How does our plastic bag opener machine work?

Our automatic bag opener machine can be fed from a conveyor belt, grabber or shovel with bags. The bags fall onto a drum fitted with hammers. The slowly revolving drum takes the material along an adjustable comb which is also fitted with sturdy hammers. The space between the comb and the drum can be easily adjusted by means of spindles which makes it easy to process several types of material: large bags, small bags, bales of paper or plastic material etc. After opening the bags, the material will fall from the bottom of the machine onto a conveyor or into a chute.

A bag opener machine with clever controls

The BOA bag opener drum is driven directly by a transmission, which absorbs overload. The RPM’s and capacity can be easily set by means of a frequency control. As soon as the machine detects an overload, the infeed of bags is immediately stopped and the drum will turn in the opposite direction for a short period of time. The bag opener machine also has an adjustable cleaning mechanism, which prevents any material wrapping around the drum.
