Worldwide demand for Tong’s latest Unifill big bag and box filler

The latest model of Tong's popular UniFill big bag and box filler has seen record demand in the first quarter of 2024. The advanced UniFill, featuring Tong's intelligent Auto-Touch HMI control, offers the gentlest filling of both big bags and boxes, resulting in a high capacity and versatile crop filling machine.

"The UniFill has always been a popular machine in our home and export markets," says Charlie Rich, Sales Director at Tong Engineering. "The latest machine, which now features easy-to-use HMI touch screen controls, has seen a surge in demand with vegetable producers looking to fill both big bags and boxes on a regular basis."

Featuring a unique, heavy-duty design, the UniFill features two lowering finger-flighted crop conveyors that cradle crop deep into big bags or boxes, ensuring the gentlest handling alongside even filling of both.

"We have updated our popular UniFill so that its flexible filling capabilities can now be easily selected and controlled with our unrivalled HMI touch-screen control system," explains Charlie. "This means users can quickly change machine set-up, selecting their filling requirements from a wide range of custom-determined bag and box sizes as well as crop types. In addition, when coupled with integrated weigh platforms, the UniFill can be programmed to fill to weight, with the option to add data capture and recording facilities to improve stock control and crop traceability."

"Demand for the UniFill continues worldwide, with the latest deliveries destined for Turkey and the USA," says Charlie. "The introduction of our proven Auto-Touch HMI control systems across our box and bag filling range is bringing enhanced control alongside intelligent diagnostics and safety modules, resulting in exceptionally efficient and high-performance filling solutions."

"Ease of operation and reliability are key to maintaining profitability throughout the vegetable handling process," adds Charlie. "It is our aim to work closely with vegetable producers worldwide to achieve seamless and automated solutions spanning all handling requirements, large and small. The demand for our latest UniFill demonstrates an ongoing focus within the industry to maximize efficiency through automation."
