Hamer Brand Model 1200 BH Open Mouth Bagging Machine

Our Hamer Model 1200 BH Bag Hanger provides consistent and reliable bag hanging for a wide variety of pre-made open-mouth paper, woven polypropylene  and polyethylene bags. The Model 1200 BH, when integrated with a bagging scale – automatically picks an empty bag from the stack, individually indexes each bag and then positions the bag on the filler spout. With a focus on electric servo and VFD actuation, the 1200 BH single bag indexing is a significant improvement over traditional bag hangers that pick a bag off a stack of bags.
