auto bagging and palletizing system

Auto Bagging and Palletizing System (click for larger image)

This auto bagging and palletizing system is designed to fill 50 lb open mouth poly bags at a rate of 10 bags per minute.

Free-flowing and dry bulk material flows from the 80 cu ft hopper into a net weigh gravity flow bagger.  Poly bags are spouted on the bagger using an automatic bag placer.  After the bags reach a set target weight, they drop to the bag closing conveyor where they move through a bag top reformer that prepares the bags to be sewn shut.

Seasoning potato chips using an electrostatic seasoning system

Seasoning potato chips using an electrostatic seasoning system

Electrostatic seasoning systems can be retrofitted to existing food processing equipment and can result in 10-45% powder savings, while delivering excellent seasoning coverage.

With an average seasoning cost of $1-4 per pound (depending on formulation and supplier), return on investment in an electrostatic seasoning system can occur in 4 months or less.

nut bagging equipmentChoose from different types of nut bagging equipment that automatically weigh and fill pouches, sacks, and bags with different types of raw or roasted nuts.  These packaging machines are used for filling bags with many different types of snack nuts including peanuts, almonds, cashews, chestnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts.

Fill small pouches that weigh 0.5 – 5 lbs, large open mouth bags that weigh 10 – 50 lbs, or bulk bags that weigh up to 4,400 lbs.  All nut bagging equipment has an accuracy of +/- 0.5-1% of target weight and can operate at different bagging speeds. Bag sealers automatically vacuum seal pouches for retail sale in stores, as well as for online sales at stores like Amazon.  Nitrogen gas flush sealers are also available for sealing pouches or bags filled with nuts.  Larger, 5-50 lb open mouth bags for wholesale can be sealed on a conveyor using a heat sealer or bag sewing machine and then palletized using a robotic palletizer.

Financing options are available.

soybean bagging equipmentChoose from different types of soybean bagging equipment that automatically weighs and fills bags, bulk bags, and totes with different types of soybean seeds, soybean flour, and soybean meal.

Fill 16 oz – 110 pound bags with soybean flour and meal using an auger gross weigh bagger, and then seal them with a pinch bottom bag closer.  For filling bags with soybean seeds, we recommend using a digital gross weigh bagger or bulk bag filling station, and a bag sewer and pedestal. All soybean packaging machines have an accuracy of +/- 0.5-1% of target weight and can operate at different bagging speeds.

After closing the bags, convey them through a bag flattener and then onto a palletizer and stretch wrapper.  Using a robotic palletizer and automatic stretch wrapper for the fastest return on investment.

bulk bags vs IBCs - using stainless steel IBCs for seasonings

Stainless steel IBC loaded onto discharge station above bag packaging equipment

Trying to decide between bulk bags vs. IBC for your packaging plant? Stainless steel IBCs, or intermediate bulk containers, are easier to use, clean, and expand into existing operations at food and beverage processing plants.

The simplest version of a stainless steel IBC system would include a set of IBCs and a discharge station.  These would replace traditional bulk bag unloaders and bulk bags, or FIBCs.

sorghum bagging equipmentChoose from different types of sorghum bagging equipment that automatically weigh and fill 50-4,000 pound bags with sorghum.  Automatically fill many types of bags including poly-woven, multi-walled paper, burlap, and lined / unlined poly-woven bulk bags.  Free-flowing sorghum could include red, orange, bronze, tan, white, and black colored sorghum, and more.

model gwb-gv gravity vibrator open mouth baggerFor filling sorghum into 50 pound bags, we recommend using a vibratory fed net weigh bagging machine.  This type of machine automatically fills a supply hopper as a bag is being filled below with sorghum.  This results in a fill rate of up to 24 bags per minute.  For filling bulk bags with sorghum, we recommend a bulk bag filling station that can fill 5-25 bulk bags per hour.  All packaging machines have an accuracy of +/- 0.5-1% of target weight and can operate at different bagging speeds.

Supply hoppers for this type of sorghum bagging equipment are also available in a wide range of sizes, including frames that support Buckhorn Pro Boxes.
