Automatic Octobin Tipping System

22/02/2013

After 6 months of planning, design, build and testing we have now completed the installation and commissioning of a fully automated tipping solution into a large process operation of the worldwide known confectionery plant. Now operational the system is aiding our customer improve performance and efficiencies across their process.

 

Traditionally our tippers are designed to tip Dolav style bins but in this instance we needed to design an Octobin receiving chute ensuring no product was wasted on the floor.

Along with this we needed to make the tipping process automatic to allow the operatives time to gather the product and load them without starving the production stream. This was achieved with a series of sensing devices and level detection along with fully adjustable system settings through the HMI operator interface, making what is traditionally a functional but crude machine more operator integrated.
