Volm Companies, a packaging and equipment solutions company, was asked by its customers to help them overcome a challenge it faced in packaging a variety of size profiles of produce into various sizes of wicketed-style bags. So now, Volm Companies is excited to introduce the Volmpack Adjustable Dual Wicket Bagger.
The Volmpack Adjustable Dual Wicket Bagger is an automatic wicket bagger that efficiently processes the full range of typical fresh produce bag sizes on a single bagger. “Previously, wicket baggers were only available with either small, standard or extra-large fill openings which was an issue for packers who wanted to run wide range of both bag and produce sizes,” says Dan Husnick, equipment product manager for Volm. This bagger partners well with many Volmpack weighers and can pack at speeds up to 60 bags per minute.

Users can easily adjust this bagger when switching between different size product and bags without the need for change parts. The V-Feeding belts prevent bridging of product for a clean fill, while the closure post is provided for use with automatic closures, staplers and tape heads. “The adjustable fill opening technology makes it more convenient to make changes on the fly. The fact that you don’t have to stock extra parts to make those adjustments from one size bag to another is an added bonus,” says Marsha Pozza, director of marketing for Volm Companies, Inc.
This bagger is designed exclusively for wicketed style bags, which Volm offers in several different material types.
