Riggs Autopack Ltd is launching their servo control depositors and filling machines at this year’s PPMA Show, at Birmingham NEC.

Visitors to the Lancashire company stand on A21 will see a twin servo control unit which demonstrates the advantages of the advanced control features to give greater deposit control within a recipe-based HMI screen.

Product Recipe Control and Data

* Reduced down-time on set-up between product changeover with one touch, pre-set recipe selection.
* Repeatable re-selection of the fill speed and weight to suit each product and container size with recipes.
* Less reliance is placed on the operator in the set-up of the depositor, therefore reducing possible human error.
* Data extraction available for reports and analysis with feedback from 3rd party equipment (check weigher, metal detector).
* Reduced cost of electric over compressed air (needs calculating).

Greater Control

* Slow start / ramp up / slow finish control to increase the effective depositing of difficult food products or into awkwardly shaped containers.
* Fine tune increment weight + / – during cycles without need to stop machine.
* Feedback and automatic adjustment via weigh check cell.
* Automatic synchronisation or alternate strokes of individual pump stroke on multi-pump applications.
* Multi-head machines will all work at same time and will not be held back by slowest depositor.
* Varying viscosity products have no effect on the speed of the depositing so the volume should remain constant.
* Multi-shot function from a single prime stroke to reduce cycle times.
* Greater synchronization with other equipment such as dipping heads, rise on fill, swirl or decorating heads.

Also, on display will be a PLC control twin head automatic filling machine with conveyor, and a selection of semi-automatic filling machines and transfer pumps with pneumatic control designed for small to medium scale food production.
