Fourteen new weigh feeders for Sloten BV

On 23 January 2008, the new weigh feeder system for Sloten B.V. became operational. Fourteen new weigh feeders with modern transport systems have been engineered in the Sloten plant in Deventer, the Netherlands.

Several Siemens techniques are integrated in the entire control system. This results in a fully vertical and horizontal data transparent system, including a direct interface with the Sloten ERP environment. The new system will bring Sloten an improved efficiency of its production process, more flexibility and an extended capacity.

Eight months
The overall engineering took place over a period of eight months. Last week the plant was shut down for only seven days, to enable 40 engineers and technicians to do the last fine tuning and testing. Now the reconstruction has been finalized. The production of Sloten is already fully back in business.

With this new system, a platform has been created for further production automation expanding. Sloten invests in its productive capacity in order to meet the worldwide growing demand.
