Sterling Systems & Controls’ kitchen batching system is a semi-automatic ingredient batching system for the food industry, though it can be employed in many other industrial ingredient batching applications.
This multiple bin system requires operator involvement for the batching operation, but it is also automated in the control of operator actions and assures accurate weighments and batches. Operator interruptions will no longer be a problem, and that means no more missed ingredients. The kitchen batching system also improves speed and overall efficiency of the ingredient batching process over a manual process.
Included in a typical customized kitchen batching system are:
* Multiple ingredient bins/totes
* Stainless steel table(s)
* Moving weigh table with scale and touchscreen display
* PC control panel with weight instruments
Each kitchen batching system is customized to include the maximum number of bins required by the customer’s specific formulas. The kitchen system tables are sized to fit with the number of ingredient bins and for operator comfort. The tables are manufactured of stainless steel material, typically grade 304. The ingredient tables are of rugged construction and are designed to be stationary. The scale platform table is designed to smoothly travel between the two ingredient tables. The operator simply moves the scale platform table as needed to reach the next ingredient bins. The cabling from the scale and touchscreen display is mounted within a flexible cable carrier and is routed between the scale platform table and an adjacent ingredient table.
