The solution for automatic unloading of bags and bales
Copal Handling Systems has developed a so-called Spidergripper for the unloading of sisal bags, polypropylene + polyethylene bags and jute bags & bales (non-woven) filled with for instance cocoa beans, coffee beans, nuts or tea. With this gripper, which can be easily connected to a Copal C2 Container Unloader, it is possible to unload jute bags automatically. Not only does this mean a saving on time and costs, but also avoids heavy physical effort of employees.
The jute bags are taken out of a container by a unique fully automatic mechanism and placed on a telescopic conveyor belt. The bags are transported by the conveyor belt and then fully automatically palletized for further transportation or storage.
Loading and unloading containers manually goes together with high costs, is time consuming and labour intensive. Automatic unloading with the Copal C2 improves this situation significantly.
To avoid physical constraints on employees and to prevent permanent injuries, Copal Handling Systems has developed and produced container stripping and palletizing systems. Besides reducing physical effort of your employees, these systems reduce operational costs and ensure a faster and more efficient unloading process.
The Spidergripper can pick up bags up to 100 kg, turn 180 degrees and has several rotation and tilting points. Sensors ensure the automatic positioning of the gripper.
This means that bags and bales which are not lying flat, but are for instance lying askew over each other, can be picked up and deposited straight on the Copal C2 conveyor.

All Copal systems can be fitted with quick-couplers, which means that grippers can be exchanged in a matter of minutes. The grippers are suitable for unloading various types of goods and materials.
Besides the Spidergripper for picking up bagged goods, Copal Handling Systems also offers the customer specific solutions for palletizing bags and bales, fully automating the entire process of unloading and palletizing bagged goods.
