Expanded optimized filling technology with the BEUMER fillpac.
The intralogistics professional has expanded its product portfolio with the BEUMER fillpac filling machine offering, as single-source provider, equipment and systems for packaging lines from one source.
The new machine can be flexibly integrated with existing packaging lines and can be optimally adapted to the customer’s situation. What makes the BEUMER fillpac unique is a specific weighing electronics which ensures the weight accuracy of the bags. Rejects caused by too high or too low filling weights can nearly be excluded.
The BEUMER fillpac is equipped with a weighing unit that communicates permanently with the filler neck via a specific software. The automatic bag weight adjustment determines the exact filling weight of the bags, thus enabling the exact degrees of filling during the filling process.
The user can design his packaging lines more efficiently as it is no longer necessary to remove under or overweight bags from the line. In addition, the quantity indicated on the bag always corresponds to the real volume.
The BEUMER fillpac is designed for capacities ranging from 300 to 6,000 bags per hour and can fill various bag types. If equipped with a special bag placer, it can even fill HDPE (High-density polyethylene) bags.
The three-position cylinder that regulates the coarse and fine flow is protected from dust, because it is positioned vertically and outside of the dirty area. The cylinder for bag discharging is also located in the dust-free zone above the filling spout. This solution minimizes wear and tear on both cylinders and, therefore, ensures longer service life.
Almost all built-in components of the BEUMER fillpac are freely available commercially. This reduces delivery times for spare parts and lowers capital costs for the user. Also, the system is designed so that it is easily accessible for maintenance.
The generously dimensioned filling impeller reduces fill times, thus increasing throughput. The BEUMER system is also equipped with an ergonomic control terminal. The improved human-machine interface concept makes work simple and intuitive. Furthermore, BEUMER has designed the system in a way that individual customer requirements or special wishes can be implemented flexibly and cost-effectively.
