Dosing system for demanding goods

Anforderung

A customer in the plastics industry wanted to replace a current filling solution with lattice boxes on a floor scale. The problem was that the rubber melted into a large lump in the lowest area of the lattice box.

Solution

  • Filling level (550 dm³) is checked and controlled by a sensor.
  • Low-rotation (approx. 4 RPM) in the storage container prevents the granules from sticking together.
  • Filling quantities are directly assigned to a product in the HFT operating terminal.
  • Total progress and the quantities still to be produced can be displayed.
  • Optionally, the process data can be transferred to a higher-level ERP system.
  • The operator is guided by a display dialogue on the HTF terminal and is additionally informed about the progress by optical signals.
  • A pneumatic clamping mechanism holds the bag to be filled.
  • The safe arrangement of the trigger protects the operator from damage when hanging up the bag.
  • The successful end of the filling process is signalled by a green light.
  • The operator can release the clamp and remove the bag using a foot switch.
  • The filling process is restarted by inserting a new bag.
