RMGroup have several options for bagging, packing and palletising plant feed. Whether the fertiliser is granular or liquid, organic or synthetic we are able to design and build a packing line for jugs, cartons, bottles, boxes of any material. As ingredient costs rise for animal feed, minimizing product waste is critical to profitability. Accurate Net Weigh Scales provide the most precise dose and the highest bag per minute rate available product depending.
RMGroup have supplied a range of process packaging machinery for plant feed customers, including bag filling using Form Fill and Seal machinery and weighing systems to the Garden and Horticultural Industry, specialising in plant food and fertilizer, compost, mulch, peat moss and soil.
We have designed bespoke machines to suit the requirements of our customers. For products with poor flow characteristics (such as peat, compost and soil) RMGroup Design Engineers have developed an in-feed system to promote the flow and minimises bridging in the hopper. Bulk Bagging Systems can also be included with a Manual Bagging System, allowing the same in feed to supply both Bulk and Manual bags. Systems can be completed with Robot Palletising.
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 plant feed 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.
Case Study – Scotts
Following on from a successful installation, SCOTTS Company (UK) gave RMGroup the task of further automating their bottling line for products in the Patch Magic range. RMGroup were asked to take jugs that had been filled and capped from existing plant and place into cardboard boxes of varying sizes. Read more here.
