Fertilizer Company Improves Bottom Line with Bagging Automation

Growmark fertilizer recently completed installation of a fully automatic bagging, palletizing and wrapping system.   Initially looking at bag placing technology, Growmark discovered that using form, fill seal automated bagging with Hamer’s exclusive 6 x 8 Thermal transfer printer option allowed them to significantly reduce bag cost, reduce bag sku’s from over 50 to 3 and print complete formulations of their products right on each bag as it processes through the system.   Their complete system includes Hamer’s high accuracy 600NW stainless steel net weigh scale, a Model 2090 Form, Fill and Seal bagging machine, Fanuc 410iB robotic palletizer and Wulftec stretch wrapper.
