Huron Technology Corp. has introduced a flattening belt conveyor, known as the Bag Flattener Conveyor, which is designed for optimizing end of the line production of bagged materials.
The Bag Flattener automates the bag flattening process for a safer, more consistent, and controlled method of layering bagged products on pallets prior to wrapping and shipping. A pneumatically actuated adjustable air bag opening between the two inverted belt conveyors allows the Bag Flattener to manage a range of bag sizes.
The Bag Flattener can process up to 12 bags per minute, ranging from 5 to 50 pounds each. It is suitable for a variety of bagged materials, from grains and seed, foods, and lawn and garden to concrete and insulation. It is available in both horizontal and inclined models to fit a variety of application needs.
