Giro Pack unveils new Box Filler and Dynamic Weigher

Giro Pack have announced new a box filling machine and high-speed dynamic weigher which the company hopes will further streamline and automate packinghouse bagging operations. 


From left to right, EXACT-100 and the GBF-100

The company claims the Exact-100 offers more bags per minute, increased accuracy, and the ability to feed 3 baggers simultaneously with the same footprint as most layouts with only 2 baggers.  

The GBF-100 automates the last step in the packaging line (the filling of boxes with net bags); which helps improve efficiency and saves in labor costs. 

EXACT-100 Features:

  • Output: Up to 90 bags/min (depending on bag size and commodity)
  • Versatility: Ability to run 3 baggers simultaneously
  • Accuracy: 5 grams per dump more accurate than Giro’s previous weigher; Saving up to $0.07 per 5# bag
  • Labor Savings: Overall labor reduction up to 30%
  • Footprint: Up to 50% more output with a smaller footprint than Giro’s previous line
GBF-100 Features:
  • Output: Up to 90 boxes/min (depending on bag size and commodity)
  • Labor Savings: Up to 2-4 people; Overall labor reduction up to 30%
  • Box Composition: Plastic and/or carton
  • Box Sizes: 600x400
  • Featured Benefits: Vibrating/compacting device to ensure the proper positioning of the bags inside the box
  • Optional Feature:  Rejection system for over/underweight boxes
