Ice Bagging Machine

Model 540 Ice Bagging Machine

As we head into the hot, summer months and potential storm season, packaged ice producers need their ice bagging machine to be prepared to meet the high demand for bagged ice at times when it is most in demand.   With over thirty five years of experience in the packaged ice industry, Hamer-Fischbein’s Form, Fill and Seal ice bagging machine is engineered to meet this challenge as well as enable you to gain a significant return to your bottom line.

The Model 540 Form Fill Seal ice bagging machine is a small footprint design that provides easy automation.   Its numerous benefits have a direct impact on business profitability.   These include:

  • High speeds to increase overall daily packaging production
  • 20% reduced usage in film due to machine technology
  • Reduced labor due to automation

High Speed

This machine is fast – our customers are achieving production speeds of 40+ bags per minute for up to a 40 lb. bag. We have also included variable speed controls on the volumetric filler to speed bag changes and the same control on the hot air sealer to make matching conveyor speeds fast and easy.   Made of heavy-duty corrosion-resistant, stainless steel, this packaging machine is built for ease of cleaning and long-lasting, trouble free service.

Reduced film usage

Heat-sealed bags have an advantage as they reduce bag cost, increase graphics display space and provide a safe “tamperproof” package.   Our Model 220 Hot Air Sealer incorporated in line on the Model 540 provides high performance and durability at a low cost.


This ice bagging machine can be customized with options like a date coder, gussets, in bag handles or zipper; the Model 540 remains easy to run and keeps running fast, no matter which options are configured.

Small Investment, Big Returns

For an initial investment amount under $100,000, ice producers can effectively automate their packaged ice business.   An investment in the Model 540 ice bagging machine will continue to pay off due to the machine’s high performance, reliability. All backed by Hamer-Fischbein’s technical expertise and superior customer service.
