Accuweigh’s Budpak Newcastle branch is currently supplying upgraded weighing controllers for three linear weighers at CSR’s sugar operations in Malaysia.
Used for high speed dosing of white refined sugar into a VFFS machine for packaging, these linear weighers are already a favourite with sugar companies throughout the Asia Pacific region with over 60 units, with six to eight heads each, being installed within the last 20 years.
The existing linear weighers were sold by Budpak in the 1990’s and are being replaced with Budpak’s current linear weigher controller, the PAK-SCAN 500. This controller is based on an Allen-Bradley touch screen PLC with custom software to provide an operator friendly graphical interface to all weighing functions of the machine.
Each PACK-SCAN 500 controls up to eight weigh buckets; achieving both high speed fillings with very high accuracies.
Also used for packing sugar, rice, powders and pet foods, Budpak’s retail weighers are just one of many products supplied by the high profile Australian packaging company.
Budpak has branches in all mainland states, offering complete after sales service on linear and multi-head weighers, bagging/filling equipment, stretch wrappers, and robot palletisers.
