The box rolls into the filling area over a conveyor belt, is lifted there electrically and accurately filled to the desired weight via a special filling mechanism with weighing cells. It is novel that the dosing device and its filling tube at no point in time come into contact with the end product, thus avoiding the cross-contamination feared within the market. Moreover, an extraction system hinders undesired dust development in the working area, and that with a maximum product yield. After the desired weight has been reached, the box is deposited and a new box fed. Additional components for the completion of a fully automatic station such as box erectors, mechanical bag cappers and labelers, can also be offered by NEUMAN & ESSER and be integrated seamlessly.
The ultrasonic screen
The essential two-motor ultrasonic screen belonging to the complete system is manufactured by GKM Siebtechnik GmbH. Here, too, NEUMAN & ESSER utilized its many years’ experience with powder coating. A low construction size, high throughput, easy cleaning and smooth surfaces interplay with an optimized sieve ultrasound system and offer a highly efficient and compact solution, also for existing grinding systems from all manufacturers, in symbiosis with the filling station.
Static load surveillance
Development also focused on work safety for this system. As powder coating is a probable explosive material, a system introduced by NEA monitors the static loading of the components in order to hinder sources of ignition, providing an important contribution in the area of employee safety here.
The control and monitoring of all these described components takes place centrally via the overall grinding system controller. This not only enables the minimization of the number of controllers required, but also enables the evaluation and visualization of all system-relevant data.
