PLT0001-0101-RD

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 on the personell. In manual packing of firewood in bags, every single log is touched and moved by hand on it’s 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 lead to a safer workplace with more variation of tasks during the day.
