COTSWOLD MECHANICAL LTD
Basic Overview:
Cotswold Mechanical’s entire range of weighing machines have the same basic mode of operation and whilst the format,
style, size and specification may differ to suit different products, weights and speed requirements basic principles are valid
throughout.
1. Product is placed into a holding hopper and is then fed automatically, at a fast speed, into a pan that is attached to
a weighing mechanism until the target weight is almost reached at which point the feed rate slows to a trickle. On
achieving the required weight feed stops altogether and, after checking that the weight is correct, the weighed
product is released into a waiting container.
2. The product infeed hopper normally has adjustable gates to regulate the depth of product allowed out on to the
feed system
3. The feed system normally comprises a series of vibratory feeders (sometimes referred to as feed trays)
4. There are normally two vibratory feeders; one to take the bulk product out of the hopper (bulk or primary tray)
and one to feed the product under strict control into the weighpan (fine or secondary tray). The exception to this is
the CMW2000 which only uses one vibratory feed tray.
5. At the outfeed end of the feed system there are normally some “gates”. These are designed to assist in the precise
feed of the product. In the case of the bulk gate, this closes to shut off the bulk feed tray when “fine” feed is taking
place. Similarly, the fine feed gate closes when the correct weight is in the weighpan making sure that no further
product is allowed in, thus minimizing the possibility of over-weights being produced. Again, the CMW2000 is an
exception, only using one gate. This acts to shut off the bulk flow of product. Fine feed of product is achieved by
product ‘spilling’ around the shut bulk gate, and the feed tray running at low speed.
6. The type and design of feed system is determined by the characteristics of the product to be handled.
7. A suitable receptacle is placed beneath the Outlet Chute of the machine – usually specified by the machine
operator. When the correct signal is given, (usually via an operator footswitch or ancillary piece of equipment such
as a vertical form fill and seal bagmaker), weighed product is discharged down the Outlet Chute and into the waiting
container.
8. The weighing function of the machine is performed by a precision weighing mechanism (normally a loadcell)
9. The gating system is located above a chute that transfers the product into the container to be filled. These outlet
chutes are designed to suit the application and may be fitted with different size and style of extensions to adapt them
to various sizes and styles of packaging.
10. All aspects of the machine operation including, target, bulk and fine weights, the speed (amplitude) of the
vibratory feeders, the frequency of the auto-tare facility etc. are all set and held in the “Product Code Memory” of
the control system - along with all other information necessary for the correct operation of the machine.
11. Once the correct settings for a particular product and weight combination have been determined they can be
retained in the control system memory and simply recalled the next time they are required to be used.

COTSWOLD MECHANICAL LTD
Hints on Successful Operation:
THE SECRET OF ACCURATE AUTOMATIC WEIGHING IS IN OBTAINING A CORRECT AND
RELIABLE PRODUCT FEED INTO THE BOX OR CONTAINER.
1. The amount of product on the bulk (primary) tray is determined by:
i) The position of the adjustable sliding gate on the front of the hopper.
The correct position of this gate is determined by:
a) The type of product being handled
b) The throughput and depth of product deemed necessary
2. The level of product on the fine (secondary) tray is determined by:
i) The position of the adjustable sliding gate on the front of the hopper.
The correct position of this gate is determined by:
a) The type of product being handled
b) The throughput and depth of product deemed necessary
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO HAVE A SMALL - BUT SUFFICIENT – FINE FEED.
3. If there is none, or it is too little, invariably over-weights will be produced.
i) If it is too long product may build up behind the bulk gate resulting in
erratic weights (correct weight followed by an overweight etc.)
FINE FEED TOO SHORT - DECREASE the BULK WEIGHT SETPOINT
FINE FEED TOO LONG - INCREASE the BULK WEIGHT SETPOINT
4. It is important that the depth and speed of movement of the product are in keeping with the weight being made
and the accuracy required. In general the higher the target weight and the smaller the product piece size the greater
the depth of product and the faster the movement can be.
It is impossible to give exact advice on actual settings, they will only be determined by running the actual product
through the machine and by using trial and error along with experience gained in the best method of operation for
your own particular products and requirements.

