Area Mass Sensor

AMS300 / 600 / 1200 / 2400

unique sensors which have revolutionized mass conveyor control on canmaking lines

Smooth, precise, self-correcting speed control together with well regulated can supply

These sensors provide an analog signal that is proportional to can density / can back-up on the conveyor. The signal is then used to modulate machine speed or conveyor speed accordingly.

Conveyor stability is vital for today’s lightweight cans and high speed machinery. The AMS monitors cup accumulation on the cupping press discharge or distribution conveyor. The AMS analog output is used to regulate the cupping press’ variable speed drive, adjusting the rate of press strokes based on cup demand. The AMS enables complete control, creating optimum conveyor conditions and accumulation space as well as minimum can pressure.

Cupping Press Modulation

The AMS monitors cup accumulation on the cupping press discharge or distribution conveyor. The AMS analog output is used to regulate the cupping press’ variable speed drive, adjusting the rate of press strokes based on cup demand.

Q

Stable Conveyor Conditions

Conveyor stability is vital for today’s lightweight cans and high speed machinery. The AMS enables complete control, creating optimum conveyor conditions and accumulation space as well as minimum can pressure.

"

Conveyor Pressure Control

This is accomplished by varying conveyor speed relative to fill level. When full, the conveyor should run at machine rate, creating no excess can pressure. However, as the conveyor empties, the speed should increase. Thus, when recovering from an empty-out situation, conveyor speed is at a maximum, reducing transit and refill times and adding precious seconds into line efficiency.
