AZO COMPONENTER® Step - Automatic weighing of minor and micro components

The AZO COMPONENTER® Step makes it possible to weigh minor and micro components automati­cally with gram accuracy, such as pigments, colourings, flavouring agents, additives, active agents and numerous other micro quantities. The system improves product safety while simultaneously boosting production efficiency by reducing individual manual production steps to a minimum. It can be used in the food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and plastics industries.

The target containers are positioned below the dosing points using a pneumatic drive. After the product is dosed with the quantity deter­mined in the recipe, the target container is transported one step forward to the next dosing point. Dosing screws combined with vibration bottoms underneath the raw material storage ensure accurate metering of components being handled. Once all components are in the target container in accordance with the recipe, it is unloaded at the end of the metering line and is ready for the next process.
