Batching Systems

Batching System

Our Automated, Semi-Automated or Manual Batching Systems will improve the efficiency of your powder and bulk material handling process. We specialize in custom designing and engineering systems to increase your process performance and product consistency, eliminate product waste and provide robust production data collection and reporting.

Our Batching systems utilize non-proprietary hardware; typically PC or intelligent HMI’s and PLC’s are the foundation of the systems. Developed using industry standards such as Microsoft Windows, SQL Server, Rockwell Automation & Microsoft .NET; our design approach is robust and dependable. Our systems manage formulation, raw material lot tracking, inventory & usage, alarms for abnormal conditions, hand add additions, move tickets that insure that the batch is being properly sequenced, and system parameters customized for each application and complete batch validation.

Typical system interfaces include most of the least cost formulation software packages and ERP systems to allow for seamless interfaces. Standard and customized systems are available for single and multiple scale applications.

This concept creates a validation system for the manual process. All systems include tolerance control and lot tracking/validation to insure that the correct materials are being weighed to the specification of the programmable formula.
