Enmin Vibratory Equipment Bag Flattener

Tuesday, 15 May, 2012 | Supplied by: Enmin Pty Ltd



Bag flatteners are designed to shape filled and sealed bags to provide a shape most suited to packing. Bags that are out of shape due to the filling process can be difficult to pack into cardboard boxes and can impact correct sealing of cartons. Enmin Vibratory Equipment’s Bag Flattener accommodates bags up to 250 mm in width.

The Enmin Bag Flattener involves two basic components. One is the Vibratory Compaction Conveyor that subjects the filled bag to controlled vibration and in the process fluidises the material, causing it to flow into all the sections of the bag.

As the bag is being transported forward the second component comes into play: the Overhead Platen Conveyor, which can quickly be adjusted to increase or decrease the pressure being applied to the bag as it is vibrated and conveyed forward. The action of both the Vibratory Compaction Conveyor and the Overhead Platen Conveyor produces a gentle ‘squeegee’ action as the bag is flattened and conditioned.

Since the vibration conveyor and the platen conveyor can be adjusted in terms of vibration, speed and squeegee pressure, a variety of bag dimensions up to 250 mm wide can be accommodated and adjusted for a variety of materials.

The Enmin Bag Flattener is constructed in stainless steel and has been designed to be adjusted without the use of tools. Safety issues relative to the food industry have been addressed, the company claims, as well as noise considerations. The overall compact design will suit existing or new belt conveyors and can be supplied as a bolt-down or mobile facility.
