Bulk Solids Handling & Processing Innovations
“Connections that stand the test of time” isn’t just a slogan that encapsulates Ramsauer GmbH & Co KG, it’s also the company’s philosophy. Ramsauer is the Austrian market leader for sealants, adhesives, and PU foams, and they rely on Minebea Intec’s expertise to deliver raw materials and check pre-packaging.
After weighing the raw material tanks, dosing it into floor scales, mixing and filling, a sample check is carried out for the finished products.
Ramsauer GmbH & Co KG planned and developed a tank farm with engineering firm WK-Tech, which consists of eight 50m3 stainless steel tanks, as an integral part of the production system. At the bottom end of the tank system, it’s possible to fill up Raw material from lorries is unloaded and distributed to the respective tanks, at the top end of the system, raw materials are dosed into the dedicated mixing tanks, based on a formula from the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
One requirement of the raw material input process was to be able to compare the weight of all incoming quantities of raw material with the weight
accuracy and the marked hoses ensure that the conveyor lines never get mixed up in the process.
With regard to raw material sampling, it was crucial for the various raw materials to be dosed into the mixing tanks – to a specific formula. It was also necessary to be able to take samples at multiple stations simultaneously.
To meet these requirements, three-floor scales (CAAPS4- 3000RR-I) with a measuring accuracy of 0.1 kg were used to assist the control software in monitoring the dosing process.
specification on the order. The stocks in the ERP system are maintained based on this information. Depletion can be calculated accordingly.
In addition, the solution used should guarantee that no raw material is inadvertently conveyed into an incorrect tank during delivery. To ensure
“Minebea Intec’s precise weighing technology had already won us over, but using it in combination with the software SPC@Enterprise hugely surpassed our expectations. The whole package just worked wonders.”

The quantity actually sampled is logged during the process and then compared with the ERP system. This means that the quantity stated on the production order can be compared with the sampled quantity from the tank farm.
Even after the finished products have been filled up,
that this doesn’t occur, the plant manufacturer placed each of the tanks on three load cells (PR 6201/24D1) and introduced a hose system marked with barcodes. The tanks’ fill level can be measured at any time with the system’s 1 kg measuring
Ramsauer continues to rely on Minebea Intec products. The software SPC@Enterprise (PC logging) can be used to check the finished products on three lines using calibrated sampling scales, which then transmit the data to the ERP system.
Minebea Intec, formerly known as Sartorius Intec, provides products, solutions and services to the food industry for increasing the reliability, safety and efficiency of production and packaging lines.
