Hardy Process Solutions provides weighing solutions for process and packaging for industries including food processing, automated manufacturing, chemical, plastics, rubber, and more. We have been offering accurate, quality industrial weighing scales since 1918 and are now in our Centennial year!
Hardy assists processors and manufacturers by offering solutions that create a drastic reduction in waste while enhancing quality and productivity by as much as 50% over other industrial weighing and packaging equipment.
Hardy's Dynamic Series of checkweighing machinery is built using off-the shelf components, with controls based on a Rockwell Automation's CompactLogix platform, providing a standardized open source architecture that is flexible enough to meet both current and future control needs.
Weight processing is managed by Hardy’s HI 4050CW weight controller. Sampling weight data at 4,800 times per second, the HI4050CW is capable of providing enough weighments to accurately categorize packages weighing from 5g to 225kg at speeds up to 350 packs per minute.
PLC WEIGHING MODULES
Hardy’s single-slot Rockwell® PLC/PAC modules read and condition data from strain gage load cells and communicate it over the I/O chassis backplane to the processor. They provide basic weight data or are loaded with sophisticated algorithms to perform application-specific industrial weighing processes from simple batch weighing to loss-in-weight control, filling or dispensing. Modules are available for Allen-Bradley® ControlLogix®, CompactLogix®, POINT I/O, Micro800® or SLC500 chassis.
Our goal is to provide high performance weighing equipment at the least total cost to own. As an industrial scale company, we stay on the pulse of innovations in the field. We offer accurate industrial weighing scales, including floor scales, load cells, platform scales, weight modules, weight controllers and more. Our customers find that Hardy is easy to work with and we offer dependable solutions while providing an excellent return on investment.
