Automatic Master Ice Baler


The JMC Automatic Bulk Ice Bagger is a fully automatic, stainless steel bagger designed to open and fill pre-made wicketted poly bags. The bagger will adjust to fill 16 to 40 pounds of ice using its integral volumetric feeder. The filled bag is automatically presented along the takeaway conveyor into the optional Fuseaire 4 Hot Air Sealer, or other type of clThe JMC Adjustable Automatic Master Ice Baler is an automated bagging system which gently counts, accumulates and packs pre-packaged bags of ice into Master Bags/Bales. Once filled the Master Bags are automatically moved via a conveyor in an upright position to be closed/sealed.

The system can be interfaced with most automatic closing devices and is compatible with most standard ice bag sizes. The JMC “Space Saver” Incline Conveyor provides a compact footprint and the optional “Automatic Bypass” makes it ideal for loose stacking.

The system can be customized to pack most standard ice bag sizes.
