Custom Hopper/Feeder Sizes & Configurations Available
Problem: A chemical supplier was experiencing high labor costs when filling containers by hand. The operator positioned 1 & 1.5-pound containers on a scale and scooped material into the containers, by hand, until the weight was reached.
Solution: A special MARTIN® E-Z™ Weigh System was developed. The operator now places the containers on the scale and pushes a foot switch. The scale logic tares the scale to zero and then activates the MARTIN® E-Z™ Feeder. When the scale is satisfied the feeder is stopped and the operator removes the filled container.
Result: Labor costs are reduced by 50%, spillage is greatly reduced as is the overfill of the containers.

Case Study: E-Z™ Auto Scoop Filling System Reduces Labor Costs & Increases Production
A leading Midwest supplier of aeration technologies and natural treatments to maintain ponds and lakes had a need to reduce labor cost and increase production on the containers they were filling. Currently they were using five people for months at a time during the busy season filling buckets by hand with a simple bench scale. Workers would scoop these products from 40-60 pound bulk containers and fill retail-size containers, typically taking about 1-2 Minutes per depending on size.
The MARTIN® E-Z™ Auto Scoop Filling System incorporates a precision digital scale with programmable logic and a high-performance vibratory feed system that assures fast and consistent flow of material. The system was developed for small to medium-sized packagers, but has proven capable of 750 fills per hour (depending on the material and package size), an average of more than a dozen per minute.
MVSS supplies both loss-in-weight feeders and volumetric feed/weigh systems. Customers find benefit in the company’s worldwide network of parts and service, and from the use of industry-standard components and non-proprietary software.
