Unit check weigher

The unit check weigher is used for dynamic weighing of rubber extrudates in tyre production.

Specific weight and other parameters such as material thickness and strip width can be used to calculate the thickness of the extrudate and control the process as per specified tolerances during the ongoing production process.

The unit check weigher ST3,6/600 comprises:

  • Belt weigher
  • Force absorber
  • Photoelectric sensors
  • Support frame
  • Controls
  • Weighing terminal

Technical specifications for the weighing terminal:

  • 24V DC mains adapter
  • Analogue weighing system connection – scale range 40 kg/10 g increments
  • Weight/operator guidance display with 10 g scale increments
  • RS-232 interface
  • Field bus gateway RS HMS Anybus S ControlNet adapter
  • RS-485 bus interface to control the relay coupling

Advantages of the KESTERMANN solution

  • Cross-shift compliance with specified tolerances
  • Guarantees the precision required for tyre production
  • Optimisation of material usage

Metre-weight check weigher

The metre-weight check weigher is able to weigh uncut extrudates in line during the process, thus regulating production.

An extrudate measuring exactly one metre is on the scales at all times, allowing production to be quickly corrected directly after the extruder.

Metre-weight check weigher MG 1000 comprises:

  • Roller conveyor
    Polished, balanced aluminium precision rollers in a smooth-running design with linear adjustment for straightening the rollers.
  • Force absorber
    Mechanical shoulder to absorb tenfold excessive pressure from the adjustment screws.
  • Support frame
    Rectangular tube structure, welded in a paint-coated design.
  • Weighing terminal

Technical specifications for the weighing terminal:

  • 24V DC mains adapter
  • Analogue weighing system connection – scale range 20 kg/5 g increments
  • 2 x 200-character weight/operator guidance display with 5 g scale increments
  • Field bus gateway RS-232 HMS Anybus S ControlNet adapter
  • RS-485 interface to control the relay coupling

Advantages of the KESTERMANN solution

  • Cross-shift compliance with specified tolerances
  • Guarantees the precision required for tyre production
