Dynamic Check Weighing Machine on The Connected Enterprise™ Helps Prevent Overfilling Expense

Dynamic Check Weighing Machine on The Connected Enterprise™ Helps Prevent Overfilling Expense
Hardy Process Solutions (USA) – Hardy Process Solutions’ Dynamic Checkweighers were able to diagnose and reduce overfill rates through process optimization with filling machines. With integration into the factory control system, via Rockwell Automation’s FactoryTalk®, the Hardy Dynamic Checkweigher is saving the manufacturer overfill expenses of approximately $35K annually.

Machine control, statistics, and analytics are managed with an integrated Rockwell Automation CompactLogix® PLC while the high performance Hardy HI 4050CW check weigher controller contributes as a co-processer, generating fast, stable and accurate weight data. The resulting high speed check weighing system can process up to 350 pieces per minute and generate a myriad of process data that is easily shared with any other device on The Connected Enterprise Network.

Using Wide Area Networking (WAN) connectivity, the customer was able to:
  • Monitor real-time production trends and process performance
  • Set alarms around real time trend data
  • Share and distribute TAGS with upstream control systems
  • Track and Monitor local changes made on the equipment
  • Push down product recipes and operating parameters from a centralized control center

Hardy provided these capabilities to the customer with standard integrated software. The Hardy Dynamic Checkweigher series is a fully automated system designed to automatically weigh items while in-motion. The Checkweigher controller can communicate both upstream and downstream across Rockwell Automation’s The Connected Enterprise™.

Flexible and highly accurate, the Hardy Dynamic Checkweigher weighs products of virtually any shape or size in containers such as boxes, cans, bottles, rigid shrink-wrapped packages or flexible packages. Items compatible with the system include bagged and boxed sugars, raw meats, fruits, vegetables, chemicals, fertilizers, and consumer packaged goods.
