Concetti launches two-in-one bagging system

Italian automatic bagging and palletising system manufacturer Concetti has launched a new packaging system for animal feed supplements called the IGF 1200 Gemini.

Italian automatic bagging and palletising system manufacturer Concetti has launched a new packaging system for animal feed supplements called the IGF 1200 Gemini.

The Gemini can manage medicated and non-medicated feeds within the same machine while minimising the risk of cross contamination between product batches.

The filler is equipped with two separate weighing and filling systems, which work alternately to reduce the risk of transmitting active substances between products, along with an efficient cleaning system.

Preformed bags, once full, can then be sewn or heat sealed based on the needs of the manufacturer before being conveyed to the palletiser.

Installation of the Gemini requires less space when compared with two different packaging plants.

An automatic bag holder with selectable openings means the system can manage a wide range of bag sizes, including pre-made open-mouth bags from 2.5 to 25 kilograms, flat or gusseted bags, or raffia bags.

It can handle several types of granular or powdery products and can produce up to 800 25-kilogram bags per hour, or 1000 five-kilogram bags per hour.

The machine can be configured with an additional four-column palletiser, suitable for partially-filled bags.
