Don’t miss HBM at PPMA Total Show 2016

HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – will be exhibiting its world leading range of dynamic and batch weighing products, designed for packaging in the food and drink industry, at this year’s PPMA Total Show on the 27-29th of September at NEC Birmingham.

With speed, precision, hygiene and price being some of the key considerations for manufacturers of packaging machines, HBM will be showcasing its latest series of load cells and modules, which include the ‘Easy to Clean’ and digital load cell range, which have been specifically developed to cope with the demanding requirements placed on weighing constraints in modern manufacturing lines.

Suitable for use in a wide range of production environments, the FIT7A and FIT5A Digital Load Cells from HBM are the perfect solution where speed and precision is a key consideration.  Featuring a class C4 accuracy per OIML R60 and a maximum scale division Y of up to 25,000, the FIT7A addresses the problem of bottlenecks, which can slow down production rates.  Dramatically increasing speed and reducing overall costs, sophisticated new technology, which is incorporated in to the innovative FIT7A also means that it is now possible to perform an impressive 180 weighings per minute.  And where harsh and ambient environments are an issue, the FIT5A from HBM features integrated overload protection and the suitability for legal-for-trade applications per OIML R60 up to 3,000 divisions, ensuring accuracy, reliability and overall safety in any heavy-duty production facility.

Also on display at the show is the ‘Easy to Clean’ PW25 and the aseptic PW27 range of load cells, which have been developed to meet the strict hygiene regulations required in production.  Designed for use in filling systems and packaging plants, in multi-head combination weighers and static scales, the range are hermetically encapsulated and housed in stainless steel, making them compatible with all cleaning agents and disinfectant agents, which are commonly used in the production process.  Featuring a clean and smooth cylindrical design that is non-absorbent and free from imperfection, such as grooves and gaps, to avoid gathering, the top surfaces of the load cells are also inclined to prevent the collection of dust, product residue or water droplets, reducing the possibility of contamination.

The PW25 and PW27 from HBM are ingress protected to IP68, with IP69 as an option for added protection.  Furthermore the hygienic PW27 load cell, which enables efficient and accurate weighing equipment to be used in fields where aseptic production is required, has been developed to meet the guidelines set out by the EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering and Design group).

Easily connected to the PAD series of digital transducer electronics, which will also be on display, this range can be used to accurately digitise signals of analogue load cells or force transducers, even under the harshest of conditions.

To illustrate its impressive test and measurement capabilities, HBM will also be offering visitors the opportunity to view a filling machine model in action and an eccentric press demonstration model, for measured values of force and displacement.

Also featuring a series of beam load cells and modules for use in all sectors where goods are produced, processed or controlled and a range of presentation boxes, visitors can visit HBM on Stand C86 to find out more about solutions for dynamic weighing processes.
