Automated mobile bagging system bags up to 18 per minute
03 December 2023
RMGROUP HAS launched the CTM800, a mobile bagging system, which integrates within three standard 40ft shipping containers. It has a two-floor structure, with the infeed dosing/weighing system on the second floor above the primary automated machinery.
The form fill and seal machine is on the ground floor, with a robotic palletiser. Additionally, a wrapping cell located on the ground floor completes the packaging process, making the CTM800 a turnkey solution. The system achieves speeds of up to 18 bags per minute, depending on the product being bagged.
RMGroup’s managing director Edward Rees, says: ”2007 was the year that RMGroup made the first portable bagging and robotic palletising system - the first company in the world to pioneer this concept. As with many of the products within the mobile bagging range of machinery, they have evolved based on customer demand to bag product at source.
“Building on the containerised product range makes sense for our overseas customers. Today’s model includes a wrapping container which also applies a top sheet to protect palletised product. We’ve gone one step further in fixtures and fittings to provide a fully functioning ‘factory in a box’ environment to enhance the ease of maintenance, keep personnel safe, and create an ambient operating temperature to increase the life expectancy of equipment. Those looking for a system of this kind needn’t worry about planning permission. It can be picked up and relocated within hours.”
The containers utilised in this system are not only optimised for performance but also designed with eco-friendly principles, further reinforcing RMGroup's commitment to sustainable innovations. This commitment has not gone unnoticed, as RMGroup has been recognised with previous awards for its containerised, mobile bag filling and palletising solutions and their direct impact on reducing carbon footprints for its customers.
The CTM800 is one of three mobile units being developed for the aggregates, wood pellets and agricultural sectors.
