In this blog post, we’re reviewing a Filling option in the form of the Express Scale ESP JM-FF-ED Bagging Gross Weigher.
Express Scale ESP JM-FF-ED Bagging Gross Weigher
The ESP JM-FF-ED Bagging Gross Weigher is fully electronic and digitally controlled. The JM-FF-ED Electronic Gross Weigher* simultaneously weighs and fills open-mouth bags weighing between 20 and 110 pounds at speeds up to eight bags per minute, depending on your operational parameters. The dual-position gravity gate allows for bulk or dribble feed and provides accuracies of +/- 4 ounces, based on product flow and the consistency of bulk density.
Wraparound bag clamps are sized to your particular bag requirements. Air-operated center-grip bag spout facilitates dust control with a flexible connection to the main housing. GSE 465 controller with IP-66 stainless steel enclosure is rated NEMA 4X and features Final Target Weight, Slow Fill, Free Fall, Fill Delay, Clamp Delay, and Pound/Kilogram controls.

Quick Comparison of JM-FF-ED and GB-32 from Express Scale models
Both the JM-FF-ED and the GB-32 from Express Scale are gross weigh baggers, meaning they weigh the bag and contents together. However, they differ in their level of automation and operation. Here’s a comparison to help you choose the best one for your needs:
- JM-FF-ED: Electronic. The scale automatically weighs the product and stops filling when the desired weight is reached
- GB-32: Manual. The operator pulls a lever to open the gate and fill the bag. Weight is controlled by adjusting the filling time
- JM-FF-ED: Up to 8 bags per minute, depending on bag weight and product flow
- GB-32: 4-5 bags per minute
- JM-FF-ED: +/- 4 ounces, based on product flow and consistency
- GB-32: +/- 4 ounces
- JM-FF-ED: More features like dual position gravity gate for bulk or dribble feed, adjustable flow control, dust control connection, and programmable timers
- GB-32: Simple and durable, requires minimal maintenance. Can be customized with different spout sizes and shapes
- JM-FF-ED: More expensive due to its electronic components and features
- GB-32: Less expensive
