IBC container systems

Planning of complex, automated production
Our IBC container systems are suitable for dust-free filling and emptying of process engineering systems such as mixers, screens, furnaces, etc. To optimize your workflow, transport and docking processes can also be automated. Whether free-flowing or difficult-flowing media, we have the favourable and suitable solution ready. Cleaning-friendly and dust-proof transitions, suitable for fast product changes and flexible powder handling for feeding through internal transport systems such as standard industrial trucks, cranes, roller conveyer, lifter, etc. are part of our scope of delivery.

The bulk material is first transferred to containers via appropriate filling stations. Following filling/discharge adapter are available:

Discharge of various packaging into IBC

The IBC containers as well as big bags (FIBC) are automatically placed on the container feed station with the help of roller conveyors or shuttle systems (AGVs) and emptied. Automatic identification systems (barcode, RFID, etc.) prevent confusion. Depending on the containment requirement, docking is carried out by different types of docking adapters, which ensure dust-free product feeding into the subsequent system. The container remains on the container feed station as long as the bulk material type is involved in the recipe. In the event of a change, only the emptying fitting is closed and the container fixation is unlocked. The IBC can then be transferred back to the warehouse at defined transfer points. Optionally, the control is also available interfaces to higher-level ERP systems.

Siemens S7 hardware is used as standard for the control system. By using scales at the feeding points, batch dosing can be carried out during filling and emptying. Recipe management can be organized locally or in the customer’s ERP
