Product features Weight controller Maxxis 5

The innovative weight controller Maxxis 5 is suitable for the most diverse of applications – from multi-component dosing to one-component filling and counting right up to vehicle weighing. Versatile interface options make it compatible with almost any weighing solution – either programmed individually or supported by customised software applications.

Minebea Intec’s expert team of software engineers, in conjunction with industry specialists, have created software solutions that allow the unit to seamlessly integrate into any process. However, users who require it can utilise the easy to use IEC61131 programming language to implement their own unique functionalities.

Key facts

To meet the wide range of customer requirements and applications, MIXACO were exploring ways to provide an all-in-one station solution which can be used for both dosing smaller amounts of ingredients and weighing the corresponding mixing tank.

More about the challenge

Challenge

For the high, multi-layered requirements of its customers, the globally leading mixing technology provider MIXACO offers high-quality, functional solutions. MIXACO customers come from a variety of industries, such as the chemical, pharmaceutical, plastics and paint industries. Particularly in the paint or chemical industry, dust can be a real problem: A dust-free application is a parameter for precise weighing results.

More about the solution

Solution

The top stage of the dosing station features a high-resolution bench scale (e.g. Combics). This industrial weighing solution ensures safe dosing of smaller amounts of ingredients which can be filled directly into the mixing tank underneath. To ensure that all ingredients listed in the recipe are provided in just the right quantity, the bottom stage of the dosing unit has a 1,000 kg IF series floor scale which has a particularly low platform, enabling easy positioning and weighing of mixing tanks.

Both platforms are connected to the weight controller Maxxis 5. In addition to ensuring precise weight display in both weighing ranges, the weight controller uses bespoke software applications to facilitate multi-component dosing and allows for connection to master systems.
