11 February, 2010

In 2004, Bud-Pak / Accuweigh installed a complete bagging and palletising line with the capability of handling pails, valve bags, and cartons filled with fertilizer for the United Farmers Bibra Lake plant in W.A.

The Bud-Pak / Accuweigh net weigher was supplied with assorted filling attachments to enable it to fill the various container types which are then transferred to the Fuji-Ace EC-101 robot palletiser.

The Fuji robotic palletiser also has the capability for handling the various container types in use and competently stacks them uniformly onto pallets supplied from a Bud-Pak / Accuweigh automatic pallet dispenser.

From there, the completed pallets are transferred to an automatic stretch wrapper, then to the accumulation conveyor for removal by fork truck.

This Bud-Pak / Accuweigh turnkey filling and palletising system can handle between 700 - 900 containers per hour in sizes of 10, 25 & 40kg.
