OEM X Body Equipment using the R423 on the Acculoader for High Speed Container Loading

OEM X Body Equipment using the R423 on the Acculoader for High Speed Container Loading

Release date: 10 Mar 15

The Acculoader is designed for high speed container loading and comes with a built in scale system to manage container weights. It is ideal for scrap steel recycling, timber and bulk commodities. Acculoader is manufactured by X-Body Equipment Inc. in Loomis, California, USA and uses a Rinstrum panel mount stainless steel R423 weight indicator. Watch the excellent animation demonstrating how it works.

From the manufacturer:

" Load 20 to 40-foot containers in as little as 10 minutes with the Acculoader, instead of using a skip steer which could take more than an hour. Designed for any size yard, this unique product for HMS 1 and 2 steel loads products with maximum weight capacity and comes with an integrated scale system that allows for accurate container weight."

Mixing Applications using Thames Side T95 Weighing Assemblies

Mixing Applications using Thames Side T95 Weighing Assemblies

Release date: 09 Feb 15

Rinstrum is now stocking T95 assemblies which are ideal for weighing large vessels and mixers. Due to the design of the T95 it offers an excellent means of mounting where traditional assemblies with large constrainers were typically required. The T95 offers a self-centring arrangement where the load is applied through a tension S type load cell but in a compression assembly. The assembly then finds its own centre point due to gravity but still offers lateral movement found in many mixer applications.

In addition the M12 connections simplify the cabling and installation and can work back to a simple 4 way summing unit using M12 connections.

Call one of our sales engineers today to discuss weighing arrangements for your next mixing application.

Team Arrow AD 2015 Solar Challenge wrap up by Darren Pearson

Team Arrow AD 2015 Solar Challenge wrap up by Darren Pearson

Release date: 21 Jan 15

We attended the World Future Energy Summit with the cars yesterday and had a chance to see the exhibition and attend the awards ceremony. Compelling speech from president of Egypt and a lifetime award was given to Al Gore.

Congratulations to University of Michigan Solar Car team with their 3 wheel car as the overall winner! In the end Arrow 1 placed 5th after penalties (for speeding...) So 2nd fastest 4 wheel car, 5th overall and on Day 2 we were able to mix it with the best. The car is currently top 3 in the world performance wise  we just need to tune up our strategy and sort out reliability on a few systems. October though will bring a new batch of contenders so we need to step it up a little to stay competitive.

Thanks again to solarracing.org  for great coverage.

Arrow 1 completed the necessary +250km on the Yas Marina Circuit yesterday to qualify for the road race that starts today. Start positions were determined by furthest distance - they were allowed to drive all day (9-5) until they ran out of battery or time. Great photo from the www.arabiangazette.com of the qualifying start yesterday - Team Arrow in the middle

Arrow 1 will be starting in 4th position (of 15 cars) - well done Team Arrow! For those of you who don't follow F1 or V8 Super Cars, the Yas Marina Circuit really does have a marina in the middle of it - amazing place.

OEM Packweigh using R400 Series K410 Filling Firmware

OEM Packweigh using R400 Series K410 Filling Firmware

Release date: 23 Dec 14

Australian based OEM Packweigh has been using Rinstrum R420's on their packaging equipment for many years. Their range includes bag filling and weighing systems, bulk bag and automatic bagging machines. The K410 filling firmware allows for multi-stage filling, fill, dump and pulse and multi-speed filling.  

What's a FILL stage?

A FILL stage allows for a material to be filled using single, double or triple speed filling. These can be concurrent or one after another. Within a FILL stage there can be:

  •   start and end time delays;
  •   fill interlock input;
  •   start condition of an auto tare; and
  •   error correction using jogging.

What makes the R400 Series great for filling and batching?

  • Overall system accuracy with unprecedented filling control with uncertainty of less than 1 millisecond.
  • The 32 I/O control points allow for complex control with multiple set points, enables and interlocks.
  • The multi-line display shows batch progress, current weight, target weights, material name along with dedicated batch status annunciators.
