Automatic Counter Bagger with Robotic Bag Palletizer

BW Integrated Systems’ Automatic Counter Bagger / Robotic Bag Palletizer combine our bagging and palletizing technologies within a combined system.  The Automatic Counter Bagger (ACB) counts and separates ends, then bags them for pickup by the Robotic Bag Palletizer (RBP). The Robotic Bag Palletizer picks up the bags of ends from the Automatic Counter Bagger and stacks them on a pallet.  The robot layers snake wrap paper between each layer of ends, while building the pallet, locking in the layers of bagged ends.  Once built, every pallet is consistently straight.
