The Smart Solution for Transporting Bulk Bags

The BigBag Divider by Cabka-IPS is now available

With the BigBag Divider, Cabka-IPS brings its latest pallet innovation on the market. It has been engineered as a smart solution for transporting and storing bulk bags, while at the same time, solving a number of identified challenges due to damages caused from wooden pallet usage.

In the last few months, a development model of the BigBag Divider has been tested by Cabka-IPS across all sectors with selected customers. The knowledge gained from these usability tests have been incorporated into further development work. This revolutionary new material handling solution has gone from concept to execution in less than a year. 

Custom-designed for firmly supporting big bags, the BigBag Divider is free of wood splinters and sharp edges and protects against abrasion and damage. The main elements are the four-sided fork shafts, which enable easy and effective filling and transport using a forklift. The tunnel design protects the bags from contact with the fork arms, which in turn can be retracted smoothly.

The transport of bulk bags on standard pallets poses a lot of challenges. Bags filled with powder and granules can shift causing the bags to settle making it difficult to remove from a standard pallet. There is also the risk of big bags overturning during transit, which can lead to wasted time and money. Nails, splinters and sharp edges on wooden pallets tear the bulk bags causing product to spill out. Wood can also create sanitation issues in a production environment due to potential contamination.

Therefore, the BigBag Divider offers solutions for all of these real-world situations while making it a reliable source for transport and reducing process costs. Its nest-ability, when empty, requires very little storage when in transit by truck or sea freight containers. Not only does it save on space, but it reduces CO2 emissions as well. Bulk bags are a main solution for transporting and storing bulk goods, and the BigBag Divider is the product to depend on.

The BigBag Divider is now available in 43 x 43 inches. It weighs 16.5 lbs. and is offered in Polyolefin, suited for returnable containers, logistical circuits and long-term use in warehouses. Its flat and stable contact surface is ideal for automated conveying systems. Specially raised edges prevent bags from slipping or overlapping, further reducing the risk of damage. Thanks to its smart product design, the BigBag Divider creates the reliability necessary for transport and storage while minimizing downtimes.

From May 3 to 5, Cabka-IPS will be presenting the BigBag Divider at the Powder & Bulk Solids International (PBSi) in Chicago. Interested visitors will find the Cabka-IPS team at Booth 4126.
