Designed to control the filling of containers with product pieces being moving along a motorized conveyor. A Weigh-Tronix scale indicator turns on and off 2-speed motors in response to the container's weight. Once a target weight and a dribble weight is set, the system fills at top-speed until the dribble weight is reached. Then filling continues at the slower speed, until it shuts off at precisely the target weight. This system is used is several mussel processing plants.
A Weigh-Tronix scale indicator tracks and helps control the quantity of various ingredients and medicines that go into fish feed. In software a table of ingredients is created, and recipes for allowed feed mixes are defined that specify which ingredients to add and how much of each. When the operator selects the recipe he is stepped through each element to add to the batch, and the weight of each is verified and recorded for quality control purposes. A PC application stores the weights and time of each batch for production reporting .
