God.... hear my prayer... and damn the {censored} out of the people how make decisions around here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I cannot express how infuriated I am.

 

 

 

 

From the moment they said, "Let's build the whole system on a single stand, to make it easy for shipping," I was cringing.

 

Now we're {censored}ed. {censored}ED, I say. PROPER {censored}ED.

 

We've got a mechanical vibratory feeder on the same frame as a high-resolution scale hopper, and this hopper is VISUALLY bouncing like fender panels on a hoopty crossing the railroad tracks. They self-sabotaged this system. Idiots. Oh let's make one big frame, easier to ship. Yeah. This system gets shipped ONCE, and sits in a factory for YEARS. Let's compromise the design just for shipping! Let's put incredibly severe vibrations through a machine that has load cells measuring 1/100's of an inch! Standing 20 feet away, I can SEE the load cells shaking like an engine bay of a muscle car!

 

UNACCEPTABLE!!!

 

 

 

This is really pushing me. {censored} Michigan's god damned economy, even if I wanted to bail on this place, I'll never find another job in this state.

 

 

Time to make Rock n Roll a career choice.

OP - My former employer used to use differential transformers, on large multi hopper scales, with air solenoid actuated doors, and usually a vibratory cone in the middle of the scale to make sure product would move out to the buckets.

I don't recall the jitter from induced vibration mattering very much and these were not on the same stand, they were on the same structure.

Albeit, the structure was very heavy (1/2" aluminum plate") but this always worked for them. They were switching to load cells when I left, but the DT seemed to have some benefits (that old school tech can do it sometimes!).

sorry you are bent.

cheers

I'm sorry to hear that man. It's gotta be tough when you see your own company (and the source of your paycheck) jump the shark right before your eyes.

 

I have a coworker from Michigan. When I asked her about the ailing economy there, she just said "that's Michigan for you." It seems that state has sucked for awhile, and the state government doesn't have a clue. Jennifer Granholm has to be one of the worst Governors in the country.
