  3. FFS Bags

    I have much experience filling 25kg bags of plastic pellets from Windmoller & Hoelscher Diamont FFS.
    You need to start with something - suggest pallet size.
    Then decide bag pattern & rough bag size to fit that pallet.
    Will tell you what width of FFS film roll you need - maybe you are there already.
    Operator needs to adjust actual bag lenth on the machine as bulk density varies - easy to do, but people need to be aware they must do it.
    Obviously pallet load will be looser or tighter as bag length changes.

    I. Temple,

    My company is also using W&H Diamant FFS. Do you use the Libraweigher from Librawerks for your weighing system?


  5. Packaging - Form Fill & Seal Bags

    No we do not use the Libraweigher
    - we have Paxall inline double bucket dumping scale above the
    machine - one bucket filling & weighing,while the other is
    dumping, & a Toledo Scale "legal for trade" checkweigher
    (looks like a short belt conveyor) in the bag conveying system
    The checkweigher controls an underweight bag kick-off system to recycle underwewight bags for refilling.

  6. Proper bag size

    Just contact Haver & Boecker in Oelde/Germany. They operate a laboratory to investigate into the material properties to determine the apprpriate bag dimensions. (ph.: +49 2522 30-0) .
