Hamer Brand Model 3100 Form Fill & Seal (FFS) Bagging Machine

Our Hamer Model 3100 Form, Fill & Seal is designed for extreme duty automated bagging. It is built specifically for the most difficult products in demanding environments. Ideal for mining, minerals, corrosives and aggregates packaging, the Model 3100 offers longevity and high speed. It can be utilized as a stand-alone packaging machine or integrated into a fully automated packaging line.

Our Hamer Model 3100 features a sturdy 6″ structural steel frame, 1/2″ structural steel zinc dichromate plated subassemblies, plated steel pulleys with sealed bearings, and B series belts. All operational components are top-mounted for simplicity and all adjustment controls are scaled for simple, trouble-free bag size changes. A pneumatically actuated bag perforator provides up to twelve vertical holes along the edge of the bag to facilitate air removal for effective bag palletizing. The perforators are mounted to the hot knife assembly, improving performance and reducing wear, and Teflon knife backing keeps bag seams clean.
