Model SD Servo Drive Depositors
Our Model SD servo depositors are bespoke designed and built to meet each client's food production needs. We can offer either full servo control or back-stop only for our single and multi-head depositors. Why choose servo control as opposed to pneumatic?
Advantages Of Servo Over Pneumatics
Considerable running cost savings when compared to pneumatic control.
Pre-set recipe control via HMI to automatically set speed and weight.
Greater control on fine increment adjustment to weight and speed during operation.
Complete control over stroke action to maximise throughputs per product.
Data extraction via USB for performance and downtime.
Automatic feedback adjustment to weights from a check weigh (*bear in mind there may be some distance between the check weigh and the depositor – not instant feedback and not pump specific alterations).
Automatic Synchronisation Of Stroke Setting
Instant synchronisation of the dispensing units on "multi-pump" machines using pre-set recipes. This dramatically reduces set-up time. Total flexibility of deposit and priming speeds during stroke: ramp up / ramp down functions are available to maximise speeds for narrow neck containers, splashing products or where there's a risk of contaminating the seal areas. This allows filling speeds to be maximised which can increase throughputs. Youtube
Alternate strokes from multi-pump applications can improve throughputs on specific applications. Two strokes can be achieved without priming which will then be carried out during a third operation of a line such as indexing, capping, sealing or manual handling. Youtube
A number of forward strokes from one prime. One pump can sequence a number of deposits (individual weight against barrel volume specific) eradicating priming during operation until a third process such as index, container traverse, seal or capping is required. On a two pump system, the first pump could deposit ‘X’ amount of shots, at the end of the stroke, the second pump would start the same sequence of ‘X’ shots whilst the first pump primes. Allowing for continuous depositing. Youtube
We can time in two different stroke lengths to start and finish at the same time allowing consistent dual product depositing. This function opens up the ability to be more creative with the visual end result of a product, giving consistent repeatability over a number of different axis. Youtube
