Automatic Master Ice Baler


The 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 the JMC FuseAire4(tm) hot air sealer or most other automatic closing devices and is compatible with most standard ice bale bag sizes. The optional JMC “Space Saver” Incline Conveyor provides a compact footprint and the optional “Automatic Bypass” makes it ideal for loose stacking or to re-direct product to another process without the need for re-configuring equipment.



POWER: 230/460/550 volt 3 ph.60 hz (208 volts minimum)
AIR: 5 CFM @ 80 PSI
CAPACITY: Up to 10 Master bags per minute (see your representative)
