Active Feedback System Saves Product Giveaway

It is important for customers to have confidence in the accuracy of their equipment. One way that All-Fill can provide constant dynamic feedback on the performance of a filling operation is through the use of our proven Active Feedback system, which over a production run can greatly reduce the amount of giveaway of product to around 0.1% when filling to Average Weight Legislation.

Allowing customers to ensure that they do not consistently over-fill products can lead to great savings in ‘product giveaway’ and provide a return on investment many times the value of the filling machine over it’s lifetime.

Using an integrated check-weigher we can also monitor under/overweight containers and allow these to be rejected if required.

This system was of great interest for a leading producer of cocoa powders when they purchased their latest dual-head filling machine from All-Fill. Filling alternate products on the line, each independently driven head features a servo motor to rotate the auger, driving a precise volume of powder into each container. Using the check-weigher to monitor the output highlights any inconsistencies as a result of varying powder densities being loaded into the filling machine.

With no container change parts and product format recipes stored on the machine HMI, changeovers are quick, efficient and easy for operators to understand.

To maximise dust containment, containers can be ‘bottom-up filled’ – each container is raised prior to filling and then during the fill it is lowered to match the increasing powder volume in the container – using this system in conjunction with a standard dust extraction nozzle keeps the working area clean and hygienic.
