Bagging flour made easy

Filling flour bags by hand is more than tedious. It is a fine thing that this task can now be handled by fully automatic machinery like the Maia MWPG bagging station, built by Bühler, a Swiss company specializing in equipment engineering. This system can fill as many as 900 bags an hour, each containing from 20 to 65 liters of flour or other powdered material. Servo motors by Rexroth ensure high-performance drive power at low energy consumption. To fully exploit the machine’s potentials, Bosch Rexroth and Bühler cooperated closely during the development project. In addition, all the complex motion processes were first calculated using MATLAB software. The motions were then simulated and the optimized movement sequences were then transferred to the IndraWorks engineering framework.
