TopControl's complete solution permits a smooth, uncomplicated packaging process that allows Zeiler Greenland to bring herbs and salads fresh to the supermarkets - 365 days a year
365 days a year fresh salad and flavourful herbs - the Austrian company Zeiler Greenland does just that. "The forgotten varieties of herbs and salads should be available in a consistent quality for each customer in the supermarket around the corner throughout the year," is the credo of CEO Christian Zeiler. In order to make this possible, Zeiler Greenland relies on TopControl’s technology for its packaging.
With the picking scales RSC9100, checkweigher and automatic belt scale ST-A500, TopControl has supplied the ideal hardware for the packaging process. To ensure that Zeiler always has the perfect overview of the entire process, the hardware has been combined with the software StatisticsWeights for production data collection, production analysis and productivity evaluation.
TopControl's RSC9100 has been designed to portion units using the principle of picking out from a total amount of goods. The pre-set quantity of herbs is manually removed from the box on the scale and filled into small packages. An intuitive LED bar on the touch display helps the operator to portion quickly and accurately to the gram. This reduces giveaway to a minimum and increases productivity. Personnel time recording is carried out simply by registering the employees on a transponder reader integrated in the balance. Integrated into the WLAN or Ethernet network, each station transmits the weight data and personnel time to the central TopControl software SatisticsWeights.
The checkweigher which weighs reliably each package and automatically sorts out if the weight is incorrect is responsible for a final check of the packages. Before the herbs and salads are delivered, the scale ST-A 500, which is also part of the overall solution, is used. It fulfils all requirements for levelling carton packaging in a simple, quick and cost-efficient manner and is particularly flexible. No matter where it is used, its user-friendliness is convincing. The integrated scanner reads barcodes and records the weight and box number. The entire data of the ST-A 500 is also centrally collected and processed by StatisticsWeights.
