Bagging and Packaging Line

Bagging Machine Description

Why would any business invest in a Bagging Machine? Because a Bagging Machine automates all or part of a weighing, filling and bagging process quickly, accurately, and reliably. You will be able to produce more bags per minute, saving you time and, more importantly, money.

Your personnel will also spend less time devoted to a bagging process and can be used more effectively elsewhere on site.

Bagging Machines pay for themselves in saved time and labour very early in their expected life span. And they are also versatile. QWM supplies a range of Bagging Machines that can be used to bag a number of different bag sizes and product types.

QWM is an authorised reseller of BudPak machines, including their Bagging Machine range. BudPak's Product Range Overview Brochure is a real must for any person not familiar with their range of products and capabilities.

Machine Considerations

When considering the purchase of a bagging machine, there are a number of important factors to take into account. Some systems can be purchased from overseas. While these systems may appear to fulfil your requirements, consider what will happen if the system requires repair in the future. Can the system be expanded as your business expands? Technical support and spare parts for your imported machine may be limited.

Some Australian companies manufacture their own bagging machines in Australia. However, many of these companies do not specialise in bagging machines, and their designs are often a hybrid of various equipment. For this reason, QWM chooses to supply Australian-made and trusted BudPak and AccuPak equipment.

Also, due to our partnership with Accuweigh, we are able to offer a number of bagging and packaging equipment from such internationally-acclaimed brands such as Technipes, IXIA, SpanPak, Elpack and more. We can supply a single machine or a complete turn-key solution for your site, backed by the technical support of Accuweigh with branches in all states.

Filling Methods

Bagging Machines vary greatly in design, based on the Customer's requirements and the product's characteristics. Bags (or packaging) may be filled by a number of methods. The most suitable method depends on the product's characteristics. Filling methods include:

  • Gravity Feed
  • Screw Feed
  • Force Flow
  • Conveyor Feed
  • Fluidising

If you are unsure which filling method is most suitable for your product, please feel free to contact one of our Sales Engineers, our bagging and packaging specialist. Or contact any one of the Accuweigh branches. Each branch has its own bagging and filling product champion.

All bag types are catered for including:

  • Valve Bags
  • Open Mouth Bags
  • Heat Seal Bags
  • Bulker-Bags
  • Containers
  • Drums ... and more
