The Gericke GUC-F universal feeder controller allows additional feeding capacity to be installed to meet increased or changing production demands, without purchasing additional individual controllers for each feeder.
Devised to future-proof against sudden demand spikes and provide flexibility to accommodate frequent recipe changes, the universal feeder controller instrumentation automates control over weighing, dosing, and feeding from up to four feeders on up to four different processing lines from a single HMI screen. Accurate weighing and precise powder feeding are assured in a streamlined production operating with reduced equipment, labor, and maintenance costs.
Developed for food, pharmaceutical, and other powder and bulk material feeding processes, the Gericke GUC-F is delivered preconfigured based on the type of feeder or feeders, required modes of operation, and use of frequency converters for easy installation and fast setup. Potential software updates, upgrades, and expanded capabilities may be provided over-the-air by Gericke for seamless, secure integration. The automated feeder control system may be installed with new feeders or retrofit onto existing Gericke feeders.
