For over 35 years Palamatic have led the market worldwide in materials handling innovation. Palamatic’s focus on powder process and its specific handling problems is a culmination of years of proven solutions.


The name Palamatic is synonymous with sack opening, providing dust-tight handling equipment for industries processing powder products in sacks. The handling of powders, flakes, and pellets in any environment is potentially one of the dirtiest, time-consuming, labour intensive and hazardous processes in the industry. Complying with the COSHH Regulations is a driving force for employers to reduce occupational ill health caused by operator exposure to powders causing lung disease, skin irritation, asthma, and other serious consequences.


Palamatic has considered the need for operator safety by designing a range of sack opening machines that control environmental dust emissions as well as combining low maintenance and high throughput when required.
