GREIF is a global leader in industrial product packaging. Greif manufactures all kinds of barrels and containers in steel, plastic or fibre, and provides mixing, filtering and packaging services for a broad spectrum of industries.
For a barrel packaging line, Greif Italy needed a dynamic system for controlling barrel weight in comparison with a standard weight.
The weighing system had to meet the following performance standards: a weighing rate of 100 barrels per minute, with a deviation of less than 10 grammes for a weighing capacity of 25 kg.
SCAIME offered a solution with its Italian integrator partner NONIS Srl.

In this solution, the PLC controls the conveyor belt. With the parameters provided by the PLC or the eNodTouch man-machine interface, the eNod4-C oversees digital filtering, calculation of the weight of each barrel, and automatic elimination of non-compliant products.
