nVenia’s HAMER Brand Automates Asphalt Bagging Operations
Looking to improve productivity and reduce labor, a new nVenia customer approached us with a desire to automate their asphalt packaging plant.
Our HAMER Brand supplied a Model 2090 form, fill & seal bagging machine and a Model 600NW belt feed net weigh scale for product dosing.
The Model 600NW belt feed scale has a unique, easy-to-clean design where the entire belt assembly slides out of its support frame to allow for complete operator access. Asphalt is packaged at approximately 200 degrees F and requires a special endless feed belt on the scale.
Now, the customer has been running the system for more than 6 months and produced in excess of 500,000 bags on the system. System performance has been very consistent, with bagging rates in the 22-24 BPM range on 50 lb bags.
