Employers are finding the market is stark with new hire options and rising raw material prices continue to plague manufacturers and material processors. Some are turning to automation and weigh systems to help increase their throughputs to meet the unprecedented demand they are experiencing.
Ensign has been integrating scale solutions within our material handling systems since our inception over 30 years ago. In this month’s Application Spotlight, we’re excited to walk through the operation and features of an automated batch weigh system we recently delivered. This system was custom designed with a recipe library that accurately weighed various batch sizes and then delivered the material downstream to a molding process.
Complete manual and automatic control over all system operations can be done by utilizing the large 15” touchscreen HMI with a real-time graphical representation of the system’s status. The display of material flow and the machine’s current status provides an intuitive interface that provides even the newest operator the ability to control the system with little training required.
Ensign Equipment provides weigh systems to a multitude of diverse industries, and our unique modular design strategy enables us to quickly meet specialized project requirements by adding application-specific options for quickly adjusting material throughput, level controls, operator ergonomics, and more. We strive to deliver robust, high-quality, custom equipment that is built to last and meets specialized process constraints in dramatically less time than the competition.
