Perfect-Fill package filling system gives operators visual and audio feedback when a part is out of limit.

Two new weight-based tools from Sterling Scale Co . are intended to increase efficiency and provide material tracking data in batch and packaging applications. Perfect-Fill system checks the fill level of each component of a batch or package along with the overall weight of the lot or master package. New line of powered conveyor scales checkweighs packages as they pass over a scale. There is no need to stop the conveyor to obtain an accurate weight.


Powered conveyor scales are designed for short runs and custom products.

Perfect-Fill package filling system is built around XC880A instrumentation to qualify each part by weight and ensure proper container quantity. Operator receives visual and audio feedback when a part is out of limit. High and low limits, along with target quantities, are stored and retrieved simply and easily by entering a part number. Weight limits can be adjusted according to moisture content. Systems are available in capacities from 2 lb bench scales to floor scales with capacities in the thousands of pound range.

Line of powered conveyor scales is designed for short runs and custom products. Instrumentation stores and recalls blend numbers, part numbers, and piece weights that instantly reconfigure the scale to accurately weigh, count, and label individual products or batches as they come off the line with no process slow-down. Data on quality and production levels can be collected by the scale and sent to a central database over standard serial port or optional Ethernet connection.
