Woodman Apache

Vertical Form-Fill-Seal Bagmaker

  • Overview

    The Woodman Apache bagmaker provides outstanding ease of use, speed, and package size flexibility to the non-snack food industries: candy, nuts, crackers, cookies, cereals and granular products.

    Woodman bagmakers are known for their value, performance, dependability, and durability. We used non-proprietary, top-tier, “off the shelf” Allen-Bradley® control components in a full servo design to lower your cost of ownership.

    The cost-saving Flex-Mount welded tubular steel frame is designed to support weighers, augers and volumetric fillers, eliminating the need for mezzanines. The low machine height provides greater installation flexibility.
