Turnkey Automated Batching System Helps Company Reach Sustainability Goals
The first of the five modules is a super sack bulk handling system comprised of six 54 cu. ft. dispensing hoppers arranged in a single row.

Air-activated vibration at each hopper is controlled by a PLC to ensure consistent product flow. A robotic scale cart, also governed by the PLC, moves under the dispensing hoppers and receives the precise amount of each ingredient specified in the recipe. The scale cart automatically docks with a transfer hopper to transport the ingredients. There are computer-controlled dust collection points at each of the five hopper discharge sites; dust collection can also be activated manually during hopper refilling.
