At NPE2015 in Orlando, Coperion introduced an end-of-the-line system for compounders that weighs, bags and palletizes product after pelletizing.

The form-fill-seal packaging machine, called the IBP 250, features a small footprint and controls that can be navigated intuitively via a touchscreen interface. Its modular design allows an easy upgrade of machine performance to be made without replacing the complete system. Check weigher, metal detector, bag marking system and automatic cleaning can optionally be integrated into the system. The machine also has self-cleaning functionality.

Coperion reports that four such units are up and running at customer facilities. The system can operate at speeds up to 500 bags/hr. In development are higher-speed systems suited for bagging at polyolefin plants.
