Feeding the product using a sealed hopper, with a capacity of about 30 litres, fitted with a product level control sensor and a motoriSed agitator.
The rotation speed of the worm screw doser, made from a solid, is electronically controlled by a brushless servo motor which allows the acceleration and deceleration ramps to be used for instant stopping of the screw, guaranteeing maximum dosing precision.
The lack of brushes and the clutch brake, peculiar to this type of motor, reduces maintenance considerably and the high mechanical performance, with height torques also at low speed, make this doser particularly suitable for handling difficult products.
Production data, the motor's acceleration and deceleration values and the storage of different programs for products and sizes can be entered through a digital control panel with an alphanumerical display.
All parts which come into contact with the product are made of AISI 304 or AISI 316 food grade stainless steel.
The volumetric auger doser can be combined with a vertical packaging machines and machines which use a different packaging principle. It can also be used manually.
With products that have variable density the auger doser can be coupled to a check-weigher being equipped with feedback to bring pack weight within the set tolerances.
MPI Australia was established in 1963 to service the fast growing needs of Australian companies for quality packaging equipment.
Founded on a strong technical base and a professional approach to business relationships, the companies corporate goal was a simple one -
Achieve industry leadership through a selectively chosen range of superior equipment representations supported by a fully qualified technical team in both sales and service.
Today, the company represents many internationally recognised manufacturers of packaging machinery and associated equipment.
Our head office facility, located in Sydney, incorporates a manufacturing division which has only served to add to MPI's strong technical base.
MPI's Melbourne and Brisbane offices service Victoria and Queensland with experienced staff in both sales and service back-up, whilst in all other States we are represented by selected agents who also offer technical support, backed up by the MPI reputation.
