system for cardboard boxes

A cardboard box elevator system for the safe and guided transportation of empty cardboard boxes across several levels.

High speed combined with low wear and quiet running are just a few of the many advantages of the system.

Since many packaging workspaces are automated nowadays, controlled conveying is a necessity. We have other technology and applications especially for cardboard packaging in our range of products. Simply talk to us.
