Many materials are used as mulches, which are used to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, suppress weed growth, and for aesthetics. For customers looking to pack mulch manually with pre-made bags, we re-designed our in-feed system on our standard hoppers to promote product flow and minimise bridging. The manual system comprises of a hopper with belt feeding out onto an in-feeding conveyor into a loadcell bag clamp. The bag is manually placed on the clamp, filled to desired weightment (30, 40, 50L). Once filled the bag is released from the clamp and drops onto a conveyor which transfers the bag through a heat sealer and through to the bag flattener.
Customers looking for high speed automated systems to pack mulch, we recommend form fill and seal. This system has the capacity to bag up to 1,000 bags an hour of mulch. We use a doser weighing system to fill bags volumetrically. Please refer to our form, fill and seal product pages to see the vertical FFS systems in operation. Installed with an ABB robot palletising system for a fully automated compost packaging system.
Mulch can be packed in various materials and size bags, whatever the size or material RMGroup are able to provide the right system to our customers needs. RMGroup have supplied a range of bag filling and weighing systems to the garden and horticultural industry, builders merchants and country stores specialising in Mulch, bark, compost, and soil. Bulk Bagging Systems can also be included with a Manual Bagging System, allowing the same in feed to supply both Bulk and Manual bags.
For weighing, feeding and bagging mulch RMGroup recommends a either automatic open-mouth bagging systems, manual open-mouth bagging systems or form-fill and seal systems. An automatic bagging line for mulch can be completed with the installation of a robot palletiser and either stretch hooding or stretch wrapping systems
