Automated Flexible Conveyor’s new Batch-Weigh System is a natural addition to the company’s multi-purpose Spiralfeeder™ conveyor system. The Batch-Weigh consists of a receiving hopper designed to suit the application, a hopper slide gate to contain the batch quantity, load cells, and the heart of the system, the control panel. The controls incorporate the latest electronic technology in AC Inverter drives and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s). Addressing the system is simply a push of a button on the front panel mounted keypad, with assistance through a menu-oriented LCD display.
Weighing accuracies of greater than 99% of full scale are typical with the AFC Batch-Weigh System. Components are selected to suit any operating environment, including explosion hazard areas.