Hints on Successful Operation: (Continued)
Before starting the machine:
Set the desired Target weight (Example 1000g)
Set the Fine set point to equal the Target Weight (Example 1000g)
Set the Bulk set point to Target Weight minus 10% (Example 900g)
Set the Fine vibrator fast speed to 50% and the slow speed to 40%
Set the Bulk vibrator fast speed to 40%
Switch the machine in to run mode.
Place a small amount of product in to the Fine vibrator tray; check the product is transferred along the vibrator
with a smooth and consistent flow rate.
If the transfer of product is too slow or too fast adjust the Fine vibrator fast and slow speeds accordingly.
Place a small amount of product in to the Bulk vibrator tray; check the product is transferred along the vibrator
with a smooth and consistent flow rate.
If the transfer of product is too slow or too fast adjust the Bulk vibrator fast speed accordingly.
Stop the machine
Close the hopper slide gate, and then fill the hopper with product.
Now open the hopper slide gate, only a sufficient amount to allow the product to flow from the gate. Re-start the
machine.
Bulk Cut-off Weight---range 0 – target weight
Enter the weight at which the vibrators will switch from fast to slow feeding.
Fine Cut-off Weight--------range 0 – target weight
Enter the weight at which the vibrators will stop feeding and the weigher start to settle.
Use the COPY button to copy the entered settings to all weighers.

COTSWOLD MECHANICAL LTD
Machine Overview – 3:
Description:
A single lane automatic linear weighing machine which utilises the highest quality components and materials and
combines a precision loadcell weighing mechanism with the latest electronic technology.
Weight Range:
0.5kg upto 2.0kg, although versions may vary. Applications are also dependent on the product bulk density.
Capacity:
Upto 4.5 litres per weighment depending on application - versions may vary
Function:
The machine utilises a hopper system that is filled with the product to be weighed. By means of a vibrating tray, product is
fed in a controlled manner to the weigh-pan assembly. A pneumatically actuated gate ensures that the weigh-pan is filled to
the correct target weight with no excess product overspill. The product weights are continuously monitored by the electronic
controls, and once the target weight has been achieved, the weigh-pan pneumatically discharges the weighed product upon
receipt of an electronic volt free signal. This is usually done via an operator footswitch, or is given by an ancillary piece of
equipment such as a vertical form fill and seal bag-maker. Alternatively, the machine can give an output volt free signal to
indicate that a weight is complete and ready for discharge. As the weigh-pan discharges, the product falls down a chute that is
usually custom made to suit an individual application. This ensures that the weighed product falls into a suitable receptacle
placed or positioned beneath the outlet chute.

Note: Some Hoppers are
fitted with various sound
deadening panels as an
optional extra to dampen
product noise when product
enters the hopper. These
panels are permanently
adhered and sealed to the
Hopper. Under no
circumstances should they
be removed.
The Product Hopper is usually custom designed to suit the individual product requirements. It is normally mounted
by means of four bolts into the top of the machine frame. Product feed from the hopper is controlled via a hopper feed control
gate. The volume and depth of product that exits the hopper can be adjusted by loosening the hand-wheel then raising or
lowering the hopper slide gate and re-tightening the hand-wheel once the correct level has been achieved. Normally this is set
to the minimum gap that will allow the product to flow freely from the hopper.
Due to the fact that the Hopper is bolted to the machine frame, it is normally cleaned in position and not intended
for removal.

Vibratory Feed System:
Feed Tray
V1 Vibrator Unit
The Vibratory Feed System:
The system comprises a vibratory feed tray mounted on an electromagnetic vibrator. During normal operation, the
tray transfers product in a controlled fashion from the product hopper to the weighpan via a pneumatically controlled bulk
gate. The tray has two product feed speeds; fast or bulk speed and slow or fine speed. Typically, when a new weighment of
product is to be made, the tray operates at fast speed so that the majority of product enters the weighpan in the shortest
possible time. As the weighment approaches the target weight, the feed tray switches to the slow or fine feed to fill up the
weighpan with the last minority of product required to achieve the target weight.
The Feed Tray is manufactured from high grade 304 food quality stainless steel and is permanently attached to the
vibrator unit. The Tray will easily withstand cleaning with most food standards approved cleaning agents.

