RMGroup have completed many installations for customers wanting to bag decorative gravel. RMGroup design, manufacture and supply various packaging machinery to aggregate suppliers both in the UK and Ireland to customers supplying major UK building material suppliers such as Travis Perkins and B&Q. Also in the range are systems specifically designed for local builder’s merchants looking to bag product as and when required.
Form, fill and seal machines are capable of bagging up to 17 bags of decorative gravel per minute (product dependant). Operators are simply required to oversee the packing line, load product, load empty pallets and remove filled pallets off the line. This system proves popular with decorative gravel customers looking for high speeds and consistency in production runs. If your requirement is to pack a wide variety of products with varying bag sizes and regular product changeovers a semi-automated system is an effective solution. Although this system requires an operator to place a bag on the filling spout it includes ABB robot palletising as a means of automation. Depending on your operator and product these systems can reach speeds of up to 10 bags per minute.
The Manual bagging range is an option if the need is a robust decorative gravel bagging machine which is operator friendly and capable of high throughputs. The MB-300 is a simple bagging system, compatible with many applications and is capable of 300 bags an hour. The MB400 manual bagging machine has a conveyor belt in-feed capable of bagging up to 400 bags an hour. The MB500 Manual bagging machine is capable of 500 bags per hour and has electronic weighing system for accurate filling.
Bulk Bagging Machinery is the solution to bulk automation. The brand new Bulk Bag Filling System the BB-400 is the fastest Bulk Bagger from RMGroup. The bulk bagging machine is capable of filling 3 bulk bags per minute and able to refill to weighment in just 17 seconds. A large 20 tonne heavy duty hopper feeds onto a large in-feed belt conveyor which then feeds the BB-400. The sack filling machine itself is controlled by an integrated weighing system that fills the hopper to a pre-set weighment, making bulk automation very precise at high-speed and volume.

New to the bag filling range is the BP800 Bag placer. Contact a member of the team to discuss how the automated bag placer can be integrated into your decorative gravel bagging system increasing bag filling speeds of open mouth bags. The BP800 can accommodate bags of various sizes, materials and closure device. Bag placers are used to place pre made bags onto a filling head. The bag placers we design and manufacture are built to handle different materials from a free flowing sugar to aggressive coals. The bag placer offers an alternative solution to Form fill and seal if customers require automatic packing.

Their requirements were to package a variety of aggregates from 20kg-40kg bags, from decorative aggregates to various sand based materials for builders merchants. The brief was to decommission the existing system which was a manual bagging line and fully commission a high-speed automatic aggregate bagging system with a stretch hooder, within a 10 day time frame to illuminate downtime.
