New Fully Automatic Soil Bagging Line Runs at 30 Bags Per Minute


A recently installed turn-key automated bagging system for soil products has met the exacting requirements of Markman Peat, an Iowa-based national provider of high-quality bagged peat and soil products.

Project engineers from nVenia’s HAMER Brand designed a new line to help Markman meet growing production requirements and assist them in reducing bagging line labor.

The new line includes the company’s all new Model 50 bulk hopper feeding into our proven Model 300VF and Model 2090 FFS, form, fill & seal automated bagging equipment.

Bags are accurately filled and produced at 30 bags per minute, then fed to a fully automated palletizer, with load securing provided by a Wulftec overhead arm wrapping system.

Now all day, every day, this line produces a wide variety of premium soil bags, requiring just a single operator to run the line.
