FBI launches next generation folder
Flomat Bagfilla International Ltd (FBI) has followed up its BagSqueezer design (see Bulk Materials International May/ June 2002, p22) by introducing the automatic BagFolder, representing the first of a new generation of automated FIBC folders that, the company says, will cater for "every conceivable type of FIBC."
FBI claims that the new system means operators will no longer have to wrestle with unwieldy discharged FIBCs. The integral extraction connection ensures discharged FIBCs can be folded safely. The BagFolder will accept any size or type of woven polypropylene FIBC and is pneumatically operated with in-built safety features. It can be floor, bench or wall mounted, and takes less space than the table or floor area normally required to fold an FIBC.
