  • Improving Weigh Feeder Control Using Scale Location Compensation
    This paper describes how "Scale Location Compensation" can be used to improve weigh feeder performance in various applications. Scale Location Compensation ("SLC") was developed by Thayer Scale to meet special systems needs in 1976 (1) (2) (3) (4), and is used in control loops to effectively move
  • Learn how to Batch Directly from Bulk Bags
    A bulk bag batching system is comprised of a bulk bag discharger whose outlet is directly coupled to a feed control device such as a screw feeder or flexible conveyor. The feed device is typically supported by the bulk bag discharger support structure. A microprocessor based batch weigh controller
  • Applications with Inclined and Vertical Loads
    and referring to figure 1, let the empty conveyor weigh 20 lbm and have a load of 80 lbm being conveyed, and let the acceleration rate = 1 ft/sec2. In order to select the proper drive/motor rating, it is necessary to evaluate how the forces act on the motor shaft.
  • Flywheel Housings and Flywheels
    Handling Description: Mounting parts onto an engine. Problems: Very heavy parts being mounted to an engine on a hanging conveyor and engines are allowed to sway. Operators had to crawl under the engine to insert shields onto installed housing with only 6" clearance. Requirements: * Housings
  • Diesel Engine Cylinder Liners
    Handling Procedure: Pick up cylinder liners from a table, move the parts over a hopper in the floor, and pitch upward to allow shot blasting material to fall out of the inside of the liners. After emptying material from liners, pitch down and place onto a conveyor. Problem: Cylinder liners
  • Increase Productivity Through Vibration Packing
    NEED: The customer had an application problem. They needed to weigh 55 pounds of flakes in a carton on an existing scale, but needed to vibrate it to pack the material so they could close the carton and then make a 90 degree transfer to a conveyor in a hazardous area. They wanted to accomplish
  • Close shave -- Servos process veneer quickly
    feeds the blade toward the wood before it makes a down stroke on the flitch. A thin sheet of veneer gets sliced off and carried away on a conveyor mounted above the carriage. The blade retracts at the bottom of the stroke and increments to get ready for the next cycle. At a typical speed of 90
