Rubber Industry: Minor Ingredient Batching System


Sterling Systems & Controls was approached by a hose manufacturer grappling with inefficiencies in their manual batching and weighing of powder ingredients crucial for their rubber products. Seeking a tailored solution to enhance production processes, they turned to Sterling, known for its expertise in custom engineering and manufacturing of weighing systems and automation.

The challenge was multifaceted: the manual batching process was costly, generating scrap and posing dust hazards. To optimize production, quick and accurate ingredient batching was imperative, alongside increased production capacity. Sterling’s solution aimed not only to automate material feeding and weighing but also to semi-automate the “hand add” or manually fed materials, ensuring batch accuracy and validation while containing and collecting dust associated with ingredient handling.
