The IGF Series are fully automated bagging systems designed specifically for filling and closing pre-made open-mouth bags. The Concetti Group offers several solutions for bagging semi-free flowing mixtures of coarse and fine powders with a clumping tendency as well as animal feed and has a special focus on bag stability and airtight closures to avoid any leakage which could cause contamination.
The compact dimensions of the IGF 1200 are entirely suited to crowded production environments.
Combine the IGF 1200 with the proven belt-fed NET/N weighing scale and an intermediate discharge belt for rapid bag filling and accurate regulation of product flow to the bag holder. In addition, the reduction of trapped air ensures long-lasting attractive packaging and great pallet stacking qualities. It is also possible to couple the IGF with either a net or gross weigher using gravity, belt, or screw-feed systems depending on the product to be bagged.
THE IGF SERIES’ VERSATILITY
Self-adjusting features on various system components allow the same machine to fill and perfectly close flat or gusseted bags in a range of 10/25/50 kg, made of Paper, PE, or WPP.
AIRTIGHT BAG CLOSURE
The IGF series offers traditional sewing or “pinch top” closures. Airtight closures eliminate contamination risks during the bagging and storage processes, which typical valve bag installations do not. The result is nicely squared, geometric-shaped bags ready for palletizing.
The PLC-assisted format change is fully automatic to minimize setup times – in just 90 seconds – without any operator intervention whatsoever. The IGF comes complete with inspection doors and safety devices compliant with the current EC regulations.
DUST-FREE PRODUCT FEEDING AND FILLING
Concetti augers (single or double) are perfect for reducing the quantity of air trapped in the bagging process and are easily disassembled for easier cleaning. The product moves to our IGF automatic bagger class, specially fitted to work flat and gusseted pre-made bags made of paper or cloth. De-aeration probes are then inserted inside the bag to eliminate the air during the filling process, making the bag more stable, compact, and drastically reducing powder in the bagging zone.
The Concetti Group equipment for flours is subject to a particular “food finishing” painting cycle.

OPTIONAL PALLETIZING FEATURES
Vibration and air-evacuation devices on the IGF series machinery favor an excellent distribution of semi-free-flowing mixtures within the bags. This feature enables automated palletization with PS/AA high-push-type level palletizers or the class PS-3A robot palletizer class.
