WEM4000 Series
Grinding

  • Maximize Throughput
  • Increase Energy Efficiency
  • Keep all ground grain bins full
  • Optimize Grinding Schedule
  • Eliminate waiting for ground or flaked materials

The WEM4000 automatic grinding and flaking controls keep material bins full and assures maximum electrical efficiency.

Scheduling of available automatic grinding or flaking operations will review current production needs and determine what material is to be used. This will assure a constant supply of raw materials to the batching process.

In both pre-grind and post-grind systems the grinding module keeps track of all run lot numbers. This assures automatic and accurate traceability in all areas of an operation.

The WEM exclusive unattended operation can include remote alarming. This feature will dial a remote telephone number to alert the operator or manager about an alarm situation. This will enable them to take action so continuing availability of ground or flaked material is assured.

WEM Automation LLC delivers the technology, software solutions and service to meet all your grinding and flaking needs.

PDA

The WEM PDA will communicate wirelessly to the WEM4000 Batching System, Hand adds System and to the Wonderware GUI. The WEM PDA batch alarm software enables an operator to accept or retry batch alarms, pause and resume production runs, plus hold and release scales and mixers.

The PDA can be used to acknowledge alarms, prompt for hand adds additions and is also able to display pelleting alarms. The PDA includes an audible sound on the PDA to indicate the presence of an alarm. The system is compatible with industrial and non-industrial wireless networks. The software program can be installed on a PDA running Windows CE 5.00 or higher.

WEM WhiteBoard

Every feed mill has a “white board” to show what materials are in the bins. Typically these are manually updated and are a potential source of errors that may cause cross contamination of ingredients or finished feed. Now the WEM white board will accurately display the materials and the amount for any bin. This can be displayed on any computer for instant access and maximum convenience. All displays are instantly refreshed and accurate within seconds of a bin change.

Key Performance Indicators

The Right Way To Run Your Feed Mill

  • Optimize your processes for performance, productivity and quality
  • Troubleshoot equipment that is under performing
  • Monitor your plant functions to assure continuing superior performance

WEM’s Key Performance Indicators module is the feed industry’s most advanced tool to help monitor and analyze plant performance. The comprehensive Library of Charts cover a wide range of key productivity, quality and performance measurements. The Key Performance Indicators application contains a “drill down” feature to find the root cause of a problem. This program reviews data from multiple aspects to gain appropriate insight into the factors affecting plant efficiency.
