Project Objective:

Using a vibratory system to maximise the accuracy of the feed to the CCW multihead weigher.

The Challenge:

Two dispersal systems are currently in use in the industry: vibratory and belt.

The challenge was to demonstrate how improved, production efficiency, can be achieved through the use of a cross head feeder.

Our Solution:

Our unique ‘synchronisation’ system is able to calibrate the flow to ensure a smooth and constant delivery of product to the weigher, ensuring the precise delivery of product to the weigher.

This synchronisation system enables the algorithm to be optimised, which ideal weights been achieved by the selection of the 4 most accurate pool hoppers. Alleviating the feast or famine that is experienced when the infeed medium is a belt conveyor.

Results:

In our on-site and field trials, the vibratory system increased the weigher accuracies to 93% with a vibratory cross head feeder straight discharge.

When a spigot [circular] discharge was trialled, we increased accuracy to 97.7% compared to conveyors, which returned a mean result of 79% across the various trails.

Finally, a solution that works for my production line.
