Description:

REVOLUTIONISING THE PRODUCTION OF FIREWOOD IN BAGS

PREMIUM QUALITY BAGS AT INDUSTRIAL OUTPUT RATE 

Vepak is a unique machine for efficient production of firewood in bags. The machine gives you neatly packed bags with a much higher production rate than that which is achievable with manual labour.

Bagging Chambers for 20cm (8"), 25cm (10") or 30cm (12")

Bagging with Nets or Plastic Bags

 

SEE HOW IT WORKS:

PRODUCTION RATE:


Vepak V1 stack up to one log per second.

The production rate in terms of bags per hour or bags per operator will vary depending on the size of the logs, number of logs in each container and so on. Please also take into account the following:

  • Performance will vary based on the quality of the logs and the skill of the operator
  • Feeding of logs pause during empty cycle and begin automatically after filling
  • Empty cycle of the packing chamber into bags/boxes take 2 seconds

THE BENEFITS:


Manual operations in industrial settings can lead to repetitive motion injuries to the operator. In manual packing of firewood in bags, every single log is touched and moved by hand on its way from a pile to the bag.

Vepak V1 reduce the manual handling of logs to a minimum by automating the stacking operation. 

Vepak V1 help you bring packing up to speed with the other steps of the production like cutting timber and producing logs. Faster production in the bagging department leads to a safer workplace with more variation of tasks during the day. 

 

OPERATING PROCEDURE


1

2

The equipment is operated from the packing station, where the operator controls the filling of wood into bags alongside start/stop procedure. The container can be filled with either dried or fresh cut wood. The out feed from the container is automated.

3

 4

The wood cleaner allows logs to travel on top of the rotating blades. While bark and debris fall between the blades into a separate container.

5

6

Once exited the cleaner, the logs are stacked end-to-end in a queue onto a conveyor system, leading to the packing box, where the logs are stacked. The in-feed automatically stops (1) during manual inspection through the door, or (2) when the volume of logs in the chamber has reached a set level. A light in the control panel blinks to notify the operator that the box is full.

7

8

The operator pushes a foot pedal to release the logs into the bag. The foot pedal also actuates a landing plate beneath the bag to take the weight upon filling. While the bag is being removed the machine automatically start to fill the chamber with the next round of logs.

 

EASY OPERATION AND PRODUCTION MONITORING


 

Four LED illuminated push buttons sit right in the door panel of the state of the art control system next to the operator.

The basic functions are:

  • Start (green button)
  • Stop (red button)
  • Manual override control (white button)
  • Reset the safety system (blue button)

Two 3-step twist buttons give the operator full control of the operating speed and output rate.

Two emergency stop buttons located at the operator's side and at the opposite side of the machine ensure safety for the operator during operations.

 

You Can Go Online and look through your production statistics when and where you like. Vepak V1 note down every single bag with time and date of production and even the number of logs in each bag, and give you a live feed of what you have in stock.

In terms of service and support, our engineers can assist you remotely by linking up to the machine, giving advice on maintenance based on usage and so on.
