The line features high-speed performance, and offers more than twice the processing speeds to boost system performance, the company says. It enhances real-time information for improved productivity and is suitable for applications such as sorting, flling, labelling, packaging, blending and batching. It works with all servo motor types including Brushless DC and DC Brush motors, and supports several feedback methods, including encoder and resolver. This new enclosed washdown system is an internal product for non-product contact areas of the fller. The machine sanitizes everything inside the guarding, including the inside of the guarding walls, with the exception of sensitive capper areas. The sanitizer runs down the inside of the enclosure and fows to the base of the fller where it is captured and sent to the drain, making it simple to clean enclosures at the touch of a button.
