Balancing the bagging triangle to maximize your packaging efficiency

This article explains how balancing the three sides of the "bagging triangle" — your material, bag, and bagging equipment — can maximize your packaging efficiency.

Packaging dry bulk material in small bags from 5 to 100 pounds is a simple yet sensitive balancing act that can be pictured as a bagging triangle. Maximum efficiency and productivity are at the triangle's center, with the material, bag, and bagging equipment forming the three sides. A shift or change in one of the sides necessitates a change in one or sometimes both of the others, underscoring the delicate balance between the material, bag, and equipment. Finding the right balance for your bagging system will help you meet the goal of accurately filling and sealing as many bags as possible in a specified period.
