Kontrols & Industrial Weighing was approached by PB foods with a challenging project. PB Foods were receiving customer complaints as there was inconsistent amount of fruit in the yogurt cups. Kontrols & Industrial Weighing provided a solution using an X5 controller and KIW's custom software to increase the accuracy and efficiency of the overall process.

The original system had an operator manually add the fruit to the yogurt to achieve the fruit-to-yogurt percentage. Because this was done by sight, it caused great in-accuracy which lead to unhappy customers. Kontrols & Industrial Weighing aimed to provide a solution that accurately and automatically reaches the fruit-to-yogurt percentage.

Kontrols & Industrial Weighing provided PB Foods with an automatic system which had the following capabilities:
- Self monitors
- Increases production time
- Accurate consistent blending
- Less product wastage
- Automatically stops the pump if the fruit flow stops, goes out of the tolerance or sucks in air instead of fruit

The above was achieved by using the following products:
- S/S Pallet scale: used for weighing fruit was able to be washed down
- Flow meter: in addition to the scale, it monitors the fruit flow
- X5 Controller/Weight Indicator: enables scheduling, recipe writing and reporting, ensures the correct cleaning processes are completed. The X5 is controlled by the KIW's custom software.

The X5 controller can be programmed for any weighing systems including; check-weighing, batching, filling systems, truck weighing and custom weighing systems.
