•  Input Queue

-Receives the part from the customer's equipment
  one at a time, end to end.
-Guides the part to the escapement one at a time.

•  Positive Escapement

-Takes control of the part.
-Releases one at a time to the Scale.
-Releases only when Scale is clear.
-A no-pinch-point approach.

Billet Sorting System


The AWS-v700-SC-3CW-204-H2 Three Class Checkweigh with Gate Sorting System is fast becoming the industry standard where accuracy and trouble free operation are needed. The check weigh system will deliver years of trouble free service in any application.

The operation of the system is simple and straightforward. The part is delivered to the system via the queue, end to end. it is then stopped by the escapement that releases it to the scale where it is weighed, and is released from the scale via the scale hopper. If the AWS-v700-SC Setpoint Controller determines the part is outside the pre-selected acceptable limits, it is sorted to either the over or under section using sorting gates. If it is good, it moves straight through the sorting section into a customer provided container.

Depending upon the size of the part and the closeness of the setpoints, up to 45 parts per minute are possible with the high level of accuracy for which ADVANCE WEIGHT SYSTEMS, INC. is famous.

The AWS-v700-SC Setpoint Controller not only operates the various components, but also provides, in a single unit, statistical gathering & reporting and RS-232 or RS-485 serial interface to the customer's production control equipment or computer.

Available in several mounting configurations, these systems will fit into any manufacturing environment.
