Z403 AUTOMATIC COMPOUND WEIGHT & PLACEMENT GAUGE

The Z403 Compound Weight & Placement Gauge has been designed to reduce the significant labour time associated with manual Compound Weight and Placement checks, whilst also reducing the risk of human error in this manually labour intensive process.

Key Features

  • The fully automated handling system will in turn, barcode ID and weigh each shell prior to the Compound Placement, storing the individual weights for the batch, in a secure database table for retrieval later.
  • After the shells have been passed through the lining process the operator will bake the ends in the usual manner and then return them to the gauge.
  • The gauge will then automatically identify each shell, and weigh it again. 
  • The barcode ID will ensure the risk of mixing or manual data entry errors are completely removed from the process, and the Compound Weight will be automatically calculated and displayed for the operator, for each shell.
  •  A Dimple Detection Station is also available to identify liner gun 1, giving further detailed traceability for SPC data analysis.
  • After Compound Weight, the Compound Placement can also be checked. This is completed by up to 3 optional Un-Curling presses within the gauge, for plants producing different shell diameters and types.
  • Once Un-Curled the shells are inspected by up to 3 high resolution cameras as the shells are rotated through 360 degrees. Detailed information on the Cut Edge Distance and High on Shoulder are provided around the complete shell circumference.

The Z403 Gauge has been designed to reduce the significant labour time associated with manual Compound Weight and Placement checks, whilst also reducing the risk of human error in this manually labour intensive process. By adopting a similar strategy to the existing manual process, Torus have incorporated state of the art ink jet printing to label each shell with specific information related to the Module, Liner, Sample, Date and Time.
