RMGroup unveils the next-generation automated mobile bagging system
Packaging and robotic automation specialists, RMGroup, has announced the launch of the CTM800, a state-of-the-art mobile bagging system tailored for adaptability, speed and efficiency. The system seamlessly integrates within three standard 40ft shipping containers, providing a complete plug-and-play solution for forward-thinking enterprises.
The CTM800 comprises an ingenious two-floor structure creating optimal space utilisation. On the second floor, the infeed dosing/weighing system is situated directly above the primary automated machinery, ensuring maximised productivity. On the ground floor, the advanced form fill and seal machine guarantees precise automation in the packaging process. This is further enhanced by a cutting-edge robotic palletiser, maintaining fluidity from start to finish. Additionally, a wrapping cell located on the ground floor completes the packaging process, making the CTM800 a comprehensive turnkey solution for businesses. The system is also known for its high-speed performance, achieving speeds of up to 18 bags per minute, depending on the product being bagged.
Commenting on the launch, Edward Rees, RMGroup’s managing director, said: ”2007 was the year that RMGroup made the first portable bagging and robotic palletising system - the first company in the world to pioneer this concept. As with many of the products within the mobile bagging range of machinery, they have evolved based on customer demand to bag product at source.
“Building on the containerised product range makes sense for our overseas customers. Today’s model includes a wrapping container which also applies a top sheet to protect palletised product. We’ve gone one step further in fixtures and fittings to provide a fully functioning ‘factory in a box’ environment to enhance the ease of maintenance, keep personnel safe, and create an ambient operating temperature to increase the life expectancy of equipment. Those looking for a system of this kind needn’t worry about planning permission. It can be picked up and relocated within hours.”
In addition to its cutting-edge features and unmatched efficiency, the CTM800 stands as a testament to RMGroup's dedication to sustainable solutions. The containers utilised in this system are not only optimised for performance but also designed with eco-friendly principles, further reinforcing RMGroup's commitment to sustainable innovations. This commitment has not gone unnoticed, as RMGroup has been recognised with previous awards for its containerised, mobile bag filling and palletising solutions and their direct impact on reducing carbon footprints for their customers.
As RMGroup continues to set new benchmarks and cater to evolving market demands, the popularity of their mobile bagging systems is continually evident, with the CTM800 being one of three mobile units currently being developed for the aggregates, wood pellets and agricultural sectors.
