In every phase of the filling process – from charging to zeroing, to fine flow and coarse flow, to reflow and the final check – HBM’s digital load cell takes on these important tasks within the new net weight filler from KOSME. But FIT® can do more than this. As the first digital load cell on the market, it has built-in electronics to control complex filling processes. What this actually means is this: The intelligent load cell does not just provide all the important measured values, it also analyzes them and uses them to continuously improve the bottling process. So the FIT® administers taring and controls the newly developed filler valves, including the entire filling process.
In parallel with this, the digital load cell evaluates all the stations of the fill cycle and identifies in real time the perfect cutoff points during filling. And best of all, FIT® learns continually, each time it fills. The cell then automatically uses this valuable knowledge to optimize the fill result.
The advantages are clear. The continual improvements made by the self-learning digital load cell do not just save time and money within a specific filling process. For example, temperature variations and the associated differences in the behavior of the fill material are independently compensated, in favor of the perfect fill. In addition to this, 32 parameter sets for different fill quantities can also be stored in the EEPROM, safe from power failure. This means that the plant can be quickly and easily converted to different quantities and materials.
