Twin tilt-down flexible screw conveyor

The Bev-Con twin tilt-down flexible screw conveyor system with dual hoppers on a common mobile base is a self-contained system that can fill two vessels with the same material simultaneously, or convey two different materials. Constructed and finished to 3-A sanitary standards and mounted on a frame with locking casters for in-plant mobility, it can be utilized in multiple locations and rolled to a washdown booth. The two conveyors are engineered to move dry bulk solids efficiently without product degradation, especially non-free-flowing materials that pack, cake, smear, fluidize, compress or are otherwise problematic to convey.

Gear motor QR codes

Drive system gear motors now feature a QR code, storing a wide range of data and enabling the user to quickly access information. These stickers can be scanned using a photo app or QR code app and will bring the user to the digital service webpage. The site includes a documentation center, a resource for product-specific manuals and literature; the spare parts shop, for fast online ordering of stock components and replacement parts; and the customer portal, a comprehensive tool that allows users to select and configure their drive systems online.

Flexible screw conveyor with protective electrical enclosures

The FTH-25 Spiral feeder mobile flexible screw conveyor encloses the electrical wiring system inside a corrosion-resistant aluminum conduit. The rigid metal piping eliminates the potential for exposure to dust and ambient moisture and prevents contact with workers, equipment and bulk materials in process, providing a high level of durability, safety and longevity. Suitable for food, chemical, pharmaceutical and other manufacturers concerned with safety, cleanliness and reliable operation, it automatically transfers powders, pellets and other dry bulk materials from the hopper to discharge via a screw auger rotating inside an enclosed tube.

Packaging robot

The Model 600 robotic packer offers maximum flexibility to run multiple package styles with a variety of infeed options, making this machine a good choice for packagers looking to upgrade from hand packing or moving from another package style. It is equipped with a high payload two-axis robotic arm that can be programmed for virtually any packing configuration. The operator station offers control in a clear and concise interface, including setup, operation, real-time and historical status reports, maintenance alerts, and fault detection for troubleshooting. Changeover can be completed quickly by new product/pack selection at the operator station and quick-change tooling reduces downtime for adjustments. It has painted steel construction with high visibility, interlocked guard doors. For high moisture environments, a stainless steel model with washdown-rated components is available.