Vibratory Feed System: (Continued)
Method Of Adjustment:
(See CMWControl Instruction Manual, Product Feed Section 3.4 )
Each Vibrator has two speed settings, fast and Slow speeds.
Each speed is digitally set within the Product Code Menu, values 0-100%
Fast Speed:
This speed settings is used to when feeding the majority (Bulk) of the product through the feed system and in to the Weighing
system.
Normally the Primary Vibrator, this will allow thinning of the level of product as it progresses through the system.
Example: Primary fast speed = 45%.
The Fast Speeds continue to be used until the “Bulk” set point is achieved.
Slow Speed:
This speed settings is used to when feeding the final (Fine) or top up of the product to achieve the desired target weight.
.
Example: Primary slow speed = 40%
The Slow Speeds continue to be used until the “Fine” set point is achieved.
The “Fine” set point is normally set to slightly below the desired target weight, this allows for product in flight.
If the “Fine” set point value is set low the system will stop early and the target weight will not be achieved. The feed system
will then begin to top up, again using the slow speed settings.

Over a period of time, the performance of the V1 Vibratory feed unit may diminish. This is usually after a period of
eight months or more and is more noticeable on weighing applications requiring high vibration speed and amplitude to move
the product. Leaving the vibrator running at full load speed when the machine is empty or during a wash down can also
exacerbate the condition.
Tuning is a relatively simple process and basically involves selecting the correct combination of fiberglass springs to
replace those already on the unit. The springs are supplied in three varying thicknesses; 7, 9 and 11 ply. The object of
successful tuning is two fold:
1. To obtain approximately 4.5mm – 5.0mm of displacement / movement on the top plate of the vibrator unit WHEN A
TRAY IS BOLTED IN POSITION and the unit is running at 100%.
2. To obtain good linear vibration range. This is determined by reducing the vibrator speed in the machine controls in
intervals of 10% from the full load speed of 100%. If the speed of the vibrator experiences a larger than 10% decrease in
speed when a 10% speed reduction is inputted via the machine controls, the vibration range is deemed as bad. However, often
there is little vibration below 40% and these low end values are largely ignored.
The procedure for tuning the vibrator units are as follows

Step 1.
Assemble the vibrator springs in two separate assemblies as shown in Fig. 2 using two 11 ply springs in each position. Make
sure that all the bolts are tight! Bolts that are not properly tightened will result in false linear vibration range readings later.
Step 2.
Make sure that the product feed tray is bolted into position on the vibrator unit. Set the vibrator speed in the machine
control parameters to 100% and switch the system into test mode. Make a note of the current vibrator amplitude. This is best
achieved by holding a steel rule as close to the feed tray as possible and measuring the ‘ghost’ profile created by the
movement of the tray (see Fig. 3).
Note: Some vibrating trays are fitted with
a vibration motion label (see below)
which will indicate clearly how much tray
displacement occurs. It completely
negates the need to use a rule to measure
the tray movement. As the label vibrates
with the tray, the
two diagonal lines
will appear to
converge. The point
of convergence can
be read off the scale,
indicating precise
tray displacement.

Vibratory Feed System: Vibrator Tuning (Continued)
Step 3.
If the amplitude of the tray measures approximately 4.5mm to 5.0mm, then proceed to step 7 to ensure good linear
vibration range.
Step 4.
If the amplitude of the tray measures less than 4.5mm to 5.0mm, loosen one of the lower vibrator spring M8 bolts. It
is important to loosen the bolt as the vibrator unit is running. As the bolt is loosened, a change in amplitude should be easily
detected. If no change is discernable, gradually loosen a second bolt.
Step 5.
If the tray amplitude increased when the bolts were slackened, then the vibrator springs are too stiff. The overall
spring thickness needs to be decreased by either removing / changing the spring thickness combinations. If the tray amplitude
decreased when the bolts were slackened, then the vibrator springs are too weak and the overall spring thickness needs to be
increased, again by adding / changing the spring combinations.
Step 6.
Vibrator springs are available in three thicknesses; 7, 9 & 11 ply. Adding or replacing springs should take place one
at a time. When a spring combination has been altered, check that the M8 retaining bolts are tight and repeat the amplitude
measurement test again (return to step 2) as many times as necessary until the correct amplitude is achieved.
Step 7.
Once the correct amplitude has been achieved, reduce the vibrator load speed in increments of 10% in the machine
controls. If the speed of the vibrator experiences a larger than 10% decrease in speed when a 10% speed reduction is inputted
via the machine controls, the vibration range needs altering. This is achieved by altering the combination of springs used to
that of a slightly thinner combination i.e. remove one 11 ply spring and add two 7 ply or one 7 and one 9 ply. Essentially,
having previously achieved good amplitude of vibration, the vibrator is now being restricted or de-tuned in its overall
performance in order to gain good linear range of control. Overall tray speed is therefore, a trade off over good linear range of
control. Be aware that below 40% load speed on the controls usually results in little or no vibration so generally, these low
end results are largely ignored.
The extent to which a vibrator unit is tuned is largely dependent on the flow characteristics of the product. For
instance, an awkward product such as diced lettuce, requires a high / fast amplitude. In such a case, it is not so important that
the vibrator exhibits good vibration range. However, a free flowing granular product such as grass seed requires little
vibration to start it moving along the tray. We would therefore suggest, that a high / fast amplitude is not that important. Good
range of control however, is. It is important that these characteristics are duly taken into consideration when tuning.
Note: The two sets of lower mounting springs are not intended to be interchanged. For the purposes of
vibrator tuning, only the upper motion springs are meant for replacement and it is only the upper
motion springs that have a direct effect on vibrator performance.

