Hamer Brand 2400 VBP Valve Bag Placer
Our Hamer Brand 2400 VBP Valve Bag Placer provides automated placement of a wide variety of valve bags onto most valve bag filler machines available on the market today. Easily integrated into existing or new production lines, its modular design, single or dual robot system configurations, and extended cabling allows the 2400 VBP to be implemented in various layouts, providing the flexibility needed to meet your performance and facility requirements. Valve bags are utilized in multiple industries including building materials, chemicals, and minerals to package fine/dusty powders, granules, pellets, or mixes/blends of material types.
The 2400 VBP utilizes a 6-axis robot to reliably and efficiently select each bag and place it on the appropriate filler valve. The high capacity carousel allows for nearly double the capacity of traditional conveyorized bag feeding. The unique design of the carousel is arranged in a dual-sided 5 rack magazine which reduces the facility footprint. The LiveLoadTM carousel feature allows an operator to safely reload one side of the carousel racks without interrupting the picking and placing operation. This maximizes uptime and improves overall operational efficiency.
The Model 2400 VBP is available in single or dual robot configurations and can place bags on up to six filling spouts. It can accommodate a wide variety of bag types and sizes – seamlessly switching from one bag type/size to the next – further improving operational efficiency.
