Product category: Silos and accessories for the production of confectionery

Silo and discharge systems

AZO supplies silos and hoppers for storing and discharge of bulk goods. We work with painted mild steel and different kinds of aluminium and chrome-nickel steel. Accessories such as filters, level measuring systems and discharge systems round off the product range. Vibration bottoms have largely been accepted amongst discharge systems. If required, aeration bottoms (TURBO-KONUS) and aeration jets can be used as discharge aids.

AZO suction weighing systems for large and medium-sized components

Discharging, dosing, conveying, consolidation and weighing:
Many process steps – one system

Discharging, dosing, conveying, consolidation and weighing – AZO suction weighing systems are truly multitalented.
The principle works as follows: A container in the form of a conveyor scale is put under vacuum using vacuum pumps, ring compressors and/or rotary piston blowers. This vacuum proceeds through the conveying line up to the product intake. The individual
components are thus aspirated into the conveying line in a dust-free manner and transported to the conveyor scales. There the product is separated from the conveying air by filters. It remains in the weighing container, where it is accurately weighed.

More than 7,500 convincing arguments for suction weighing systems from the market leader!
Pneumatic suction weighing systems with conveyor scales are today widely accepted for the economic automation of precisely weighed large and medium-sized components. With more than 7,500 suction weighing systems installed, as the inventors of suction weighing technology we are not only the technological leader, but also the market leader for fully automatic mixer loading.

The result of this is a high level of experience with conveying characteristics and flow speeds for many different kinds of bulk materials and liquids which, in combination with innovative process leading control technology, we introduce all raw materials into your production processes at exactly the right time and in exactly the right quantity: Right to the point.

Your AZO advantages worldwide
• AZO is the market and technology leader for mixer feeding
• Reliability thanks to experience and fully developed technology
• High weighing and dosing accuracy
• Cleanliness during product intake
• Maximum flexibility
• Constant product quality
• Fast recipe change
• Accurate coordination of control and processing technology

Batch and Minor Quantity Automation from AZO®

Highly precise batch and minor quantity automation from the market leader
During the manufacture of food, pharmaceuticals, chemical and plastic products, precise adherence to the recipes is decisive for the product quality. As the producer, you must have absolute confidence in the exact supply of your raw materials. Each ingredient must be meticulously documented. 

With around 7,500 vacuum weighing systems already delivered, AZO has been Number One in mixer feeding of main components for quite some time. Over 650 installed systems, from ManDos through AZO COMPONENTER® in various designs and DosiBox® up to ShuttleDos® solutions, now also make AZO market leader in small and minor quantity automation throughout the world.  

Your advatages:
• Sustainable, economic solutions with high energy efficiency
• Safety thanks to experience and fully developed technology
• Great flexibility, meaning weighing various weights from 10 grams up to several 100 kilograms
• Variable design possible, simple to expand, easy to change recipes
• High precision for small and large weight units
• Minimised non-productive times, e.g. through process-optimised collection of components results in high speed
• Product and operator protection through contamination-free solutions
• User-friendly control and visualisation
• Reliable batch traceability and permanent documentation

Industry 4.0 – AZO's 4P model

AZO’s 4P model forms the basis for the group in overcoming the challenges of the Industrial Internet of Things. The 4P’s stand for the
four main objectives in the implementation strategy that should lead  to new business models in the AZO group.

P as in production at  AZO
The first P stands for AZO’s production, i.e. of plants and solutions.
Adopting the approaches from the Industrial Internet of Things is intended
• to help AZO improve efficiency and reliability in its engineering, project management and production and
• to introduce smart factory solutions into the production process at AZO.

P as in products from AZO
The second P represents AZO’s products. In the context of the Industrial Internet of Things, the group is pursuing a strategy of
• transforming their products into smart devices, redesigning networked plant components and
• enabling intelligent interplay of products in order to spur on vertical and horizontal integration in AZO plants.

P as in production at the customer’s
The third P represents production by AZO’s customers, which should be improved with the help of the Industrial Internet of Things. AZO contributes here with:
• smart products that optimise production processes at particular points;
• horizontal integration of smart products throughout the production process, which simplifies customer processes, thereby cutting production costs;
• integrated solutions, which allow batch tracing through the entire value-creation process;
• vertical integration, which connects the production plants to the customer's business level. This means customers can now respond faster to new orders; their production becomes more flexible.

P as in products from the customer
AZO also wants to help achieve lasting improvements to its customers' products, the fourth P in its 4P model, using the approaches from the Industrial Internet of Things. The targets are:
• transparent, traceable customer products, made possible by smart production with integrated batch tracing and
• high-quality customer products from economical production thanks to an optimum manufacturing process.
