01:48the correct position before transferred

01:50to the conveyor belt

01:57for moisture sensors detect the humidity

02:00of the bags rejected bags due to

02:07humidity are automatically separated

02:09from the line a sampler takes random

02:17samples of the content of the bag the

02:23banks are transported and automatically

02:25palletized with a high stacking quality

02:29after palletizing the pallets are
