Open Mouth Bag Filling Machines

Open mouth bag fillers allow a manufacturer to weigh, fill and seal different types of bagging materials and sizes. These types of bag fillers are ideal for hard-to-handle, dry, free-flowing, and minimally dusty materials. Open mouth bags are used for everything from seeds, to animal feed pellets and coarse gravel, while bagging machines are suited for manual, semi-automatic, and automatic production applications.  By combining an open-mouth bag filler with other machinery, you build your own, independent production line.

The Basics of an Open Mouth Bagging Machine

Open mouth bagging machine systems can quickly fill bags with both food grade and non-food grade materials and are well suited for both manual and automated applications. Open mouth bagging machine systems are ideal for hard-to-handle dry, free-flowing and minimally dusty products or materials like landscaping materials, feed, seed, fertilizer, and food products.

There are two classes of open-mouth bag fillers: gross weigh (fill and weigh simultaneously) and net weigh (pre-weigh and fill as a secondary step).  Each class of filler can be fed by one of the following types of feed systems: gravity, vibratory pan fed, belt-fed, and auger-fed.

Typical Applications for Open Mouth Bag Fillers:

Building Materials

Fertilizer, Plastic Pellets

Food Products

Sugar, Salt, Cake Mixes

Agricultural

Animal Feed, Corn, Soybeans

Landscaping Products

Soil, Compost, Sand, Gravel

Open Mouth Bag Fillers come in four basic types: Gravity, Auger fed, Vibratory, and Belt Fed

Choice Bagging Equipment’s automatic bagging machines are capable of filling 20-110 lb. bags with non-dusty powders, flaked and granular products, at rates of up to 24 bags per minute This equates
to about 1,440 bags per hour.

Advanced Systems with Open Mouth Bagging Machine

 

For high volume production requirements, open mouth bagging machine systems are configured with multiple bagging stations, matched with robotic bag placers, and automated bag palletizing robots. Systems like this can bag and stack up to 600 bags per hour, per line. Further automation can be applied to the line with bag flattening conveyors, robotic bag turners and pallet wrappers.

Bagging machine systems like this make it possible for a single operator to manage several lines, and output thousands of bags per hour.

What is an Open Mouth Bag?

 

Open mouth bags are manufactured in a variety of styles and constructions, including pinch bottom (paper) bags, sewn open mouth (both paper and plastic) and heat sealed (film) bags, based on specific manufacturer needs. Depending on the construction of the bag, open mouth bags are usually closed by sewing, heat sealing or gluing.

Sewn open mouth bags are the preferred choice for agricultural, feed and seed applications. They are economical, tough, and easily opened with a pull tab chord at the top.  Open mouth bags can be manufactured with PE-free film or PE-liners, where enhanced moisture protection is needed.

This style bag is frequently used to package flour, agricultural, animal feed and seed, nuts, landscaping materials, chemicals and food products.
