Big Bag/Multi Pack Handling

KMG snack food multi-pack handling systems can produce 2,3,4,5,6 same or multi-mix packs in a multi-pack format. Packets are fed from storage hoppers by either air blowing or belt elevation and fed in a controlled and streamed manner to the weigh head. KMG has designed and built a purpose built product reject system positioned between the weigher and bagmaker for multi-pack reject.

Typically KMG conveying belts feed single packets from primary packing machines and elevate to a KMG stainless steel hopper with a live belt bottom. Discharge from this hopper is controlled by a KMG EMC2 vibratory conveyor. Packets are  transferred via a flighted belt elevator up to a vibratory feed system to the multi pack weigh head.

Accumulation Hoppers

Hopper placed between two vibratory conveyors to accumulate product or a hopper to accept batch tipped product.

Belt Conveyors

The principle of a belt conveyor is very simple – product is conveyed by sitting on a belt that is moving around one driven roller and other idle/return rollers. This type of conveyor can either be friction or positively driven.

Packet Blowing Systems

Typically our big bag handling systems are either connected to a snack food on machine seasoning system allowing multiple bags of same or different flavours to be packed in big bags or sacs, or we take packets from bulk storage hoppers connected to primary packaging machines and transfer to and from big back packing systems.

Either system involves elevating the packets; traditionally pneumatic conveying would have been used but with recent packet material changes flighted belt elevators are now used to avoid damage to bags in transit.

In certain circumstances we have designed and manufactured vibratory conveying systems that transport just one flavour type to multiple big bag stations. Transfer to each outlet is achieved using the innovative Autoflow Plus vibratory distribution system which has no mechanically operated gates, instead by powerful electro-magnetic drives to gently steer the product towards and away from the outlet. The choice of conveying system and the conveying surface is important here to ensure zero product damage.

KMG multipack lines can be found in over thirty countries, particularly in the Middle East where sacs prove popular with supermarket customers. All our systems are tailor made to each specific client application.
