Product Category

The SBCS is an automated, dual clip packaging system designed for large diameter shot bags filled with explosives emulsions for open pit, quarry, and construction blasting applications. It is engineered to improve operator ergonomics and safety, as well as reduce labor. The operator performs only the simple task of loading an empty shot bag onto the machine. Then the bag is filled, clipped, and discharged automatically. In many instances, SBCS can reduce labor requirements by half.
