Hamer Brand Model 490S High Speed Form Fill and Seal (FFS) for Free Flowing Products

The Hamer Model 490S Form, Fill and Seal machine for free flowing products represents the next generation in automatic packaging machinery. The Model 490S improves machine reliability, bag top seal integrity, speed, and cleanliness standards. It reduces operator training and machine maintenance, meeting our goal of true standalone bagging automation. 

Using proven side weld technology, the machine forms a bag from LLDP film, opens the bag for filling, then seals and trims the bag top in one smooth action.  The new servo driven top sealer delivers consistently strong, repeatable seals – bag after bag after bag – all while operating in the challenging environments required to perform in ice packaging facilities.  This Impulse sealer heats and cools in microseconds, forming a secure bag top seal without residual heat.  

The Model 490S features a pneumatic capture 20″ vertical film roll holder to ensure proper film height is maintained. The new pulley design, heavy duty side seal, and durable frame construction reduces wear and lowers annual machine maintenance costs.
