Options and Installations
FOOT OPERATED SWITCH
Allows operator to control conveyor start/stop while having hands free for other bagging operations.
For applications that require the bag to be routed bottom first onto another conveyor system. The Rapat Bag Kicker option is operated by a pneumatic cylinder, which pushes the bag from a vertical position (right after the filling and sewing operation) to a horizontal position for easier handling.
The Bag Turner option is placed between two conveyors. The bags move along the first conveyor, and are tipped on their side, and rotated by the shorter conveyor on the Bag Turner. The bags are then properly positioned to move onto additional conveyor systems. (Photo at right)
The Rapat Bag Flattener option consists of a smaller powered conveyor mounted to the top of a conveyor. As bagged materials pass between the two moving belts, the material is distributed evenly within the bag, allowing uniform palletizing, stacking and easier shipping.
