The new Beumer bag-in-bag system quickly and reliably packs filled paper bags individually or in groups with a weather-resistant plastic film. This protects the contents against moisture, dust, insects and other environmental influences during storage and transport. The system is easy to integrate into existing filling and packaging lines.
The impermeable film keeps dust from escaping from the filled bags, and it prevents product losses. The films have thicknesses of 30 to 100 microns, which makes material costs low. The outer packaging in the paper bags does not require an intermediate layer made of PE, a fact which also cuts costs and increases filling performance. The highly efficient system is so reliable that ultrasonic welding of the bags is usually not necessary, according to the company.
The Beumer bag-in-bag, offered to customers in cooperation with Tentoma, has a wide range of uses. For the Beumer Group, the focus is on packaging of bags, but the technology is also suitable for goods with lengths of up to 8 meters and product circumferences of 600 to approximately 5,600 mm. Users can integrate it seamlessly into their work processes by simply installing it in existing feeding line. The bag-in-bag supplements the Beumer fillpac inline packer and the Beumer paletpac high-performance palletizer.
Bagging, film packaging and palletizing can be easily and seamlessly combined in a continuous production line. Expensive modification and system changes are unnecessary. The Beumer bag-in-bag is designed for inline packers with a capacity of up to 800 bags per hour. The system can be configured for three different applications: a semiautomatic insular solution, a fully automatic palletizing, packaging and palletizing line, or an integrated solution in which machines can be switched on individually. It can also be adapted to specific customer requirements.
