FEMC: FEMC: Piston fillers sport HMI
FEMC (Bedford Heights, OH) piston fillers are now equipped with Allen-Bradley programmable logic controllers and interfaces from Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, WI) that control nearly every aspect of the filler’s operation.
The sealed waterproof A-B PV-300 touch keypad has a backlit 128x64 pixel LCD display. An HMI retrofit upgrade kit for previously installed FEMC piston block fillers is also available.
FEMC fillers have an accuracy to 1/10 of 1% for products with viscosities ranging from aqueous to particulate-containing slurries. The fillers are designed with up to 8 dispensing nozzles each nozzle capable of filling a maximum of 60 containers/min.
