The high-performance way of bagging sugar

Fully automatic high-performance bagging and palletizing systems by STATEC BINDER are packaging and palletizing tons and tons of sugar on a daily basis.

From India to Indonesia via Malaysia to Thailand, on to China and across the big ocean to America and on to Europe – STATEC BINDER bagging machines are used worldwide for the packaging of sugar. Whether for large sugar producers or smaller ones, whether fully automatic or manual – we find the right system for each of our customers to meet their requirements.

For more than 25 years, bagging machines from the Austrian company STATEC BINDER have been used in the sugar industry. Thanks to many years of experience, STATEC BINDER is now one of the most sought-after specialists when it comes to packaging and palletizing sugar. Almost half of the installed systems for the sugar industry are located in Asia. The PRINCIPAC, a fully automatic high-performance packaging machine for open-mouth bags, is highly in demand.

The PRINCIPAC is one of the fastest open mouth bagging machines in the world. This is why it is in great demand in the sugar industry. High flexibility and reliability characterize this machine. Whether pillow bags or gusset bags made of woven PP, PE or paper, whether 10 kg filling weight or 50 kg, the PRINCIPAC is prepared for a wide range of applications. With further options, this bagging machine can be optimally adapted to the customer’s requirements.

Due to the corrosive and abrasive properties of sugar, particular importance is attached to stainless parts in the packaging machines. As standard, all parts that come into contact with the product are made of stainless steel. Since there is a risk of dust explosions during the packaging of sugar, all systems for the sugar industry are designed in accordance with ATEX. STATEC BINDER net weighers ensure the correct weight in the bag and the latest bag closing systems ensure secure and precise bag closing.

The packaging lines are completed with a STATEC BINDER palletizing system. Depending on the required output and space conditions, the PRINCIPAL, a high-performance high-level palletizer, or the PRINCIPAL-R, a high-performance robot palletizer, is used to complement the packaging line. Both palletizing systems ensure an equally formed layer pattern and stable palletizing.

“For a long time, our main business was to manufacture packaging machines for fertilizer. There were always a few projects for salt producers and for the petrochemical industry. Over the years, we have become a specialist in the packaging and palletizing of all types of free-flowing bulk materials. The inquiries came from a wide variety of industries and so in the 1990s we also began to manufacture packaging machines for the sugar industry,” says Josef Lorger, Managing Director STATEC BINDER GmbH, explaining the development of the Austrian company. “Today, the food sector and above all the sugar industry are among the most important industries for us. With the ongoing move to fully automatic packaging and palletising systems in Asia, it is becoming increasingly important for customers to find a competent and reliable partner. We therefore see it as our responsibility to make it easier for customers to move to fully automatic packaging lines and to provide them with the best possible advice and support,” continues Josef Lorger.

A total of more than 160 fully automatic bagging machines and palletizing systems for processing of fertilizer in woven PP, PE and paper bags have already been installed and commissioned on all five continents. Due to the sturdy and robust construction, the long-life cycle and reliability of the machines, STATEC BINDER is a highly requested specialist when it comes to bagging and palletizing sugar. In addition, the Austrian company demonstrates consistently that customer requirements have the highest priority and is looking for the perfect solution for bagging and palletizing the various products. For these reasons, many sugar producers rely on STATEC BINDER machines and long-term and successful partnerships are established. One thing is certain for STATEC BINDER: only through the experience and feedback of the customers the machines can be continuously further developed and optimized in order to meet the requirements of the customers and ensure satisfaction.
