Belt scale Milltronics WD600
Milltronics WD600 is a light-to medium-duty slider bed belt scale used for process and load-out control in manufacturing, including the food, chemical and tobacco industries.
WD600 works with an existing flat belt conveyor and the selected Siemens integrator. As material is moving along the conveyor belt and travels over the belt scale, it exerts a force proportional to the material load through the suspended weighbridge to the load cells.
WD600 reacts only to the vertical component of the applied force. The resulting movement in each load cell is sensed by its strain gauges. When the strain gauges are excited by voltage from the electronic integrator, they produce an electrical signal proportional to weight, which is then applied to the integrator.
The vertical movement of the load cells is limited by the positive overload stop incorporated into the design of the load cell mount.
