Accuweigh recently commissioned a Budpak GB50 manual bagging machine for a Western Australian based supplier of fertilizers. The manual bagging machine is used to bag 15-20kg bags of natural fertilizer into 2mm plastic bags at the rate of 5 bags per minute.
The Budpak GB50 bagging machine requires an operator to manually clamp an empty bag onto the filling mouth before the bag is automatically filled to the predetermined weight. The bags are then dropped from the manual bagging machine onto a closing conveyor for transportation to a bag heat sealer for closing.
Budpak’s manual bagging machine utilises a two speed vibratory feeder with the adjustable trickle feed used for the last few seconds of filling to achieve accurate bag weights in a minimal amount of time.
Two heavy capacity load cells are connected to a Rinstrum R5100 batching controller with internal memory for storing up to 99 different bag weights with all relevant setting and is able to generate reports on bags throughput and total bagged weight.
