Hottinger Brüel and Kjær has launched its latest innovation in weighing—the FIT5X digital load cell for filling/dosing machines—which is designed to revolutionize packaging process control.

FIT5X surpasses the limitations of legacy single-point or analogue load cells. The digital load cell merges a sophisticated filling/dosing algorithm with a control weighing function, providing the benefits of advanced automation and increased precision in the filling process.

Thanks to its digital inputs and outputs, FIT5X provides intelligent interaction with triggers and actuators such as valves, enabling superior automated process control. This feature allows manufacturers to optimize operations, improve the consistency of finished products, and ensure maximum yield from their rotary filling/dosing machines.

An evolution of the well-regarded FIT5A, the FIT5X brings crucial additional advantages. Its hermetically sealed construction, even in the sensing area, eliminates risks associated with external exposure, minimizing contamination risk and avoiding zero-point or linearity issues.

The FIT5X design is also simple and reliable. The absence of externally exposed complex mechanical structures significantly reduces the risk of error related to contaminant accumulation, ensuring consistent quality of finished products and extending the operational life of the machine.

In the context of Industry 4.0, FIT5X stands out as a solution for manufacturers looking to stay at the forefront of innovation. Its seamless integration with digital technologies, combined with its advanced features, positions manufacturers to meet changing market demands.

FIT5X is more than just a load cell. The digital load cell redefines the standards of industrial weighing with its proven technology for rotary filling machines; mature filling algorithm with specialized functions; hermetically sealed construction eliminating any risk of contaminants; and free PanelX software for in-depth analysis, precise adjustment, and optimal process control.
