Weighpack Systems Inc: Auger filling machine
WeighPack’s Star Auger Filling Machine is ideal for filling a variety of granular and powdered products like coffee, powdered sugar, flour and chemicals.
Equipped with a servo-drive motor and a newly integrated PLC function, the Star Auger is now more accurate, has a noticeable increase in response time and reduces electrical interference when coupled with auxiliary packaging equipment. Featuring automatic feed back adjustment, the finished package can be checked-weighed, and then the Star Auger will adjust the auger screw automatically to stabilize any weight deviations. A viewing glass allows the operator to see how much product is left in the hopper. Available in 26 and 50 liter hopper, the Star Auger can run at speeds of up to 80 cycles per minute with a filling weight of up to 1000g. Options available include double catch door mechanism, level sensing controls and stainless steel stand. The machine easily integrates with any type of bagger or inline indexing conveyor.
