Potato and onion packing machines

Packing is the best part of the field to fork process to start agricultural mechanisation.

Why is this?

Packing well adds significant value.

The world of packaging is a big one, with countless possibilities for weighing, packing and labelling products.

You must always bear in mind:

The higher the capacity of the packing line, the more investment is required.

However, there is another factor which greatly influences the investment:
The smaller the bags, the higher the investment. A packing line with smaller bags but a significant capacity requires even higher investment.

Here are the two extremes (in terms of capacity) for large sacks, holding 25 to 50 kg.

A semi automatic SKALS weighing and bagging machine

Partially automated, low capacity packing machine (for large sacks, 25 kg).

Baxmatic.

Fully automated, high capacity packing machine (for large sacks, 25 kg).

To the left is a simple SKALS weighing and packing machine with a capacity of 5 to 7 tonnes per hour, or 200 to 300 25 kg sacks per hour, with capacity depending on the speed of the operator.

To the right is an Eqraft baxmatic, which can pack 25 tonnes per hour, or 1,000 25 kg sacks per hour. This machine is fully automated, and doesn't require an operator.

The two extremes (in terms of capacity) for small bags, holding 0.5 to 5 kg

Clippers bagging 0.5 to 2 kg bags with red onions.

Partially automated, low capacity packing machine (for small bags, 0.5 to 2 kg).

Totally automated, low capacity packing machine (for small bags, 0.5 to 2 kg)

Totally automated, low capacity packing machine (for small bags, 0.5 to 2 kg).

To the left is a simple ''clipper'', which semi-automatically packs a certain amount (for example 5 to 6 onions) in small mesh bags. It doesn't have a weigher, so the onions must be graded beforehand in order to know more or less how much each bag weighs.

To the right is a high capacity facility for weighing and packing small plastic bags with a weight of 1.5 kg. This machine is fully automated, and only requires people to collect the small bags and load them into cardboard boxes.

Next up: Finding the right equipment for packing your onions and potatoes.

Your client isn't interested in how the onions or potatoes were harvested, they just want the produce weighed and packed in an acceptable and convenient way.

In addition, a mechanised harvest generates a flow of produce from the field at a pace of 30 to 40 tonnes an hour, and if you don't have the facilities to handle or pack it, what can you do with this flow? ... Nothing at all!
