Model 72B Bag Palletizer

Model 72b palletizer for industrial bags
Eliminate manual bag palletizing and reduce the risk of back injuries and resulting high insurance premiums with this automatic Model 72B bag palletizer. This versatile bag palletizer runs industrial-sized bags of agricultural, chemical and building supply products, providing square, secure pallet loads, regardless of bag dimension variation. Its low level design means no stairs or platforms are required, and all palletizing operations and maintenance points are conveniently located at floor level. Its compact design makes this bag palletizer easy to fit into existing packaging lines.

Features and Benefits


Economical floor level palletizer

While this bag palletizer operates at floor level, it accepts bag feed from any level. So you can enjoy the benefits of low level operation with low, medium or high level product feed.

The clean, open construction and floor level access points of this bag palletizer simplify routine maintenance. On-floor operation allows plant personnel to monitor palletizer operation while performing other tasks.


Touch screen operator panel puts you in control of all palletizing operations

The color display shows real-time operating data and allows independent operation of all palletizing functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings. It provides an easy to follow sequence for auto and manual functions, and auto-setup for daily, shift or batch runs. Preventative maintenance messages automatically alert the operator for periodic or routine maintenance.

Model 72B Gentle bag orientation

Gentle bag orientation

Bags are gently turned 90, 180 or 270 degrees (depending on the desired pattern) by a pop-up turning device. Bags may be positioned so that the bottom (butt) of the bag or the printed panel will face out on the pallet.

Model 72B Complete bag infeed control

Complete bag infeed control

The flattened bags are detected by sensors, counted and staged before entering the bag palletizer's orienting conveyor to ensure proper spacing and eliminate potential damage from bag-to-bag contact.

Model 72B Positive load transfer

Positive load transfer

The transfer table has a roller stripper plate which reduces friction, allowing bag transfer without squeezing or shifting the contents which can deform the bag. The edge of the transfer table is stainless steel in a tapered design to allow bags to glide smoothly from table to pallet.

Model 72B Square layers form high quality pallet loads

Square layers form high quality pallet loads

A rear layer retainer plate and two side layer squaring plates ensure that each layer is centered on the pallet. The layer is held firmly to retain it squarely during the deposit cycle.


Designed for your needs today and in the future

While each machine is pre-programmed for bag sizes and pallet patterns to accommodate your current requirements, flexibility for future requirements is built in. A complete selection of bag infeed and pallet discharge alternatives are available, as well as many bag orienting and accumulation options.
