Automatic Sack Discharge and Extruder Feeding SystemTurnkey Solutions for Plastics Industry
Polimak has succesfully finished a turnkey polyethylene handling project for a global composite manufacturer. Client's demand was to achieve a seamless bulk material handling solution from raw material delivery to feeding point of production line. Project incorporated automatic sack discharging system, pneumatic conveying system, stainless steel storage silos and extruder feeding system. All components of the system were controlled from a central PLC system for fully automatic operation.
The core component of the project was automatic bag discharge system which enables bulk materials coming from sacks to be unloaded in an efficient and safe way saving manpower, time and operational costs. 15 to 50 kg bags on plastic or wooden pallets are placed on belt conveyor of the system together with pallet by forklift. Conveyor moves the pallet to the bag lifting unit. The automatic gripping system grips the bags on the top with pneumatically driven claws. And moves them horizontally
