Palletizing of food and foodstuff

Do you fill food and foodstuffs into bags? If so, BEHN + BATES is your right partner. We have specialized in your products. We deliver food-optimized packaging and palletizing machines for valve bags, pre-fabricated open-mouth bags, FFS bags and big bags.

Food products are natural products. They are influenced by climatic conditions. Production and storage vary depending on the region and continent where they are processed. All these are aspects having an influence on the selection of the packaging or palletizing technoloy. If it is best adapted to your needs, it provides you with considerable and lasting advantages.

We know about the specialities of food packaging. It does not matter whether you fill

we have the right solution for each type of bag and for manual or fully automatic operations.

Tread new paths - with us - because you profit from our experience.

Rice & corn: Easy handling, high output, excellent weights

Granules & grains - e.g. crystal sugar, rice, corn and seeds - are easy to handle. They have excellent flowing characteristics and do not raise dust. High packing capacities are possible, filled weights are excellent.

For decades our gravity packer has proven its worth for bagging granules and grains into valve bags. Equipped with a special open-mouth bag filling spout it is even suitable for filling pre-fabricated open-mouth bags.

Open-mouth bag filling to perfection is reached by our fully automatic systems:

  • TOPLINE® for pre-fabricated open-mouth bags
  • FFS system for FFS bags made from an endless gusseted film

Sugar, dextrose, maltodextrin & sorbitol: Clean packaging of sweet products

Sugar and sugar derivatives have a wide range of different grain sizes, from very fine to very coarse grains. All of them have to be handled properly in order not to destroy the corn structure. Therefore, only an adequately designed filling machine guarantees that the product is filled gently and fast at the required speed.

Our pneumatic packer has proven its worth as an all-round packing machine for filling sugar and sugar derivatives into valve bags. Our TOPLINE® system presents the most reliable automatic solution for pre-fabricated open-mouth bags.

In future the FFS technology will be the trend-setter: It forms the bag  from a gusseted tubular film, fills and seals it. Thus, the bag size is automatically adjusted to your product - and the consumption of PE film is reduced.

The BEHN + BATES palletizing and packaging technology

Your bags are packed. They are tight, clean and offer optimum protection of your products. But: They have not yet arrived at your end-users' sites. Before they have to be stacked accurately and the pallets have to be packed carefully in order to:

  • protect the filled bags against damage.
  • optimally use the available loading space and avoid loss of space due to irregular bag piles.
  • avoid loss of time during handling and transport because of badly stacked pallets.
  • prevent the pallets from tumbling due to irregular bag piles.

Together we are strong

Optimally stacked and packed pallets help you save time and money. As overall costs can thus be reduced, the profit is increased. In addition, nicely stacked pallets have an excellent advertising impact.

In order to successfully implement these goals in your company we offer an extensive programme of packaging systems and palletizers in close cooperation with our sister company NEWTEC BAG PALLETIZING:
