Bühler develops automatic bagging station for powdery products with Premier Tech 

Bühler, in partnership with leading Canadian packaging equipment manufacturer Premier Tech, announce the launch of the Chronos OMP-2090 B, a fully automatic bagging station.

The new bagging station was developed for a wide range of powdery and other non-free-flowing products. It delivers maximum productivity through full automatic operation, bagging accuracy and high product and operational safety.

This new system for powdery products is designed to increase productivity, ensure safety, and accommodate a wide range of bags, as the need for advanced and efficient packaging solutions grows.

With decades of combined experience in the industry, Bühler and Premier Tech have once again demonstrated their commitment to innovation by expanding their portfolio to meet the increasing demand for higher packaging capacities in mills.

“The performance and reliability of the fully automatic bagging station Chronos OMP-2090 B lifts open mouth bag packaging to the next level. Operational safety and precision increase overall mill efficiency, maximise raw material yield, and ensure safe distribution of the valuable products of our customers and partners,” says Marco Chialina, head of business unit digital sense at Bühler.

The Chronos OMP-2090 B features a bag opening system that delivers maximum efficiency with highly reliable operation. Its bagging accuracy – ±50 g at 2σ (25 kg) – is made possible by incorporating dosing and weighing technology and intelligent controls.

Its robust bag handling concept delivers optimal uptime and has a capacity of up to 900 bags per hour (25 kg bags).

Alexis Michaud, partner relations director at Premier Tech Systems and Automation, adds: “At Premier Tech, we leverage our decades of expertise to deliver high-performing, food-safe, and cost-effective automated packaging solutions. This dedication to quality and innovation ensures that businesses in emerging markets have access to the automation level they need to compete. Our solutions empower them to enhance their operational efficiency and product quality, ultimately contributing to their long-term success.”

The Chronos OMP-2090 B will be available in all markets with the exception of the US, Canada, and the European Union member states.

What started as a close collaboration between Bühler and Premier Tech in August 2019 evolved into a fifty-fifty joint venture in July 2020. The aim of the joint venture is to develop and manufacture new cost-effective packaging solutions based on Premier Tech’s packaging and robotic palletising experience.

Operating in Wuxi, China, the joint venture focuses on serving the food and feed markets globally.

The partnership between Bühler and Premier Tech provides Bühler’s customers with full access to Premier Tech’s portfolio.