The Gating System consists of a pneumatically operated Bulk gate. It is located beneath the Loadcell Box Assembly.
The gate opens at the start of the weighing cycle. The Bulk gate closes when the Bulk set point is reached, effectively
reducing the amount of product able to feed into the weigh pan by approximately eighty per cent. The product continues to
feed at slow speed, spilling past the now closed Bulk Gate, until the fine set point is reached. If the weight of product in the
weigh-pan is less than the target (minimum weight system) or less than the under weight tolerance (Average weight system),
then the product feed will resume (at slow speed) until the target weight is achieved.
The Gating system is Factory set and will not normally require any adjustments.
The entire Gating Assembly is permanently located on the machine main frame and is not intended for removal for
cleaning.
IMPORTANT: The air supply must first be switched off and the air supply pipes to the pneumatic cylinder actuators
disconnected by a suitably qualified person before any maintenance can take place.
The illustration immediately left shows a typical
speed controller as found on the pneumatic cylinder.
By winding the adjustment screw in or out will
accelerate or decelerate the speed at which the bulk
gate opens and closes. It is important to tighten the
locking screw once the correct position of the
adjusting screw has been ascertained. To remove the
air pipe from the speed controller, first depress the
quick release collar, and then pull the pipe free
(disconnect air supply first).

The Load-cell Top Box Assembly, houses a precision load-cell mechanism. The load-cell is a precision
electronic weighing instrument and provides all the fundamental weight signals to the machine controls. It incorporates an
integral overload facility that helps to avoid accidental damage due to excessive loading. The overload system is factory set,
but may require future adjustment. This is largely dependent on the loading exerted on the weighpan and should only be
adjusted by an Trained Engineer. The overload system will not protect against shock loading, therefore the Load-cell unit
should be treated with care. The Load-cell is a sealed unit; no user adjustments are required for the Load-cell Mechanism.
Always ensure that prior to moving the machine, the Weighpan Assembly is removed from the
Hanger Plates. Failure to do so can result in shock loading on the load-cell component which
will severely impair the machines performance.

The Weighpan Assembly is a pneumatically operated storage container; it is attached to a precision load-cell
weighing system via two weighpan hanger plates. These facilitate quick release of the weighpan for cleaning purposes.
Removal of the pan should only commence once appropriately qualified personnel have isolated the air supply to the
machine. Before removal of the Weighpans, the air supply pipes must also be disconnected from the pneumatic cylinders.
This is achieved by pressing the release collar on the pneumatic speed controller fitting, and pulling the air pipe out (see
illustration below). To re-assemble, simply push the air pipe firmly back into the fitting. Care should be taken when removing
the weighpan for cleaning that no liquid gets into the pneumatic fitting as water ingress can seriously damage the pneumatic
cylinders. For cleaning purposes, it is advisable to ‘blank off’ the ‘air in’ aperture left when the air supply pipes are removed.
The weigh-pan is filled with product to the correct weight, via the vibratory feed trays and gating system. The
product is held in the weigh-pan until an external discharge input is received, at this point the pneumatic cylinder opens the
two weigh-pan lids, discharging the weighed product. The Weigh-pan is factory set and normally requires no further
adjustment.

