Choose from different types of bagging equipment for beans that automatically weigh and fill small poly bags, as well as 50 pound to 4,000 pound bags with beans. Automatically fill many types of bags including small poly bags / pouches, poly-woven, multi-walled paper, burlap, and lined / unlined poly-woven bulk bags. Free-flowing beans could include Navy Beans, Great Northern Beans, White Beans, Cannellini Beans, Kidney Beans, and Pinto Beans.
For filling beans into smaller pouches and gusseted bags, we recommend the semi-automatic Model S4. It automatically weighs and fills pouches and small bags at speeds around 600-800 fills per hour. For vacuum sealing and nitrogen flushing the bags, we recommend the entry-level Plexpack Vacpack Vacuum Sealer. For faster filling and sealing speeds, we can also recommend a number of fully automatic packaging systems that are small enough to fit at a retail store location or warehouse location. All options work with free-flowing dry beans.
For filling beans into 5 – 50 pound bags, we recommend using a net weigh bagging machine. This type of machine automatically fills a supply hopper as a bag is being filled below with beans. This results in a fill rate of up to 24 bags per minute. For an entry-level filling machine, we recommend a digital gravity filler that has a fill rate of 1-8 bags per minute. All packaging machines have an accuracy of +/- 0.5-1% of target weight and can operate at different bagging speeds. Supply hoppers are also available in a wide range of sizes, including frames that support Buckhorn Pro Boxes.
Once bags have been filled, they are conveyed through a bag sealer machine. From there, they are sent through a bag flattener and onto a palletizing conveyor, where an operator or a robotic palletizer places the bags on a shipping pallet for stretch wrapping.
For filling bulk bags with beans, we recommend a bulk bag filling station that can fill 5-25 bulk bags per hour.
Financing options are available.
Entry-Level Bagging Equipment for Small Bags: 600-800 fills per hour
The semi-automatic Model S4 automatically weighs and fills pouches and small bags. For vacuum sealing and nitrogen flushing the bags, we recommend the entry-level Emplex Plexpack Vacpack Vacuum Sealer. Fully automated systems are also available.
Entry-Level Bagging Equipment for Large Bags of Beans: 1-8 bags per minute
Beans flow by gravity from a supply hopper into the automatic digital scale gross weighing filler. When a fill cycle is started, the beans flow through the gravity gate and a funnel spout and into the bag.
Fill up to 24 Large Bags with Beans using a Net Weigher
Beans flow by gravity from a supply hopper into the automatic net weigh bagger. This type of machine pre-weighs the beans before discharging them into the bag below. When a fill cycle is started, beans are discharged from the weigh hopper, through a funnel spout, and into the bag.

Fill up to 25 Bulk Bags Per Minute with Beans using a Bulk Bag Filling Station
This filling station includes a heavy-duty bulk bag filling machine for semi-automatic filling and weighing of bulk bags containing beans. The entire filling process can be managed by one operator and can also include an automatic pallet dispenser to eliminate manual pallet handling. An entry-level bulk bag filler is also available with or without electricity or compressed air requirements.

Automatically Palletize up to 24 Bags per Minute using a Robotic Palletizer
After sewing, the packaged beans are conveyed through a bag flattener to a palletizing station, where a robotic palletizer or operator uniformly stacks the bags of beans onto a pallet for shipping or storage.
