Digital load cells from HBM allow for highly accurate filling of coconut milk in China
Thanks to the digital load cells from HBM used by Chinese machine manufacturer Best Crown, it can offer its end customer Shanghai Dairy Milk savings in the millions of euros annually. The numbers are simple. Controlling the filling quantities in Best Crown machines more precisely reduces the "give-away" portion – the safety margin for guaranteeing that the filling weight indicated on the package is reached.
Given a growing domestic middle class with more sophisticated demands plus a host of new export opportunities, China's food industry has been in a strong growth phase for years. Efficiency and reliability in filling and packaging of foodstuffs are at the top of the agenda for end customers and machine manufacturers alike.
Best Crown, a Chinese machine manufacturing company, decided to use the FIT/5 load cell from HBM for a new coconut milk bottling machine – a decision that is paying off.
