Automatic filling systems allow user defined fill rates to insure accuracy up to 0.3 oz, providing the most precise box or container filling. Offering a smooth transfer of boxes from 0 – 200 lb, the systems are automated and allow for unattended operation of filling with simple control set-up, quick disconnects between conveyors, and an easy to read visual indicator on a large graphical LED display. Utilizing minimal energy resources, the systems operate on 110 v and use no compressed air.
In-line box filling by count are the most economical type of systems. Cycle count systems are cost effective and easy to implement. Side-by-side box filling systems are used when space constraints are an issue.
