The Advanced Volumetric System (AVS) is a highly efficient and economical alternative to combination scales for companies challenged by products that shift density during a packaging run. The unit is only 40 in. tall, so it is more easily integrated within compact packaging environments. The Spee-Dee® AVS utilizes a single Allen-Bradley PLC to control both the filler and scale and features a tool-less design. This enables the unit to be easily and quickly disassembled so that cleaning and product changeover are accomplished in minutes, resulting in maximum uptime. Components for the filling and weighing operations are non-proprietary to minimize replacement cost and ensure parts availability. There are also fewer components within the unit, further reducing maintenance expense. To promote operator safety, the unit features a safety lock system and is fully guarded with a plexiglass and stainless steel enclosure.
