The New SP MKII Sack Placer/Presenter is suitable for automatically presenting single sacks to a self-adjusting clamp.

Paper or plastic sacks can be positioned onto the sack magazine with a holding capacity of up to 300 sacks. Operation is by picking the rear of the sack then a motorised web peels the sack from the stack enablling clean pick up of the sack. The sack is then presented open mouth first to the stretch arms and is opened by two heavy duty guided cylinders. The stretch arms are motorised with an electric motor so that adjustment can be made with the rotation via the HMI screen.

Total control

Plc and HMI control and inverter drives give the operator total control and ease of adjustment.

The New Pacer MKII, an electronic weigher with a user-friendly display, is capable of weighing from 10kg up to 25kg of root crops at up to 18 tonnes per hour with 25kg size sacks, and can comfortably weigh, bag and stitch up to 100 tonnes a day.

Heavy duty black rubber belts feed produce into two electronic weigh hoppers mounted on three load cells, giving precise weighing to the last object fed into the hopper. The cross conveyor positioned under the hoppers provide an extra weighment to increases throughput. A self adjusting sack clamp offers ease of use when presenting different size sacks. Following an impressively fast and accurate stitch the bag can then be fed onto a pallet and neatly stacked by one of PACE’s mechanical handling robots. Independent belt adjustment and heavy duty framework offers the user durability and reliability.

Noted reliability and improved ease of use

Notable advances on earlier versions of the old style clamping device for bagging now includes 100% stitch fulfilment, along with electronic weighing scales highly tuned for accuracy. The Pacer MK II Twin Tank Hopper Electronic Weigher/Bagger is noted for its reliability and improved ease of use.

Additional Features

  • Fully Programmable electronic control display
  • Load cell weighing
  • Self-adjusting sack clamp
  • Cross conveyor feed
  • Complete interface for working with Orion Sack Placer

PACE install ’12 bag per minute’ potato hopper/weigher and bagger

PACE Mechanical Handling has recently completed the installation of its latest reconfigured twin weigher in to a large potato growers near Spalding, the Pacer MK II Twin Tank Hopper and Electronic Weigher.

Watch the video of the hopper/weigher in action!

The MK II, an upgraded edition of PACE’s earlier highly successful weigher, is capable of an increased throughput of 18 tonnes an hour (12 bags per minute) and comfortably meets the customer’s requirement of weighing, bagging and stitching 100 tonnes a day.

100% stitch fulfilment

Notable advances on earlier versions of the old style clamping device for bagging now includes 100% stitch fulfilment, along with electronic weighing scales highly tuned for accuracy.

Reliable and easy to use

The Pacer MK II Twin Tank Hopper Weigher, noted for its reliability and improved ease of use, weighs and transfers the correct weight on to a cross conveyor which feeds directly into the presented bag. Following an impressively fast and accurate stitch the bag proceeds onto a pallet, neatly stacked by one of PACE’s mechanical handling robots.
