Why fill bags by hand? Let the machine do the hard work.
Why use Bagging Machinery?
Saves you time, earns you more dollars per ton of material by bagging. Produce more bags per minute to increase your production.
Increases your work efficiency and saves labor (cost) by filling bags quickly, accurately, and reliably. Personnel will spend considerably less time and won't mind filling bags. Staff can than be better utilised effectively elsewhere on site.
Minimizes operator fatigue, reduce risk of getting injuries.
Workers risk injury when undertaking manual repetitive tasks such as back injuries and knuckle injuries.
Filling bags without utilizing bagging machines, back injuries might occur when someone is bending while holding the bag and Knuckles injuries might occur when one person is holding the bag while another one shovels the material in.
Caters for a variety of materials include potting mix, garden mix, grain, manure, sand, soil, gravel, stone, woodchip, scoria, stock feed, mulch, compost, stone, rock, pebble, sawdust, metal dust and many more

Nurseries and landscape suppliers usually have to add fertiliser with potting media, C-Mac has now developed a bolt on dibbling unit for our Ezi Bagger to meet customers’ requestes.
Past practice has been to toss a handfill or scoup of feriliser on top of the mix after the pot has been filled. When filling buckets or doing any bagging, the manual process of adding fertiliser can now be replaced by the ezibagger filling machine.
The Ezibagger dibbling accessory allows nurseries to mix an accurate measure of fertiliser into media as it is being deposited into a bucket, pot or bag, giving it a even spread throughout the mix.
How it works (see video below):
This accessory must be purchased with your machine to have a interface with the electronic control box. Amount of fertisler dispensed is set by timer and speed on the control box
Fill the big hopper with potting media
Fill the small hopper (dibbling unit) with fertiliser
Place the bucket or bag underneath the tube
Press the footer pedal
The small auger feeder(motor) under the small hopper then feeds the fertiliser down the tube to mix with the potting media as it drops into the container
Pot, bucket or bag is filled
Use conveyor to deliver the filled container to one side
Restart the process (4) every 6 12 seconds depending on container size.
Dibbling unit capacity: 30 – 40 litters
Other specification: Same with Ezi bagger
Auger Feeder Unit for Ezibagger
When you have a powdery product and vibration isn’t the ideal solution, C-Mac can now provide a screw conveyor that simply bolts on under the large receiving hopper.
The screw feeder is integrated with the PLC control box and can be set to run manually or on a set time or weight of product in container.
Stainless steel body and screw
Screw diameter 104mm
Supported by auger unit attached to Ezi bagger hopper( be held to the hopper bottom via flange)
Power requirements: 240 volts, single phase, 10 amp rating.
Trailer Rating: The dual axle trailer is rated for moving with full load. It is however recommended the unit to be emptied before relocation. Tare weight: approx. 1 tonne. Aggregate weight: 2 tonne. Can be towed behind most utes and four wheel drive vehicles.
Trailer size: Length – 4.0 m Width – 2.1 m

*[Owner]* An industrial laundry system service company needed repairs and redesign done to their tooling. C-Mac made changes to the tooling to make access and ease of use to decrease service down times.
*[Service Manager]* An industrial fan service company had a failure of a major shopping centre air conditioning fan/ blower. C-Mac repaired the unit within a 24hr turn around for minimum downtime.
*[Owner/Manager]* A major food manufacturer specializing in tomato sauce had a filling machine breakdown. The machine was brought to C-Mac and repaired in 24hrs for minimum downtime of the production line costing $5,000 per hour.
*[RAAF - Warrant Officer]* Airfield support staff required a portable sandbagging frame and requested a design, prototype and trials at no cost. There was nothing suitable on the market i.e. made in Australia. "Sandbagging Frames":materials-handling/1-bagging-equipment#silt-bagging-frame are now on the national procurement data base and some probably overseas at different war zones.
*[Mechanical Design Engineer]* An automotive transmission design customer needed help with designing an automatic transmission gear prototype. We suggested and engineered a more cost effective and practical way for the mass production stage.
*[Nursery Manager]* At an exhibition saw our self tracking nursery trailers and indicated he had a costly issue transporting large (heavy) pots containing advanced trees. Existing method was a bobcat. C-Mac designed and quoted for the manufacture of a Self Tracking “Low Loader”. His comment on the first day of using "Low Loader trailer":nursery-equipment/7-trailers/#low-loader-self-tracking-trailer “Can now move 100 litre pots with trees, 150 metres in 1 hr and not get a sore back”.
*[Purchasing Officer]* A mining design and machining company needed help with machining components urgently as they were too busy to keep up with the demand. C-Mac machined the components so the deadline could be met.
*[General Manager]* Customer had to submit a proposal and compete against other countries for the manufacturing facility. C-Mac submitted drawings to show there was space in existing plant to install the new process and to comply with all Australian OH&S Standards. Working together with customer to submit proposal to the Head Office overseas WON the contract. Project was a success meeting 6month lead time and budget.
*[Nursery Owner]* Needed a specific Potting & Mixing machine. for his yuccas nursery, but the problem was it was no longer manufactured. From his description and specifications our engineers designed and modelled in 3D software his requirements. "Potting Machine":nursery-equipment/3-potting-machines/ was manufactured and fully tested with potting media in our workshop, video was then sent to customer who was very pleased with the results. Machine disassembled and freighted interstate and installed.
*[Maintenance Engineer]* An industrial hydraulic fitting manufacturer had problems with gear and shaft breakages with their machinery. They also had problems repairing and maintaining. C-Mac offered to repair and maintain their machinery on-site instead of having to permanently employ fitters.
