The servo filling machines from Hinds-Bock Corp., Seattle, Wash., feature the latest in controls technology to achieve the highest efficiency with the smallest possible footprint.
The servo drive technology provides high-speed depositing with custom tuning of filling parameters to control the appearance and velocity of the fill. By controlling velocity, maximum speeds are achievable while maintaining clean fills. Speeds are also enhanced through the use of the Hinds-Bock servo-driven traveling spout bridge, which moves the spouts with the continuously moving containers.
The latest controls technology allows the collecting of data, such as performance data, uptime information, maintenance monitoring and fault alerts, through Ethernet communication, enabling the user to achieve the highest filling efficiency.
