Yamato’s Tradition in Innovation: A Closer Look
Our company’s troubleshooting is essential to maximize uptime and efficiency: and it all begins with taking a closer look. Yamato’s design philosophy allows the operator or maintenance personnel to quickly and accurately diagnose issues, fix the problem, and get back into production as quickly as possible. Through the years, Yamato has made many an innovation, leading the industry forward. Next, take a look at just a few of our proudest software & technology innovations.
High-Speed Video Analysis
Transfer of product from weigher to packaging machine has its share of unknowns due to the tight proximity of instruments. Yamato pioneered ultra high-speed video to analyze scale and bagger geometries in order to optimize the entire system’s speed and efficiency.
Our video system allows our factory engineers to work with customers’ engineers to provide the best possible transfer of product leaving the scale and entering the bagger. In addition, Yamato’s video system allows engineers to view and analyze high-speed bagger functions in super-slow motion. Then, they are able to optimize programs and settings to achieve optimal output. Finally, the video and test results are recorded for further analysis by the packaging machine supplier and end-user.
Yamato Software & Technology Advancements
Yamato has long been recognized as the leader in advanced software & technology. Additionally, we provide increased speed & accuracy, higher efficiency, faster troubleshooting, easier diagnostics, faster error recovery, and maximized uptime. Read below for key technology advancements.
Advanced load Cell technology
Yamato is recognized worldwide as a leader in the science and application of load cells. In addition, our proprietary alloys, manufacturing processes, quality control, and software result in an extremely accurate and stable load cell that requires no complicated mechanisms to account for load cell drift.
Auto Programming and Counting
Using internal parameters, the Auto Program allows an operator to simply enter target weight and speed to create a completely new program for an application.
For those packages that are sold by piece count and weight, all Yamato weighers use optional Counting Software to select a combination that is both the correct count and, at the same time, the lowest weight. Additionally, our software also tracks average piece weight changes and makes internal calculation changes to optimize the accuracy and efficiency of the weigher.
Weight Selection Protocol
Yamato weighers use four different weight selection protocols, see below.
- First, we have no Underweights – the controller will not select a combination under the target weight.
- Next, it’s Tolerable Negative Error – the controller can select underweight based on strict statistical parameters.
- Then, we have a New Averaging System – the controller can select underweights based on parameters that also include the number of underweight chosen in sequences.
- Finally, it’s Maximum Allowable Variance – the controller can select underweights base on the USA Bureau of Standards regulations.
In conclusion, Yamato will continue to innovate and shape our industry. We invite you to visit our website for updates and to review our incredible parts & services. Finally, be sure to stay safe and keep your chin up: Yamato will be here and ready for your future!
