Advantages:

  • Simple, fast and precise dosage process
  • Traceable manual operations
  • Direct data transfer to your process control system (Profibus, etc.)
  • Tolerance control
  • Predefined, automatic tare
  • Memorisation of thousands of product sheets.
  • Time and printing saving for monitoring the traces.

Operating principle:

The manual weighing scale guarantees precise in-line dosage. It is fitted with an HMI connected to the main network.
According to the recipe in progress, the operator views the various ingredients and their weight to be manually added to the recipe.
Guided step-by-step by the HMI, the operator selects each product to be dosed by the batch number or by using a bar code reader. The system then checks that the weight of the dosed product falls within the defined tolerance.
Each step is validated. After each weighing, added to the recipe and validated by the operator, the following ingredient to be dosed is automatically displayed.
Step by step, no material can be forgotten in the recipe and the weight of each product is controlled. All these steps are then detailed in the traceability sheets.
