The two companies, Erkomat Oy and Thrace Polybulk, have in close cooperation become the leading global supplier of fully automatic filling systems for FIBCs (also called big-bags or bulk bags).

Erkomat Oy specializes in automation packaging solutions for small sacks and big-bags of various powder and granulated materials.

During the last 20 years, Erkomat has delivered many fully automatic big-bag filling systems to manufacturers of fertilizers, fish feeds, metal & mineral powders/aggregates, polyolefin, seeds and the chemical industry.

Thrace Polybulk is a packaging company that has, since the mid 90's, been producing and supplying the automatic filling lines with FIBC's on reels and optimizing the logistics of reel-bags further.

The empty big-bags are delivered on reel and unrolled to a feeding table where a bag liner is opened with vacuum pads and mechanical gripper. The automatic big-bag placer sets bag to the filling spout, inflating and centering it  so that the scale can distribute the product accurately into the big-bag. After filling the liner is heat sealed so that bag is ready for further handling and picked up from conveyor line.

The capacity of the automatic big-bag filling system is depending on the characteristics of products handled. With good flowing products, like granulated fertilizer, the automatic filling system is reaching capacity over 200 big-bags/hour (á 500-600 kg).

Revolutionary technology 

Erkomat is now delivering a new filling system to customers, where very fine mineral powder is filled into 4-loop big-bags with gross scale weighing equipment.

A new developed is a metal clamp closing method where the inlet is stretched, crimped, turned and closed from the outside. It's called ERKOCLOSE-SNC (Swan Neck Closing) closing system and has been used in the first fully automatic lines for 4-loop big-bags.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
