The S4 small bag filling machine has one of the simplest and easiest set-ups of any automatic weigh filler.  It allows you to quickly change the different target fill weight sizes with the press of a couple buttons.

1. Dried mealworms are loaded into the hopper located at the top of the machine. The hopper shown in the pictures has a 3.5 cubic foot capacity, or about 5 five-gallon buckets.

2. Next, the operator places an empty bag, pouch, or box on the fill spout.

3. The first fill cycle is started by depressing the foot pedal. At this point, the machine and controller switches into “learn mode” for the first cycle. The controller tests the flow characteristics of the dried mealworms and decides the best speeds and duration for the vibration of the feeder.

4. The machine’s controller will start a bulk or fast flow of the dried mealworms from the hopper, through the vibrating feeder, and into the weigh hopper. Once the target set weight nears completion, the controller will automatically switch to a dribble or slow flow of the mealworms into the weigh hopper. Once the set target weight has been reached, the feeder stops, and the weigh hopper releases the mealworms into the bag, pouch, or box located below.

5. Each fill after the first cycle is now weigh filled automatically with the set weight of dried mealworms by placing it under the spout and depressing the foot pedal.

6. After filling, the operator can send the filled bag or pouch through a band heat sealer to lock in freshness, print date codes, trim bag tops, and more.
