AUTOMATED SACHET COUNTING & BAGGING
This system is designed to receive sachets from two parallel conveyors at a rate of 160 sachets/min and funnel them into one lane. As this is done, the number of sachets present is counted and they are conveyed into a Sharp Max 12 Bagger until the number entered into the HMI is reached. At this time, the diverter above the bagger closes, staging the flow of counted sachets into the other of its chambers, preventing more sachets from entering the bagger as it closes and seals a bag of sachets. Once the bagger has cycled and a new bag is present, the diverter opens the chamber, releases the stored sachets, and lets the flow continue into the bagger. This allows the stream of sachets to be continuous and uninterrupted.
