Tong’s heavy-duty 160° box and bag tipping machine is one of the most popular potatoes and vegetable box tippers within Tong’s bag tipping range and can be specified for complete and efficient emptying of boxes, big bags or both.
Available in a choice of 3 models; box, big bag or box and bag tippers, the 160° box and bag tipper feature the latest heavy-duty tipping mechanism design, with enhanced linkage strength.
Its advanced design allows boxes to be tipped through a wider arc of up to 160° which ensures boxes are emptied fully, while also requiring less energy to operate.
The advanced box and bag tipping mechanism design also puts less strain on bearings and linkages, resulting in a reliably strong and robust mechanism, with minimal servicing and maintenance requirements, increased energy efficiency, and higher throughputs too!
OUR BEST SELLING BAG TIPPING MACHINE
Like all Tong tippers, the 160° bag & box tipper is designed to meet stringent safety standards. Featuring a box movement siren and empty beacon, as well as light guards which meet the full requirements of EC legislation.
The fully automated machine can handle boxes up to two tonnes or can be custom-built to effectively tip and empty 1.25-tonne jumbo bags.
Tong’s 160° bag & box tipper can be combined with a second bag tipping machine as well as either a forward or cross conveyor, giving it capabilities of emptying over 50 tonnes of crop per hour. Contact Tong Engineering regarding your tipping requirements today.
BUILT-IN POWER EFFICIENCY
All Tong box tippers are built with an energy efficient power-saving mode which identifies and shuts-off the tipper when not in use.
ENHANCED TIPPING RANGE
Designed to tip boxes through a wider arc of up to up to 160°, Tong’s heavy duty tipper ensures boxes are emptied fully, while also requiring less energy to operate.
HEAVY DUTY LINKAGE MECHANISM
Tong’s Heavy Duty 160 degree box and bag tipper offers the ultimate flexibility in tipping boxes and big bags up to 2 tonnes. Built with the latest tipping mechanism and enhanced linkage strength, the 160 degree tipper offers reliable tipping performance.
OPTIMUM SAFETY LIGHT GUARDS
Tong box and bag tippers are designed to meet stringent safety standards, featuring a box/bag movement siren and empty beacon, as well as light guards, which meet the full requirements of EC legislation. The light guards become active when the tipper cradle begins to lift and any breaking of the security beams will stop the machine.
Tong offers an automatic hydraulically operated clamp box lid as an option on all box tippers. The hydraulic lid automatically lowers onto the top of the box once the box is placed in the tipping cradle. This ensures a secure hold of the box within the tipper, and completely removes the chance of anyspillage of crop. When a full clamp lid is fitted, it incorporates a hydraulically opening flow door which opens to release crop once the box is tipped. A half clamp lid can also be fittedmeaning half of the lid is open, so as the tipper lifts in increments, controlled by crop sensors, the crop gently flows out of the box.
The option of an in-line forward conveyor is a popular choice for a continuous and even feed of crop from the tipper, as well as offering holding capacity whilst the box or bag is changed. The forward conveyor is fitted at the outfeed of the tipper and is available in two standard options – 1.8m long x 2m wide or 3m long x 2.2m wide. The crop conveyors are powered by inverter direct drive variable speed motors, and a crop sensor fitted to the top of the conveyor controls the tipping mechanism and the even flow of crop from the tipper to the conveyor. Should there be no crop or a gap in the flow of crop on any part of the belt, the crop sensor automatically accelerates the belt until crop reaches the end of the belt, then the speed returns to normal.
Similar to the in-line forward conveyor, the option of a cross conveyor is offered at the outfeed of all Tong tippers. This option helps to ensure a continuous flow of crop, and offers crop-holding capacity whilst the box is changed. It is particularly popular where crop is required to flow at a 90 degree angle from the orientation of the tipper, often where space is limited.
