Abstract (en)

[origin: EP3441316A1] Description of a filling machine (100) for bags (S) with an opening (B), comprising: a dispensing head (240) for a product to be packaged, and a handling mechanism (105) to feed the bags and stop them one at a time in a filling position (P5) with the opening (B) in line with the dispensing head (240);whereby this handling mechanism (105) comprises: a first and second flexible transmission part (110A, 110B), each of which runs inside a closed circuit along a route that comprises an operational section (120A, 120B) and a return section (125A, 125B), whereby the operational section (120A, 120B) for each of these first and second flexible transmission parts (110A, 110B) is substantially straight and parallel with the operational section (120A, 120B) of the other flexible transmission part, and two sets of grab plates (140) secured in sequence with the first (110A) and second flexible transmission part (110B) respectively, whereby the grab plates (140) are each fitted with a shaped side profile (150) and arranged such that, along the operational section (120A, 120B) of the flexible transmission parts (110A, 110B), the grab plates (140) secured to the first flexible transmission part (110A) are adjacent to the grab plates (140) secured to the second flexible transmission part (110B), and the shaped side profile (150) of each grab plate (140) secured to the first flexible transmission part (110A) defines, with the shaped side profile (150) of at least one grab plate (140) secured to the second flexible transmission part (110B), a holder (155) for the opening (B) on a bag (S).
