Opening of bags supported in [or by] the pallet [or by bagging machine]
Explanation:
This question struck me as curious because of the use of "dos." I thought that it was not a typical use of the word and probably did not mean placed back. So I did some checking and found that it could also mean saddled or supported which got me thinking along different lines. Anyway, "pain" can also refer to bulk. Which in this case I've chosen to imagine it as the bulk bags held by support arms above the loaded pallets as they are being filled with meat.

A bagger machine having a frame, a wicket bar mounted on the frame, a rear clamp cylinder for pressing tabs at the upper edges of the rear sides of a ream of bags against the wicket bar, a carriage mounted for sliding movement on the frame, a suction head on the carriage for attracting the front side of the outermost bag of a ream, a bag opening cylinder for moving the carriage while the suction head engages the front side of the bag to open the bag, a bag clamping cylinder on the carriage for clamping the upper edge of the front of a bag against the suction head, a bag push cylinder for moving a filled bag in a direction away from the wicket bar after it has been filled, a control for momentarily causing the rear clamp cylinder to release the tab of the bag being moved while the bag is moving away from the wicket bar, a conveyor underlying the filled bag to support it after its tab has been released and as it is moving away from the wicket bar, a control for causing the front clamp cylinder to release the upper edge of the bag, and a control for causing the carriage to reverse itself and place the bag holding cylinder and the bag push cylinder in condition for repeating the above-described movements.

Method and apparatus for bagging product units
Document Type and Number:
United States Patent 5111639
Link to this page:
http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5111639.html
Abstract:
A method and apparatus are disclosed for sealing pallets of fresh product inside plastic bags and finishing the interiors of the sealed bags with a modified gaseous atmosphere. Conventional pallets loaded with cooled fresh produce are moved by an input conveyor automatically one at a time to an in-line squeeze station. A plastic bag at a convenient height is initially draped over an arm radiating from a novel bagger frame. **A plurality of such arms extend from a rotatable hub so that bags can be moved into position above successive loaded pallets as they are needed.** This apparatus permits the bagging of nearly twice as many pallets in a given time period.

I should be clearer in my answer. I think that, depending on your context, bagging machine may be good enough to substitute for the original French phrase.

You're welcome:-) As I said, it was the odd use of "dos" that grabbed my attention. I've actually read quite a lot about machinery for nonwovens and bagging machines before so that helped me put the pieces together.
