Heat and Control - FastBack® Left Right Center (LRC) Diverting Weigher Infeed Solution
The LRC combines its pivoting design with patented Revolution® Proportional Gate 3.0 and Ishida's twin weigher feeders to build a viable distribution and packaging system within budget that fits a defined space and complies with regulatory standards.
The LRC has two modes of operation:
(1) Discrete Feeding: weigher feeder pivots to the left, right, or center based on call signals from the weigher.
(2) Biased Feeding: weigher feeder's initial position is determined by weigher and bagmaker setpoints and auto-adjusts to bias the product flow to improve weigher performance. This mode of operation is particularly beneficial when twin bagmakers produce large bags on one side and small bags on the other.
Heat and Control's patented FastBack Revolution Proportional Gate’s advanced and integrated packaging controls, combined with a pivoting weigher-feeder design accurately delivers consistent product streams to the weigher, whether feeding only one side of the weigher or both, and can automatically adjust to biased feeding for simultaneous small and large bag production.
