The GX1000 Sack Placer has a robust construction and is made from stainless steel and aluminium. It has a small bore vacuum system that gives smooth, fast and reliable operation on a wide variety of plastic, paper and woven poly sack materials.
A sack is lifted from the pile at the rear of the sack placer and a slatted conveyor indexes and separates the bag, taking it forward to a precise point, ready for opening.
This opening point is controlled by an adjustable stop for accurate positioning. Two sets of suction cups then open the bag allowing the swing arm blades to enter and grip the bag. The sack placer swing arms then rotate the bag up to the sack clamp.
The GX-Series sack placer control system utilises the latest PLC technology and incorporates a very user friendly operator interface (HMI Screen) which has a clear display and powerful new features. Other features include the ASI communication system, Modem option for remote diagnostics and editing, visual fault display. Operation is through a combination of electrical and pneumatic actuators.
Packing speeds depend on many factors such as weigher speed, filling time, conveyor speed etc. Possible speeds for the GX-Series are 1000 sacks per hour or over 15 bags per min.
The Pacepacker range of sack placers work with almost any fully automatic net or gross weigher or volumetric filler.
