NALBACH LAUNCHES NEW AUGER FILLER WITH INTEGRATED SCALE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR MANUAL, BATCH FILLING, APPLICATIONS REQUIRING HIGH ACCURACY AND LOW MAINTENANCE.   


Countryside, IL (USA). November, 2004.


Expanding on its product solutions for dispensing powders, granulars, and flakes, Nalbach Engineering Company announces the release of an auger filling system, the “S” series, designed specifically for manual, batch filling, applications. The “S” series is perfect for low volume, batch applications and applications in which the density of the product varies significantly. The system incorporates a scale to provide actual weight feedback to the filler and uses two (2) fills per container. The first fill dispenses 90 – 95% (user programmable) of the target weight and the second “top-off” fill is based on the actual calculated product density of the first fill. This system monitors the product density on each and every fill providing superior fill accuracies to 1/10th of one (1) percent!

Unlike “bulk and dribble” systems in which the first “bulk” fill is followed by slow series of “dribble” fills until the target weight is met, the Nalbach system’s “top off” fill is a single fast fill, significantly improving throughput.

The filler’s control panel performs all set-up and operation of the entire system. This “HMI” panel is an intuitive, icon-based, graphical user interface with touch screen and comes standard with all Nalbach Servo Driven Auger Fillers. This powerful controller provides a single point of user control for the entire system making training, set-up and operation simple and straightforward.

Nalbach’s servo driven auger fillers incorporate PLC controlled brushless, direct drive, servo motor systems providing superior fill accuracy and reliability while dramatically reducing mechanical failures and downtime by eliminating most moving parts. All

Nalbach auger filling systems feature self centering tooling resulting in faster changeovers and cleaning times, stainless steel product contact parts and aluminum structural parts for exceptional durability, an empty hopper function for quick product changeovers, “Smart Agitator” technology to extend agitator life, product memory capable of storing filling parameters for up to 120 SKUs with one button recall, and weight set-up software that quickly, easily and automatically sets-up fill parameters.

This exciting new product is available worldwide through Nalbach’s direct sales and manufacturers reps.
