AB Fair 2004: Mettler Toledo delivers fast, precision weighing for dosing processes

Orlando, FL—To provide weighing precision in the milligram range for harsh environments, Mettler Toledo is introducing its Modulo WMH weighing platform and WM weighing modules at the Allen-Bradley Automation Fair 2004, Oct. 27-28, at the Orange County Convention Center.


Orlando, FL— To provide weighing precision in the milligram range for harsh environments, Mettler Toledo is introducing its Modulo WMH weighing platform and WM weighing modules at the Allen-Bradley Automation Fair 2004 , Oct. 27-28, at the Orange County Convention Center. The firm says split-second, milligram-range weighing is possible for industrial applications, and that it can optimize the use of valuable materials, reduce cycle time, and minimize downtime.

Mettler Toledo adds that its sensors meet automation industry requirements, and enable many ways to optimize efficiency and quality control. Modulo units can be integrated into an existing process, for example, allowing immediate evaluation of measured parameters, while sequential weighing is concurrently conducted outside the process. Also, Modulo can determine, in fractions of a second, whether a pellet, a molded article, a sinter piece, or a subassembly meet quality criteria.

“High precision and speed make Modulo ideal for a variety of industrial applications, and the technology quickly pays for itself in any environment where chemical, pharmaceutical, or exceptionally valuable or safety related substances are dosed,” says Frank Cava, Mettler Toledo’s industrial business area market manager. “Modulo allows users to increase the quality, reliability, and efficiency of a process by optimizing the use of valuable materials, reducing cycle times by increasing the speed and accuracy of the dosing process, and minimizing downtime.”

Modulo units can be directly connected to a process control system, and are easily configured through its service interfaces, making them adaptable to unique connection requirements and operating conditions. Modulo communicates via Profibus DP, DeviceNet, Ethernet via accessory modules, and allows direct data transfer via RS232 or RS422. No terminal is required. Modulo is also fully compatible with Mettler Toledo’s other hardware and software products, including its ID7, ID30, FreeWeigh, FormWeigh, and SQC systems.

Available in two product lines, Modulo WM weighing module covers a weight range of 120 grams to 6 kg at a resolution of 0.1 mg to 0.01 grams, while the WMH weighing platform incorporates Mettler Toledo’s proven series platform design in sizes from 15 kg x 0.1 grams up to 600 kg x 10 grams. With an IP67 rating, the WMH weighing platform withstands even the harshest industrial environment.