1.0 INTRODUCTION
This manual has been compiled to assist the machinery manufacturer in the basic operation of the CMW
Control System .
The controller utilises a backlit high contrast LCD display and operator keypad to enable the display and
modification of all areas of the linear weigher operation.
The weighing characteristics of up to 100 different products can be pre-set into the product library and
then products may be called up for use by either their name or optional product code.
The unit is easily cleaned, being housed with a stainless steel enclosure, sealed to the IP65 standard.
The controller can be configured to control one or two weighers and up to four vibrators. Depending
upon the configuration of your machine, not all options shown in this manual may be accessible or
appear on the screen layouts.

Getting Started – Setup:
The V1 Vibrator Unit is generally intended, but not exclusively, to be used in conjunction with the
Cotswold CMW Controls Unit. This set of controls is then used to govern the primary functions of the V1 Vibrator
Unit such as speed, amplitude and run times. For further information, see ‘CMW
Controls Manual’.
Connection of the three core power supply lead from the V1
Vibrator Unit should only be carried out by a suitably qualified
electrician! Ensure that all power to any equipment being worked
on has been switched off and fully isolated.
Fig. 5.
CMW
Controls
Getting Started – Vibrator Tuning:
The V1 Vibrator Unit will have been tuned prior to leaving the factory and should not require adjustment. However,
over a period of time, the performance of the Vibratory V2 feed unit may diminish. This is usually after a period of eight
months or more and is more noticeable on applications requiring high vibration speed and amplitude to move the product.
Leaving the vibrators running at full load speed when a machine is empty or during a wash down can also exacerbate the
condition.
Tuning is a relatively simple process and basically involves selecting the correct combination of fiberglass springs to
replace those already on the unit. The springs are supplied in three varying thicknesses; 7, 9 and 11 ply. The object of
successful tuning is twofold:
1. To obtain approximately 4.5mm – 5.0mm of displacement / movement on the top plate of the vibrator unit WHEN A
TRAY IS LATCHED IN POSITION and the unit is running at 100%.
2. To obtain good linear vibration range. This is determined by reducing the vibrator speed in the machine controls in
intervals of 10% from the full load speed of 100%. If the speed of the vibrator experiences a larger than 10% decrease in
speed when a 10% speed reduction is inputted via the machine controls, the vibration range is deemed as bad. However, often
there is little vibration below 40% and these low end values are largely ignored.
The procedure for tuning the vibrator units are as follows:
Step 1.
Assemble the vibrator springs as a separate
assembly as shown in Fig. 6 using three 11 ply
springs in each position. Make sure that all the
bolts are tightened wherever possible, with a
torque wrench set at 40N.m (29.5 lbf.ft) as shown
in fig. 7. Bolts that are not properly tightened will
result in false linear vibration range readings
later.

3/8” square drive torque
wrench – set at 40N.m
(29.5lbf.ft).
Step 2.
Set the correct gap between the armature
and the coil. This gap is 6mm, typically the
thickness of an 11 & 9 ply spring combined. Air
gap adjustment is achieved by slackening the two
bolts per coil (see fig. 4) on the underside of the
base plate. Once loose, the coil can be moved
backwards or forwards until a snug fit is achieved
with the 11 & 9 ply spring wedged between the
coil and the armature (see Fig. 8).
Step 2. (Continued)
Once the correct air gap has been set up, the
retaining bolts on the underside of the base plate should
be fully tightened
Step 3.
Make sure that the product feed tray is latched /
bolted into position on the vibrator unit. Set the vibrator
speed in the machine control parameters to 100% and switch
the system into test mode. Make a note of the current
vibrator amplitude. This is best achieved by holding a steel
rule as close to the feed tray as possible and measuring the
‘ghost’ profile created by the movement of the tray (see Fig.
9).
Fig. 8.
V1 Vibrator Unit with 11 & 9 ply springs wedged
between coil & armature to create 6mm air gap
Note: Some vibrating trays are fitted with a
vibration motion label (see below) which will
indicate clearly how much tray displacement
occurs. It completely negates the need to use
a rule to measure the tray movement.
As the label vibrates with the
tray, the two diagonal lines will
appear to converge. The point of
convergence can be read off the
scale, indicating precise tray
displacement.

