Operator-guided and documented product feeding to vacuum processing systems – tracking & tracing included
Vacuum processing systems
The zoamatic smart controller of the vacuum processing system is combined with the ManDos manual weighing system. The zoamatic undertakes the process control, including automatic dosing while ManDos is responsible for reliably preparing the small additives quantities. If required, the entire system can also be connected to a customer‘s ERP system.
Manual weighing is operator-guided at the ManDos station for each individual batch. A touch screen PC guides the operator through the recipe.
Every weighing operation is monitored and documented by the touch screen PC, thus ensuring automatic tracing. Recipe tolerances are, of course, closely monitored.
Registering raw material batches by barcode reader and labelling the finished manually weighed container with barcode monitoring directly at the feeding point in the processing system are a further option.
Raw materials are supplied to modern production facilities used for manufacturing sauces, ketchup, mayonnaise, soups or spreads by vacuum processing systems, that generally involve automatic dosing of base liquids and manual feeding of powder ingredients, including squall quantities of liquid additives.
Since automatic systems tend to be inefficient when it comes to processing diverse varieties of raw materials, the manual feeding of powder ingredients is indispensable in guaranteeing complete flexibility of the production process.
