EWT Weighbridge Testing - Calibration Check on a Weighbridge

EWT WEIGHBRIDGE TESTING - A WEIGHBRIDGE CALIBRATION VIDEO

As you may well know, we have a brand new Test Unit Trailer! As it looks so awesome, we decided to get a video of it in action whilst it was undertaking a real life weighbridge calibration.
 
In the video below you can see Gary, our friendly EWT driver, show off his loading and unloading skills, the operation of the beaver tail ramps and how he performs every weighbridge calibration safely and efficiently. Check out the video below!

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".

EWT purchase new Weighbridge Test Unit Trailer

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!"

Introducing a New Weighing Indicator - The BX30 from Baykon

Introducing a New Weighing Indicator - The BX30 from Baykon

BAYKON'S NEW ADVANCED WEIGHING INDICATOR FOR PROCESS CONTROL & FORCE MEASUREMENT

 

BX30 Panel Mount Weight IndicatorBaykon Industrial Weighing Systems has launched the BX30 and BX30D panel type advanced weighing indicators. The BX30 and BX30D are for use with analogue and digital load cells respectively for process control, weighing and force measurement.

The BX30/30D design was based on cutting-edge technology and meets the requirements of all industrial process weighing applications with its high speed, high accuracy, powerful interfacing and excellent durability - as well as a favourable price advantage.

The indicator is equipped with a bright, multi-colour and wide-angle LCD display with 22mm high weight digits and a 16 digit alphanumeric information line. It includes 6 different user-languages, a bar graph, and a clear keypad with self-explanatory icons. The measurement unit can be set to g, kg, lb, klb, N, kN and none.

These powerful weighing indicators have approval of up to 10000 divisions for legal-for-trade applications according to EN45501 and OIML R76 for single range, up to 3 x multi range and up to 3 x multi interval. Display resolution can be increased to up to 300,000 divisions for industrial applications.

Powerful Interfacing and Inputs/Outputs 

4 digital inputs can be used for zeroing, taring, clear, print, hold, peak hold etc. and digital outputs can be programmable as free set-points with basic, window and threshold features. The indicator weighing indicator has large memory capacity - 500 items and up to 5 set-points for each record. Multiple Control Modes for the digital outputs enable the instrument to be used for sorting, filling, batching and more.

Onboard standard interfaces include opto-isolated RS232, RS422, RS485, Ethernet TCP/IP, USB ports and an SD card connector that can be used for uploading/downloading the back up files of the instrument. Different BX30/30D variants offer various additional options including analogue output and digital input /output configurations as well as interfaces for the key field-bus in the market of process control e.g. Profibus, Profinet, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Ethernet IP, Canopen, CC-Link, EtherCat, PowerNet etc. Importantly, the digital I/Os of the BX30/30D can be controlled by a PLC as a Remote I/O reducing the need for seperate PLC IO modules and additional cabling. The ultra fast analogue output of the BX30 also has very high resolution and great long term stability.

Do you need a Panel Mount Weight Indicator for Labelling, Filling or Checkweighing with Multiple Accumulators and Powerful Interfacing - choose the BX30!

Setup and Labelling is extremely easy on the BX30 with a simple menu driven operation and 5 different preset label formats available including single line, multi-line and EPL format with barcodes. Menu guided calibration, multi-point calibration, electronic calibration without using test weights, zero and span adjustment features bring efficiency and time saving to the operator. Electronic calibration is a very effective utility to calibrate heavy tank scales without unloading. The span adjustment feature for non-empty tanks/silos also provides the ability to service and adjust tank/silo weighing systems at any time.

Powerful Diagnostic features make the BX30 a Scale Engineer's dream

Extensive diagnostic functionality that allows engineers to test keys, serial ports, USB port, digital I/O, display, load cell (analogue & digital) and the printer quickly and efficiently. The instrument has data logs that contain an intervention history (when a user has entered the setup menu), any overloading of the scale, peak loads etc as well as optional alibi memory recording.

The BX30 panel mounted weighing indicator is suitable for use in wet, hygienic and harsh industrial environments, with it's IP67 protected front panel, aluminium body and stainless steel rear panel. Screw type terminals on the rear panel of the instrument also eliminates any chance of cables coming loose due to vibration, mobile usage etc.
