PanPac Engineering A/S reduces costs with a new fully automatic big bag filling system

PanPac Engineering A/S has introduced a newly patented system for robot operated handling of big bags. It allows fully automatic big bag filling to be built into existing filling stations. Accordingly, it helps reducing costs by half and increasing competitiveness for the customer.

Big bag filling stations are used to fill standard big bags with various bulk materials such as powders, grains and granules. Typically, an operator manually attaches the bag on the loading spout before the material pours down the spout and into the bag.

“Our robotic system uses a loading spout with various lengths allowing us to reduce the height of the filling machines by 1.5 m. This means that the customer does not have to build a new filling station or reconstruct to make it fit,” explains Managing Director Morten Nysted, PanPac Engineering A/S, and continues: “More companies have replaced the operator with a robotic system enabling them to save manpower and gain a faster, cheaper and more accurate filling process. However, a fully automatic system usually requires a very large investment as process manufacturers must replace their existing filling machine to install the system.”

Thanks to its new patent, PanPac E­ngineering A/S is able to offer a fully automatic big bag filling system that can be built into existing filling machines and consequently save the customer from investing in both a new filling machine and an automatic system.