COTSWOLD MECHANICAL LTD
Getting Started – Vibrator Tuning (continued):
Step 4.
If the amplitude of the tray measures approximately 4.5mm to 5.0mm, then proceed to step 8 to ensure good linear
vibration range.
Step 5.
If the amplitude of the tray measures less than 4.5mm to 5.0mm, loosen one of the lower vibrator spring M8 bolts. It
is important to loosen the bolt as the vibrator unit is running. As the bolt is loosened, a change in amplitude should be easily
detected. If no change is discernable, gradually loosen a second bolt.
Step 6.
If the tray amplitude increased when the bolts were slackened, then the vibrator springs are too stiff. The overall
spring thickness needs to be decreased by either removing / changing the spring thickness combinations. If the tray amplitude
decreased when the bolts were slackened, then the vibrator springs are too weak and the overall spring thickness needs to be
increased, again by adding / changing the spring combinations.
Step 7.
Vibrator springs are available in three thicknesses; 7, 9 & 11 ply. Adding or replacing springs should take place one
at a time. When a spring combination has been altered, check that the M8 retaining bolts are correctly tightened and repeat the
amplitude measurement test again (return to step 3) as many times as necessary until the correct amplitude is achieved.
Step 8.
Once the correct amplitude has been achieved, reduce the vibrator load speed in increments of 10% in the machine
controls. If the speed of the vibrator experiences a larger than 10% decrease in speed when a 10% speed reduction is inputted
via the machine controls, the vibration range needs altering. This is achieved by altering the combination of springs used to
that of a slightly thinner combination i.e. remove one 11 ply spring and add two 7 ply or one 7 and one 9 ply. Essentially,
having previously achieved good amplitude of vibration, the vibrator is now being restricted or de-tuned in its overall
performance in order to gain good linear range of control. Overall tray speed is therefore, a trade off over good linear range of
control. Be aware that below 40% load speed on the controls usually results in little or no vibration so generally, these low
end results are largely ignored.
The extent to which a vibrator unit is tuned is largely dependent on the flow characteristics of the product. For
instance, an awkward product such as diced lettuce, requires a high / fast amplitude. In such a case, it is not so important that
the vibrator exhibits good vibration range. However, a free flowing granular product such as grass seed requires little
vibration to start it moving along the tray. We would therefore suggest, that a high / fast amplitude is not that important. Good
range of control however, is. It is important that these characteristics are duly taken into consideration when tuning.

Typical V2 Vibrator Unit with Spring
Assemblies bolted in position
Step 1.
Assemble the vibrator springs in four separate
assemblies as shown in Fig. 11 using three 11 ply
springs in each position. Make sure that all the
bolts are tight! Bolts that are not properly tightened
will result in false linear vibration range readings
later.
Step 2.
Set the correct gap between the armatures
and the coils in two places. This gap is 6mm,
typically the thickness of an 11 & 9 ply spring
combined. Air gap adjustment is achieved by
slackening the two bolts per coil on the underside
of the base plate. Once loose, the coils can be
moved backwards or forwards until a snug fit is
achieved with the 11 & 9 ply spring wedged
between the coil and the armature (see Fig. 13).

Step 2. (Continued)
Once the correct air gap has been set up, the
retaining bolts on the underside of the base plate should
be fully tightened

V2 Vibrator :: Vibrator Tuning (Continued)
Step 3.
Make sure that the product feed tray is latched / bolted into position on the vibrator unit. Set the
vibrator speed in the machine control parameters to 100% and switch the system into test mode. Make a
note of the current vibrator amplitude. This is best achieved by holding a steel rule as close to the feed
tray as possible and measuring the ‘ghost’ profile created by the movement of the tray (see Fig. 14).
Note: Some vibrating trays are fitted
with a vibration motion label (see
below) which will indicate clearly
how much tray displacement occurs.
It completely negates the need to use
a rule to measure the tray movement.
As the label vibrates
with the tray, the two
diagonal lines will
appear to converge.
The point of
convergence can be
read off the scale,
indicating precise tray
displacement.
Fig. 14.

measure tray displacement left by ‘ghost’ image of tray
when vibrating.
Step 4.
If the amplitude of the tray measures approximately 4.5mm to 5.0mm, then proceed to step 8 to
ensure good linear vibration range.
Step 5.
If the amplitude of the tray measures less than 4.5mm to 5.0mm, loosen one of the lower vibrator
spring M10 bolts. It is important to loosen the bolt as the vibrator unit is running. As the bolt is loosened,
a change in amplitude should be easily detected. If no change is discernable, gradually loosen a second
bolt.

