This automated bagging machine uses a high-speed net weigher and bag placer to package free-flowing products into stand up pouches or doypacks.
Automatic Bagging Machines
Automatic bagging machines and equipment greatly increase efficiency, bag filling capabilities, and palletizing rates. Almost any type of auto bagger machine and system can be designed for one or more operators using an existing packaging line or plant footprint. We have over 40 years' experience with automatic bagging machine and systems and can custom design a solution to meet your budget and processing requirements.

The first level of automation would be to add a bag tip and drop component to a valve bag filler machine. Then, make the system more automatic by adding a bag placer that automatically places an empty bag on the bag fill spout. Next, add a machine that includes a single or dual filling hopper that simultaneously fills while a bag or bags are being filled. The final level of automation would be to add a robot bag palletizer at the end of the line.

The video below shows a bag palletizing robot stacking 50 lb. paper valve bags onto a pallet located on the floor per the programmed bag placement design. This robot was added to an existing bag filling system to reduce labor costs and increase automation.
Watch a Video:
The automatic bag placer machine picks up, hangs, and clamps an empty open mouth bag onto a bagger before product is discharged into a bag. Up to 20 bags per minute are possible and it works with both new / existing net weigh and gross weigh bagging scales. With this type of automation, one full-time operator can be removed from the bagging system.
This machine automatically reforms or prepares the top of flat, pillow type open mouth bags and guides them into the infeed of a high-speed bag closer or sewing machine.
This type of automation can eliminate the need for an operator to manually guide a filled bag into a bag closing system. It can handle production rates up to 15 bags per minute and typically comes with an automatic bag placer.
When speed and bagging rate is important, automating the dispensing of pallets and slip sheets helps to reduce labor requirements for feeding shipping pallets into an automated palletizing system with a robot.
This commercial equipment is used for repackaging bulk dry goods stored in bulk bags, bins, totes, pro boxes, 40-50Lb bags, and more into small bags, pouches, and containers.
Examples of free-flowing bulk dry goods to repackage or re-bag would be food products such as rice, nuts, coffee beans, sprinkles, pasta, beans, candy, seeds, dog food, and cat food as well as products such as feed pellets, wood pellets, and plastic pellets.
A contract packaging company recently upgraded their existing manual bag stacking system to an automated palletizing system. The new system includes bag handling and robotic pick conveyors, a Fanuc robotic arm with a bag gripper tool, and an automated pallet and slip sheet dispenser.
With the added palletizing automation, the system is now able to fill and stack 100 lb. bags at a rate of 10-12 bags/minute. The company can also quickly swap out settings to fill and stack 50 lb. bags at a rate of 15-16 bags/minute.
Use an automated bagging system to fill boxes and baler bags with small pre-packaged, form fill and seal (FFS) bags or pouches containing products such as grains, sugar, flour, salt, powders, and more. This type of automation can enhance your end of line packaging and provide a more convenient way to ship and handle smaller bags together as a stackable unit.

Automatic bagging systems are typically used to fill and seal bags and pouches containing 1-110 lbs. of product. The systems can be categorized by the types of bags or pouches being filled.
The video below shows an automated feed bagging system that quickly fills and packages multi-wall paper bags with 50lbs. of alfalfa pellets (pasture cubes or range cubes) to be used for livestock feed. This system uses a high-speed net weigh bagger with 2 internal weigh hoppers.
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 that includes a vibrating feeder with gravity gate. The feeder doses a set amount of product into the internal weigh hopper.

The automatic bag placer machine picks up and spouts an empty open mouth bag onto a high-speed bagger before 50 lbs. of feed or grain is discharged into the bag. The bag placer is designed to work with most kraft paper bags and some plastic bags.
There are many different types of bagging machines using custom configurations to package many types of products. These products can range from agricultural products like corn, feed, and seed to chemical and industrial powders like graphite, gypsum, and barite.
Since 1978, we have seen it all!
The types of bagging machines are:
- Small bag filling machines
- Form fill and seal (FFS) bagging machines
- Valve bag filling machines
- Open mouth bag filling machines
- Bulk bag filling machines
This automatic plastic pellets bagging system fills 50 lb. poly bags at a continuous rate of 12-14 bags per minute with pellets that are used in various extrusion processes.
Both the bag placer and bag top reformer can operate in automatic or manual modes, allowing the system to continue to operate, even during maintenance or repairs of this equipment. Other automated systems do not allow for this type of feature and the entire packaging line must be shut down.
This type of packaging system can be used to pack plastic granules, or more slightly irregularly shaped free-flowing particles that are used in processing recycled plastics.
