11 February, 2010

Bud-Pak / Accuweigh installed a retail packaging line at the Harwood Sugar plant in Manilda, northern NSW. This packaging line produces 300 x shrink wrapped bundles of retail sugar packs/hour, in line with the clients production needs.

This turnkey retail bag filling system was commissioned in 2003 and comprised:

  • two bulk bag lifting frames
  • product surge hopper with bag opening spike
  • mobile feed hopper
  • grate magnet assembly
  • bucket elevator to feed the net weigher
  • PLA-G4 (4-unit) net weigh scale
  • scale support frame

Bud-Pak / Accuweigh specialises in retail packaging systems and is able to custom design the complete packaging line to suit the client's needs exactly.
