SYMACH palletizers to go straight to shipping more efficiently

Flexibility characterizes all SYMACH Palletizer models. Our engineers have the knowledge and expertise, to customize the solution to what fits your needs best. The machines are adapted to palletize varying products, for example, pet food, minerals, onions, carrots, potatoes, grass seeds, cartons and bakery products. The palletizing rates can vary from 13 to a maximum of 36 bags per minute, depending on the model of machine.

Accurate stacking
An important feature of the SYMACH palletizer is the unique design of the head. The smooth flat bottom fully supports each bag that slides into the head, while the centralizing plates direct the product exactly to the center, before stopping in position at the end plate of the head. This determines the exact position of the bag inside the head, allowing the bag to be placed accurately in the final position on the pallet, as programmed in the stacking pattern.

Unlike most other palletizing systems, such as the traditional gantry systems or bag grippers, the SYMACH palletizer will stack any bag, regardless of type, individually with overlap, to ensure a neat stable pallet. Inaccurate stacking or even damage to the packaging is a problem of the past with the head of the SYMACH palletizer.

Hybrid head
The optional hybrid head is a multifunctional design for bags, cartons, and crates: the centralizing unit places any type of carton or crate precisely on a pallet without the drop that is used when stacking bags.

The unique design of the head of the SYMACH palletiser, in combination with the user-friendly machine software, enables you to program to a variety of stacking patterns.

Steamfeeder innovative feeder based solutions

In 1990, the Streamfeeder Product Line revolutionized the direct mail industry by substantially increasing mail throughput on Bell & Howell Phillipsburg and Inscerco Mailcrafters inserting machines.  By 1996, the Streamfeeder Product Line had not only become the industry leader in feeding automation in the direct mail industry, but the packaging fulfillment industry as well. 

Following the successful path of the Streamfeeder Product Line, the Sure-Feed Product Line came to market and over the next twenty years, the two product lines dominated the mailing, packaging, and print fulfillment industries that they served. 

Today both product lines are manufactured by Thiele Technologies and still lead the marketplace with high-quality innovative feeder based solutions, including inkjet feeders, inserter feeders, card attaching systems, batch-counting systems, and more.

FILLstar bag filling machine

The Star Series Automatic Bag Filling machines are designed for bagging all types of free-flowing materials using laminated poly-woven, polyethylene, and paper open-mouth bags.

The function of the machine is to select empty bags from a bag magazine, open the bags and automatically place them onto the filling spout for filling from an overhead scale or filling device.

Bags are presented under the spout by mechanical clamps, that consistently maintain the form of the flat bag (including the gusset) until the bag is transported through the closing station.

The unique design of the universal filling spout guarantees the maximum opening of the spout for a large bag size range, for maximum product throughput.

Designed in FDA approved High-Density PolyEthylene, to offer excellent sliding properties along with high impact strength and good wear resistance due to its low coefficient of friction.

The modular design of the machine allows the integration of various closing stations in the main frame.

High level of flexibility

  • Bag type: open mouth, gusseted and non-gusseted PE, PE-PET, polywoven and paper
  • Bag size: from 4 to 50kg
