Tupunatron is an integrator partner of SCAIME in Central America, specialising in weighing and automated systems.
It designs and supplies complete solutions including load cells and weighing terminals, PLCs and supervision systems for all types of industrial applications, such as food processing.
Within the framework of automation of chicken packaging after slaughter, the customer’s requirement was to automatically sort the chickens by weight band. To perform this operation, the operator defines the different weight bands and corresponding products. Each chicken is suspended and transferred very rapidly along the rail.
Without interruption, the system must precisely weigh the chicken and place it in the appropriate section.
SCAIME and TUPUNATRON offered a complete solution in which the PLC controls the suspended conveyor, while the dynamic weighing is managed by the eNod3-C controller.

The eNod3-C carries out digital filtering to reduce the effect of vibrations and controls the entire dynamic weighing process.Each time a hook passes over the load cell, the eNod3-C calculates the weight of the chicken and sends this value to the PLC, which then ejects the chicken into the appropriate section.
