Affordably Replace Manual Ingredient Batching

Sterling, IL, For Immediate Release:  Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its Affordable Batching Controller.  Sterling is a manufacturer of custom engineered and manufactured micro, minor and bulk weighing and ingredient batching systems, process controls and plant automation. The 45+ years of experience we have in these system and industrial areas has afforded us the ability to provide this Entry-Level Affordable Batching Controller.

The Affordable Batching Controller is a semi-automatic batching system that still requires operator involvement through each step in the batching process, but provides automated operator instructions/prompting, ingredient validation and lot tracking, automatic weighing with over/under tolerance control, etc. This Affordable Batching Controller will eliminate bad batches that result from operator error and interruption.  The operator no longer needs to keep track of where he is in the batching process, the automated Hand Prompt Batching Station does that for him automatically. No missed ingredients! No bad batches!

The Affordable Batching Controller’s PC and Touchscreen Display will ask the operator to weigh ingredients. The Sterling Systems & Controls' Affordable Batching Controller sequences an operator through a formula one ingredient at time.  The primary advantage of the system is to ensure that each ingredient is added to the container, is within a programmed weight tolerance, and from the correct ingredient lot before the controller will index to the next ingredient to be added.  This will ensure the validity of all batches created by the operator.

Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc. has 45+ years of experience providing efficient solutions for process equipment, batching, micro, minor and bulk weighing, bag unloading systems, bag filling systems as well as plant automation.  Sterling Systems' designs utilize the latest technology to provide specialized data management, raw material management, along with production data tracking.  For more information contact Sterling Systems & Controls at 1-815-625-0852, and at
