Deploying Robotic Valve Bag Placers for Safe, Consistent Production
For those who have been in a valve bagging facility, it’s no secret that it is one of the most labor intensive and demanding jobs out there. It’s work that’s done in dirty, dusty, and challenging environments.
To reduce the amount of time employees spend in this environment, and still maximize production, a robotic arm is the best way to do go. Maximum up-time is exactly what you get with nVenia's latest automation design: the HAMER Brand Model 2400 Robotic Valve Bag Placer.
This machine automates the placement of valve bags onto most valve bag fillers with one of the fastest robots in the industry. The other key piece of this system is the bag carousel, which is what really sets us apart from our competitors.
The carousel system is designed to eliminate the time it takes to do bag changeover with our Live Load bag carousel.
This is a high-capacity system that can store up to 400 bags of multiple different sizes at once. There is no need to make any adjustments to switch between bag sizes once they’re loaded. No adjustments. No tools. No downtime.
When it does come time to re-load bags, this can be done safely, from outside of the cage, while the robot is still running consistently.
That’s how our customers achieve the highest production. Consistency day in and day out – with less reliance on manual labor – often with 25% greater output.
