The new way of emptying containers!

With a conventional container tipping device, a container is pivoted overhead and the container contents are usually dumped in a separate storage bunker.

This has several disadvantages:

  • Due to the drop from a tipping device into a storage bunker of partially Damage to the parts of several 100 mm can result from the parts falling out and hitting each other. The result is pseudo rejects to be avoided.

  • The emptying process with a tipping device is very loud due to the drop height of the parts, depending on the nature and resonance of the workpieces, noise peaks> 120 dB (A) can occur.

  • The storage and dosing bunker required in addition to the tipping device means that additional parking space and additional energy are required.



Our solution:

BGE container emptying system - more than just a tipping device!

Container emptying system type BGE - more than just a tipping device!

Many types of containers can be emptied with the help of the FMB glide conveyor technology without tipping device and additional storage bunker.

With the container emptying system BGE (container sliding emptying) it is now possible for the first time to gently and quietly convey the products to be supplied directly from the transport container with the help of FMB sliding conveyor technology, and to dose them into the downstream device such as a vibratory bowl conveyor.


BGE container emptying system with slide conveyor technology - more than just a tipping device!


As one of the leading manufacturers of sorting and feeding technology, we are showing, in addition to our proven components such as High-performance vibratory bowl feeder, spiral slide conveyor, large bunker with slide conveyor technology and feeding systems for workpieces that cannot be stowed, again an innovative feeding solution as a result of decades of experience and know-how.


The BGE container emptying system is a novelty on the market and is only offered by FMB!


Container emptying with slide conveyor technology

More than just a tipping device.

A standard parts container is placed on the vibrating platform using a forklift. The container is closed from above with a hydraulically operated lid, clamped firmly in the swivel frame, and by min. Pivoted 90 ° into the emptying position.
Now a bulkhead in the lid is opened and the system starts to vibrate. The vibrations are directed by the system in such a way that the standard parts container is emptied using the sliding conveyor method.


The flow of parts at the transition to on-site plant technology is monitored. If there is no flow of parts, the container is swiveled back into the basic position and unlocked. The container can be changed.

No additional storage bunker required.




Advantages of container sliding emptying:


  • Product protection

    The material to be conveyed does not fall from a tipping device from a greater height into the storage and dosing bunker, but remains in the container. This avoids unnecessary drop heights and protects the products.

  • Noise reduction

    The container emptying system is based on FMB sliding conveyor technology, i.e. the products are not thrown. The conventional micro-throwing principle with high noise generation and rough parts transport is NOT used here. The noise level in production can thus be reduced.

  • Variable dosage

    A hydraulically opening bulkhead in the container cover allows the conveyed goods to be metered into the following devices regardless of the swivel angle. This prevents the parts from falling out like a conventional tipping device.

  • Energy saving

    The drive in conjunction with our control electronics continuously records the loading status. The output of the vibratory drive is regulated depending on the load.

    Full container = higher output, almost empty container = lower output.

    Good and uniform dosing can be achieved through the detection.

  • Space savings

    The container emptying system combines the container tipping device and the additional storage and dosing hopper. This means that less floor space is required compared to conventional devices.

More than just a tipping device!




  • Residual emptying

    As with conventional container tipping devices, depending on the container type, 100% emptying cannot be guaranteed. Smooth wall containers are ideally used.

  • Limitations

    Long, thin products; Molded rubber parts; Products that tend to build bridges; interlocking products; etc. cannot be fed.

as well as in all other areas in which the material to be conveyed is to be metered out quietly and gently from the transport container.


Further systems for container emptying


  • Container emptying system BGE-2 with sliding conveyor technology:
    Weiterentwicklung der BGE-1 ohne hydraulischen Behälterdeckel für größere und nicht rieselfähige Werkstücke.
    Die Entleerung erfolgt wie bei der BGE-1 ebenfalls mit unserem niederfrequenten Schwingantrieb, der Schwenkwinkel wird entsprechend dem Füllstand im Behälter stufenweise nachgeführt.

  • Container tipping device BKG-1 for various standard containers:
    Hydraulic tipper with a tipping angle of 130° for most applications.
    It is emptied into an adequately dimensioned storage and dosing bunker, which can hold the complete filling volume of the container and meter it to the downstream conveyor system.

  • Emptying platform EPL-1 for special containers, e.g. containers with a side wall opening:
    The container is fixed on a swing frame by means of power clamps. The side wall is now opened in a targeted manner and the container is slowly emptied by the oscillating drive. With this system, there is no need for a tipping device or a storage bunker.

  • Silo emptying system SES-1 for silo container 2052 with central scissor closure:
    Emptying of silo containers with free-flowing workpieces.
    The scissor lock of the silo container is automatically opened with a pneumatic cylinder so that the workpieces can be removed with the driven discharge chute and fed to the subsequent further processing in doses.
