Exclusive AWM Dealer Meeting in Istanbul
Baykon Weighing Solutions

AWM Limited held our exclusive Key Dealer Meeting last week at the HQ of our partners Baykon Industrial in Istanbul, Turkey.

The meeting was an unmitigated success, not just for the incredible hospitality and kindness of our hosts but for the opportunity for our partners to see first-hand how impressive Baykon really is as a company with their dedicated and friendly team, high quality product range, forward thinking R&D department and exciting new products that we are going to be launching in the UK very soon. 
 
AWM and BaykonBaykon hosted us for 3 days in their beautiful city and treated us to some amazing local food, drink and entertainment. As well as the fun and enjoyment of seeing Istanbul we were given a tour of the Baykon factory and trained on all of the impressive weighing and process control solutions that are available in their comprehensive product range.
 

Since becoming the UK distributor for Baykon and launching their products here just over a year ago, we have seen the Baykon brand shoot to prominence in the UK Weighing Industry.

Baykon LogoBaykon products easily compete with established brand names and surpass them on quality and affordability. If you are interested in becoming a distributor for AWM and Baykon please contact us today and we will be pleased to provide you with further information on our products and services.
 
We are getting great emails and comments on our social media from those who attended this years event, with many calling it the "Best Meeting Ever" (a pretty high accolade considering the escapades we have got up to on previous meetings!). We will be holding an open invite UK Dealer Meeting at our offices in Bury St Edmunds later this year (I know it's not Istanbul but it's a nice town none the less!) and we will be sending out invites for this event soon.

Waste Monitoring System for large Plastics Company
July 18, 2018
Waste Monitoring System for large Plastics Company

Waste Weighing to monitor and control Raw Material Input

AWM Limited, alongside one of their trade partners, recently installed a dual scale waste weighing system to monitor the raw material input for a leading Plastics Company. Prior to the installation the company was having to estimate the amount of bottles and recycled plastics going into their process from volumetric data. AWM were tasked with designing a waste weighing system that would enable an accurate measurement of the amount of plastic material being entered into the process in loose and bale form.

Providing the Solution - Dual Scale Raw Material Weighing, Loading Control and Reporting

Waste Weighing and MonitoringThe solution was to install two scales, one hopper scale for the loose plastics and one platform scale for the plastic bales. Both scales were connected to a Cardinal 825 Programmable Weight Indicator which continually monitors the weight input and waits for the waste material to be loaded on either scale.
 
The hopper scale controls a large traffic light which turns green when the hopper is ready to fill and red when it has reached it's maximum weight. This ensures the hopper is never overloaded by letting the loader driver know when to stop filling. Once the target weight has been met, the 825 Indicator waits for stability and then records the weight into it's on-board memory and adds the weighing record to an html report file that can be viewed and downloaded from any PC on the network. The indicator then turns on the conveyor system to remove the material from the hopper and once empty turns it off ready for the next load. 
 
At the same time that the hopper is being filled, a forklift driver can load bales of plastic onto a second platform scale that the 825 Weight Indicator is also monitoring. Once the weight is over a set threshold and stable, the 825 records the weight data and adds it to the html report file.
 
The key to this solution is that the weight of raw material inputted into the system is accurately captured but the speed of the loading operation is maintained. We supplied the complete turn-key solution from the Hopper and Weight Indicator with custom control software to the Traffic Lights and platform scale.
 
We can Provide the Solution to any waste weighing requirement. Please contact us on sales@awmltd.com or call +44 (0)1284 701222 for further information or to request a quotation.

Future Proof - Evolving with our Customer's Needs

FUTURE PROOFING HELPS MAJOR FROZEN FOOD PRODUCER UPGRADE THEIR WEIGHING SOLUTIONS

VWSLT Platforms Installed On Customers Site
One of our trade partners recently upgraded four of their customer's standard platform scales to VWSLT Stainless Steel Lift-Tops, reducing the time and man power required for end of shift wash-down at their factory and reducing their manual handling for Health and Safety.
VWSLT Stainless Lift Top Platform Scale


This latest investment follows last year's installation of multiple Cardinal 825 indicators with custom filling software that controls the flow and packaging of their market leading frozen food produce. Along with the upgrade to their new lift top platform scales, the customer has recently taken advantage of the future-proof nature of the 825 indicators and AWM's custom software by easily adding even more key features to their weighing software. The current modifications include adding in automated delays to the filling triggers and fitting light beacons that are triggered at specific points in the filling process to provide the operator with a visual display of the fill status.

Our trade partner said:"Your platforms have now been fitted and look great. The beacons have been installed and look really bright. The customer told me "If they can't see those, they want shooting" I presume this means that they are happy with them! Thanks for your help, I had visions of a mad rush before the harvest started, but it looks like everything will be finished with plenty of time to spare"

"We always strive to make our software and hardware solutions as future-proof as possible allowing them to evolve with our customers requirements".

Eastern Weighbridge Testing (EWT) are pleased to announce the delivery of their brand new test unit trailer

The new trailer will be used from today onward for all upcoming bookings - look out for it on your next weighbridge calibration or verification!

The investment in this top of the range Montracon custom design test unit trailer supports EWT's hugely successful introduction to the weighbridge testing market and ensures their UK wide weighbridge testing service is even more efficient, cost effective and reliable for their network of weighing trade customers.

EWT's Driver, Gary Debenham is really pleased with the new trailer. Gary said "The new test unit trailer is going to make our service even more efficient and reliable. We have designed it to be shorter for easier manoeuvring where access is difficult and with shallow full width flip toe ramps to make it safer in inclement weather. We have also added some other great features too which include the secure storage boxes, electrical power pack for the ramps, rear drop down landing legs for greater stability when we are loading and unloading the weights and a twin strap edge protection for better safety. Of course the 35mm Keruing Hardwood floor give it a great, classy looking finish too!"
