Plymouth, MN – March 13, 2017

Continuing our focus of providing simple, efficient, robust bagging technology, the Hamer-Fischbein Model 1800 RBH (Robotic Bag Hanger) improves open mouth bagging automation and reduces labor with its integrated Yaskawa MH12- 6 axis robotic arm.  The robot allows seamless transfer of filled bags into the bag top sealing technology.   This next generation machine supports a wide variety of bag top closing technology including hot air seal, band seal, sew, sew through tape, and pinch.   The Model 1800 RBH is the ideal equipment solution for customers desiring a high level of automation and productivity while bagging animal feed and supplements, agricultural seed, grain, or other minerals or chemicals.  “Our customers were requesting this technology and level of automation in their plants”, says Paul Olson, National Accounts Manager at Hamer-Fischbein.   We are excited to now be able to deliver the Model 1800RBH, a machine expertly designed to provide consistent and reliable bag positioning, opening, hanging and transferring.

The Model 1800 RBH supports a wide range of bag types including Poly, Poly woven Laminate, Paper, Paper/Poly Lined, Pillow Side Gusset, or PBOM (Pinch Bag Open Mouth).  Benefits also include fast bag size changes, the ability to handle up to 250 bags in the bag magazine and consistent speeds of up to 18 bags per minute.  The motors and servos in the machine design reduce air consumption requirements reducing long term operating costs and machine maintenance.
