Nowadays, Big Bags are worldwide used to handle, store and transport a wide variety of powdered and granular products, such as construction materials, fertilizers, chemicals, cereals, food products.
Also called Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC) or bulk bags, they are available in different types and one of these is made with four lifting loops and an internal Baffle Net.
The Baffle Net is sewn into the 4 sides of the bag and allows the material to flow smoothly into all the corners, thus preventing the bag from expanding in the process and maintaining the cubic form.
The Baffle Net can be successfully made with COMEZ crochet knitting machines and is constructed with several types of yarns (such as PP, PE, PL, flat or fibrillated).
The COMEZ machines can be either mechanically or electronically controlled, and usually come in gauge 10 n.p.i.
The significant production rate allows to produce up to 12 single Baffle Nets at the same time on the machine, for a quantity of 20 m/h for each end.
