Touch and go
“I have been using Batchtron systems for the past 13 years. They are virtually maintenance free and when I have needed service I have found Scaletron very responsive. I have just upgraded to a new system which with the help of my local electrician was started on Friday evening and completed on Sunday ready for production on Monday morning”. Says Jim Willis, LHV Precast, November 2013
Pat Walgamuth of Akron Concrete bought his BatchTron in 1998 and it’s 17 years old at the time of this picture. We upgraded it in 2015 with a new PLC and touch screen, plus all the latest features. “It’s worked perfectly all these years” says Pat, “and all that’s wrong is the screen was hard to see.” Maybe if they had cleaned it, even that would not be a problem!
Akron’s original cabinet, dirt and all, houses the new system. The cutout on the door has been enlarged for the new screen but the PLC is smaller and fits with room to spare.