V2 Vibrator :: Vibrator Tuning (Continued)
Step 6.
If the tray amplitude increased when the bolts were slackened, then the vibrator springs are too
stiff. The overall spring thickness needs to be decreased by either removing / changing the spring
thickness combinations. If the tray amplitude decreased when the bolts were slackened, then the vibrator
springs are too weak and the overall spring thickness needs to be increased, again by adding / changing
the spring combinations.
Step 7.
Vibrator springs are available in three thicknesses; 7, 9 & 11 ply. Adding or replacing springs
should take place one at a time. When a spring combination has been altered, check that the M10
retaining bolts are tight and repeat the amplitude measurement test again (return to step 3) as many times
as necessary until the correct amplitude is achieved.
Step 8.
Once the correct amplitude has been achieved, reduce the vibrator load speed in increments of
10% in the machine controls. If the speed of the vibrator experiences a larger than 10% decrease in
speed when a 10% speed reduction is inputted via the machine controls, the vibration range needs
altering. This is achieved by altering the combination of springs used to that of a slightly thinner
combination i.e. remove one 11 ply spring and add two 7 ply or one 7 and one 9 ply. Essentially, having
previously achieved good amplitude of vibration, the vibrator is now being restricted or de-tuned in its
overall performance in order to gain good linear range of control. Overall tray speed is therefore, a trade
off over good linear range of control. Be aware that below 40% load speed on the controls usually results
in little or no vibration so generally, these low end results are largely ignored.
The extent to which a vibrator unit is tuned is largely dependent on the flow characteristics of the
product. For instance, an awkward product such as diced lettuce, requires a high / fast amplitude. In such
a case, it is not so important that the vibrator exhibits good vibration range. However, a free flowing
granular product such as grass seed requires little vibration to start it moving along the tray. We would
therefore suggest, that a high / fast amplitude is not that important. Good range of control however, is. It
is important that these characteristics are duly taken into consideration when tuning.

Cleaning Schedule:
The weighing system is designed such that most of the component parts that come into contact with the product can
easily be removed for cleaning purposes. This includes: Hopper, Feed Trays Weighpan, Rise & Fall Chutes & Outlet Chute.
BEFORE REMOVAL OF THESE COMPONENT PARTS CAN COMMENCE, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT BOTH THE AIR
SUPPLY & THE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY TO THE MACHINE BE ISOLATED BY AN APPROPRIATLEY QUALIFIED
PERSON.
All the contact parts are manufactured from grade 304 or 316 stainless steel and will easily withstand
cleaning with most food industry approved sanitary cleaning fluid.
It is recommended that the machine is stripped down and cleaned at least once per eight hour shift. It is
also essential that cleaning take place when there is a change of product to be run through the machine. During
any clean down procedure, it is vital to ensure the cleansing of the entire machine and not just the removable
contact parts.
The entire range of weighing machines have the same basic mode of operation and whilst the format,
style, size and specification may differ to suit different applications.
All contact parts, once removed can be washed and sanitized and then dried before re-assembly.
Contact parts removal procedure for cleaning is generally as follows:

6. Remove any Ancillary Equipment (If fitted). This usually comprises Rise and Fall Funnels or Product Diverting Chutes.
Release over centre latches (where fitted) and remove each assembly. If latches are not fitted, the chute or funnel is usually
cleaned in its normal working position, but can be un-bolted for complete removal. Fig. 6 shows a typical example of a rise &
fall funnel. Obviously, there are a great number of funnel variations as these are designed and built to match specific
applications.

As a precautionary measure, it is also a good idea to cover the CMW Controls with a waterproof hood, ensuring that the
opening is tied securely once the hood is in place. This will offer a greater measure of protection from liquid ingress into the
controls box.
Exact cleaning schedules however, are usually determined by the end user and are largely dependent on the characteristics of
the product to be weighed and the end user’s operational procedures.
