Aggregate Bagging Case Study: Pavestone® Automates Bagging Plants Nationwide
Pavestone, a market leader in providing manufactured segmental retaining walls, interlocking pavers and patio products to multiple industries, researched a variety of automated bagging machinery manufactures while planning their bag line automation projects.
Bagging a wide variety of hardscapes products nationwide, Pavestone Company specified their aggregates bagging system requirements and reviewed many potential suppliers.
Hardscape products such as crushed limestone, lava rock, river rock and a variety of sand products bring many challenges to bagging equipment.
The abrasive nature of these products requires equipment that will stand up to both product and plant demands, year after year. Pavestone systems feature Model 300VF volumetric fillers designed specifically for aggregates, Model 3100 extreme duty form, fill & seal.
“We have plants across the country and we needed a partner that not only engineered high quality, durable bagging systems, but also had the technical support we needed for operator training and parts support,” said Richard Tree, VP Western Operations, Pavestone Company. “Hands down the [nVenia] team was the front runner throughout our evaluation process. In the past several years we’ve purchased a number of [HAMER] systems and all of them have met our expectations for durability, throughput and reliability. The support has been top shelf.”
