These industrial bag sewing machines and heat sealers are used to sew shut, close, and seal open mouth bags at rates up to 20 bags per minute or more.
Bag sewing can be accomplished using a portable bag sewing head or with stationary automatic bag sewing machine that is attached to a stand, such as a feed bag sewing machine. Portable bag sewing machines can close and stitch shut 4 to 8 bags per minute and automatic bag sewing machines have stitching and closing rates from 6 to 20 bags per minute. View examples of bag sewing machines from Union Special, Newlong, and Fischbein below.
Bag heat sealers close and seal paper or plastic bags and pouches at rates up to 20 bags per minute. Paper bag heat sealers pinch the bottom of the multi-walled paper bags with a pre-glued flap and heat them until the glue reaches a melting point. Plastic bag heat sealers seal poly-based bags using a hot air or rotary band heat sealer to close the bags. View examples of bag heat sealers from PlexPack, Packrite, OK Sealer International, and Fischbein below.

The case studies below feature bag packaging systems that use some type of bag sewing machine or bag heat sealer.
This fertilizer bagging system is used to fill poly bags with granular, free-flowing fertilizer. It includes a specially designed discharge stand and stainless steel hopper for Buckhorn CenterFlow seed boxes, a stainless steel digital gross weigh bagging scale with pneumatic bag clamp, a stainless steel mesh belt bag closing conveyor, and a hot air bag sealer.
The same type of system could be used to bag other types of free-flowing products like animal feed, plastic pellets, grains, seeds, wood pellets, and more. Multiple bag filling recipes are stored and easily swapped out via the digital scale controller.
The Grain and Corn Bagging System combines product storage, filling, and bag closing into one system. Efficiently fill and close 30-50 lb. paper and poly-woven open mouth style bags.
The system has been engineered for bagging deer corn (whole corn), feed, seed, and other grains. The manual, or mechanical, bagging option includes automatic weighing. The system is upgradeable to a higher packaging speed with the addition of a high-speed bag sewing system to quickly close the bags. Additional options are available including hand held bag sewing machines, bag flattening conveyors, and bag stacking systems.
The Newlong Bag Sewing Machine DS-9C high-speed industrial sewing head is a popular choice for businesses seeking to improve their bag closing operations. In this article, we will explore the key features of the Newlong DS-9C, how it works in conjunction with a power infeed system, and the benefits it brings to bag closing processes.

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.
A snack food producer needed to increase production on one of its bagging lines for breading mix. The existing equipment was centrally located within their process, which made any upgrades or integrations challenging. The customer’s project requirements included a bag sealing machine that uses an ultrasonic sealer to hermetically seal valve bags. This way, the bags would be dust tight before dropping onto a conveyor below.
Automated Packaging & Palletizing System for 20-100 Lb Bags (click for larger image)
This automated packaging and palletizing system is designed to fill 20-110 lb. open mouth poly bags at a rate of 10 bags per minute or more. Free-flowing and dry bulk material flows from the 80 cu. ft. hopper into a net weigh gravity flow bagging scale that includes a vibrating feeder with a gravity gate. The feeder doses a set amount of product into the internal weigh hopper of the bagging scale.

Why is it important to vacuum seal coffee bags and flush them with nitrogen?
Vacuum sealing and flushing a bag with a gas like nitrogen removes most of the oxygen, making it difficult for aerobic bacteria to grow. This extends the shelf life and freshness of whole coffee beans and ground coffee. Many large grocery stores, retail coffee shops, or online retailers like Amazon, require that coffee producers use VGF/MAP for their packaging for resale. (VGF stand for Vacuum Gas Flush and MAP stands for Modified Atmosphere Packaging.)
Product is supplied to the bag weighing / filling system from a product supply hopper / bin located above the bag filling machine. The product is pre-weighed in a 1.0 cubic foot weigh hopper prior to dispensing into the bag.
The NWB, or Net Weigh Bagger, is used for bagging BBQ wood smoker pellets at a rate of 20 tons per hour into open mouth bags. It is a great solution to accurately fill bags to a set target weight of 25 – 60 pounds.
This wood pellet bagging equipment is used to fill and seal 20-110 pound paper or plastic bags with hardwood pellets that are used for smoking and grilling BBQ.
