Form, Fill, Seal Machine Packaging Garden Soils in WA

A Form, Fill, Seal Machine was recently commissioned as part of a fully automatic bagging, palletising and stretch wrapping line for a rapidly expanding garden soils provider in Western Australia. Supplied by Accuweigh’s Perth branch, the Form, Fill, Seal Machine is being used to bag garden soils, potting mixes, manures, soil improvers, fertilisers and mulches.

The Form, Fill, Seal Machine was custom built in Italy to client specifications to ensure complete machine and product compatibility for optimum bag filling performance. An outstanding feature of the supplied ESSE GI FL-1200 Vertical Form Fill Seal machine is that it is fitted with a combination filling head to allow bags to be either filled by volume (dosing) or by weight depending on product requirements.

The benefits of Accuweigh’s Form, Fill, Seal Machine for this client includes:

  • Increased product throughput using reduced staffing levels
  • Higher accuracy bag weights with less product give-away
  • Increased cost savings using flat wrap rather than custom pre-made bags
  • Significantly smaller footprint than previous bagging line
  • High quality presentation of packaged product improves visual appearance

Plant efficiency has increased dramatically with the commissioning of Accuweigh’s turnkey bagging, palletising and stretch strapping line with the entire process now fully-automatic in operation and able to be overseen by a single person. The Form, Fill, Seal Machine receives product via an elevating conveyor from an externally mounted loading hopper of ten cubic metres in volume with product contact surfaces in stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance.

Another of the standout features of the ESSE GI Form, Fill, Seal Packaging Machine is the hydraulic film reel lifting device that eliminates many OH&S issues experienced with opposition products. At the press of a button, the empty film reel is lowered to ground level for easy removal and then automatically lifts and locks the new heavy film reel into position without requiring any manual effort by operators or the use of external lifting devices such as forklifts.

Accuweigh’s Form, Fill, Seal Machine for this bag filling application is designed to run at up to 750 bags per hour in a range of sizes from twenty-two litres up to seventy litre bags. Accuweigh is the exclusive Australian agent for the ESSE GI range of VFFS machines and has eight branches across mainland states providing Superior Product Support on all weighing and packaging applications.
