Bag Flatteners are two belt conveyors inverted to each other and used to compress or flatten products. The two conveyors are attached with two linkage arms and air bags. The upper conveyor weight is used in the flattening process. Trackmate belts are typically used, however, other belts are available based on application needs.
The bottom conveyor which is longer than the upper conveyor, typically is mounted on legs mating up to an in-feed and an exit conveyor. The upper conveyor, mounted on the linkage arms is adjusted to the desired flattening height. With both conveyors running, the irregular package enters the flattener and exits compressed or flattened to the required height.
These conveyors are primarily found in the palletizing process where bags need to be flattened for controlled layering on pallets prior to stretch wrapping. Bag Flattener conveyors have also found their way into the insulation and felt industries where controlled flattening is required.
