Technical specification

Capacity: 20 to 210 lbs/bag
Lifting stroke: 1,700 mm (up to 2,400 mm stroke )

Palamatic Process Inc has the solution to handle all types of paper, plastic or hessian bags up to 210 lbs. The operator can maintain a rate of 6 to 9 bags per minute (depending on the area to be covered).
These installations allow raw material infeed of your process but also ensure palletization of your finished products.

A safety system is integrated to protect the operator in the event of a power failure: the tube expands slowly and the load is gently laid on the ground. There is no risk of the load being dropped (our systems are used for the handling of glass, automobile windshields, televisions, etc.).
All this with little maintenance for a highly efficient system.
