AZO, your specialist for raw material automation and logistics, will exhibit at SOLIDS 2022 in Dortmund, Germany, from June 22 - 23, 2022.

At our booth in hall 5, M16-5 we will show you our solutions for storing, conveying, screening, dosing, weighing and feeding of bulk materials, powders, granulates and liquids.

Our intelligent process IT enables plant control up to full automation, tracking & tracing as well as the complete documentation of raw materials and processes.
No matter whether large, medium or small components, bulk materials or liquids:
AZO offers you individual solutions for the automation of your raw materials.

At our trade fair stand you can find out more about the following key themes:

For the safe discharge of powdery, crystalline, fatty or granular bulk materials from containers, we offer you our AZO vibration bottoms. The vibration bottom ensures optimum emptying of containers without residues and can be used for almost all bulk materials, even those with poor flow properties, in the food, plastics, chemical or pharmaceutical industries.

  • Simple and sturdy design
  • Reliable discharge
  • For universal use
  • Uniform fall of the product column (materials flow)
  • No stacking and bridging
  • Also suitable for problematic and flow-resistant materials
  • Optimum emptying of hoppers, without residues

AZO big bag discharge stations enable low-dust emptying of big bags and safe product feeding into the closed production line. In order to become even more efficient and cost-effective, AZO has developed a modular concept for a big-bag discharge station. Depending on the requirements, the necessary components such as frame, traverse, chain hoist, discharge support, big bag connection system, buffer container and discharge unit can be selected from a modular system.

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Reliable and low-dust discharge of bulk materials into the process
  • Big bags are used for materials with even low use rates since they are an environmental-friendly shipping and handling container
  • The station also works well with big bags with an inner liner, and is available with a liner tautness device
  • For difficult to discharge materials, the discharge station is equipped with a vibrator or bag massager
  • The interface with the down stream process is designed to meet the specific requirement

For product feeding under the highest hygienic requirements, we have invented the AZO feeding hopper in hygienic design. It is specially designed for feeding dusty, powdery and granular bulk materials into closed material feeding systems and is suitable for a wide range of container types, such as sacks, cartons or drums.

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Hygienic design
  • Wet cleaning with jet cleaner
  • Gasket easy to remove for drying after wet cleaning and easy to install as no adhesive is required
  • The gasket is composed of silicone and is metal detectable.
  • The sack support can be folded down or completely detached.
  • Gas springs open the cover after releasing the clamps
  • Cover switch for controlling system functions
  • The cover switch complies with safety requirements for applications up to performance level D.
  • Outlet, optimally adapted to downstream devices
  • Suitable for ATEX zone 22 and 2

Some micro-quantities are difficult or inefficient to automate. But it is precisely these micro-quantities that often have a decisive influence on the recipe. For this reason, we have developed AZO ManDos - an operator-guided, manual weighing center that combines all the necessary components.

Scales, surge bins, desks, suction systems, barcode readers and label printers, including the necessary software - all combined in one smart system!

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Can be used as a stand-alone system
  • Can be expanded to a comprehensive, networked batch production system
  • Logical user guidance
  • End-to-end documentation
  • Identification of raw materials
  • Order, recipe and article management
  • Storage place management
  • Creation of calibration data
  • Host interface
  • Can be validated

Manual weighing of minor and micro components bears risks and is prone to errors. The more components and batches come together, the greater the risk to product safety and quality. 

With the AZO COMPONENTER® Step, we make it possible for you to automatically weigh in these minor and micro components, such as pigments, dyes or flavors, to the exact gram. This enhances product safety, increases production efficiency, and ensures the hygiene and batch purity of your products. All in compliance with strict, industry-specific requirements.

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Maximum product safety thanks to tracking & tracing
  • Process steps and weighing results are reproducible
  • Consistent, strict adherence to formulation
  • High levels of accuracy and cycle times
  • Rigorous batch separation, resulting in prevention of cross-contamination
  • Can be expanded with further modules, providing flexibility when changing over products
  • High throughput rates thanks to fully automatic filling and transportation within the plant
  • Allows effective production planning
  • Less outlay for cleaning 
  • Target containers can be provided with liners if needed
  • Compliance with stringent hygiene requirements
  • Reduction of physical strain and mental stress in staff
