Since the genesis of solid-state relays some decades ago, the argument about which is better, solid-state relays (SSRs) or electromechanical relays (EMRs), has raged on. The answer is neither, as each relay type has positive and negative aspects. But if you factor in specific application requirements, clear winners emerge.
Doran’s new Selecta in-motion checkweigher provides high speed checkweighing and valuable production floor data at an affordable cost.
According to Mark Podl, CEO of Doran Scales, “The Selecta was designed to achieve four common goals – minimize costly downtime, maximize productivity, achieve fast ROI, and provide plant floor reporting. This new weighing system is the result of our company’s four decades of experience building scales to be used in the harshest environments.”
Doran Scales, Inc. will demonstrate its award-winning innovations at the upcoming 2016 International Baking Industry Expo (IBIE). Held October 8–11, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, IBIE is the largest and most comprehensive event for the food industry.
“The size and scope of IBIE will allow us to touch every segment of the food industry,” said Mark Podl, CEO of Doran Scales. “We will be able to interact with over 20,000 baking professionals and show them how our products can benefit their operations.”
One such product on display will be Doran Scales’ new Waste Traxx plant waste management software. At IBIE, the software will receive recognition as being a 2016 Becoming Environmentally Sustainable Together (B.E.S.T.) in Baking product. The B.E.S.T. in Baking Awards recognize companies that supply products and/or services to the baking industry that help to decrease landfill waste, foster energy and water conservation, and reduce environmental impacts.
