Applications

Silo/Tank/Hopper Weighing Scales/Systems

OPTIMA supplies a wide range of weighing modules and weighing indicators for Silo/Tank/Hopper weighing systems. Silo, tank, hopper, bin or bunker can be installed on top of load cells and the weight of the contents can be determined  with a very high precision and easily communicated to external data systems such as PLC, HMI or SCADA.A silo weighing system is consists of three or four load cells, each with a weighing module, an intellegent junction box and a weight indicator or transmitter. We have a complete solution to offer. Optima has specifically supplied a range of OIML and NTEP approved load cells, weighing assemblies and instrumentation/electronics for accurate measurement during storage, loading or unloading of bulk solids and liquids.

Our products have a wide and diverse range of applications, ranging from the weighing of a reactor in the chemical industry to the implementation of powder micro batching systems for the pharmaceutical industry.

Food

OPTIMA is a national supplier for important food industry manufacturers of machines and plants. LAUMAS manufactures stainless steel load cells, weight indicators and weight transmitters with a high IP protection degree (up to IP69K). This technology can be easily sanitized and is therefore recommended for installations in the food industry. LAUMAS also offers a wide range of mounting kits for load cells specially designed for silos and tanks weighing.

Construction

OPTIMA products are applied to machines and plants for the construction industry, such as concrete mixing plants, asphalt production plant, concrete mixers, jet grouting plants and construction cranes . OPTIMA offers load cells, weight transmitters, weighing terminals and other specific products for this field: for example, batching systems for concrete preparation, which can manage the automation of the production system and ensure the traceability of the different components present in the mixture (aggregates, cement, water and additives) according to the regulations in force.

Transport and Handling

OPTIMA has always collaborated with manufacturers of industrial transport and handling systems. Weighing technology supplied by OPTIMA - load cells, weight transmitters for PC/PLC and weight indicators - used in transporting, grinding, screening and mixing processes of powders and liquid products. Other applications include weighing systems for automated warehouses and dynamic weighing systems with continuous flow rate regulation on loss-in-weight feeders or for conveyor belts. We manufacture also in line weight control systems, which can be applied on conveyor belts or roller conveyors.

Packaging

OPTIMA, as a renowned company in the field of industrial weighing and batching, offers a wide range of solutions for the world of packaging. Load Cells, scales, weighing platforms linked to innovative weight indicators and transmitters for PC/PLC which carry the "Made in ITALY" label. LAUMAS products are recommended in the implementation of applications on multi-head weighing machines, vertical packaging machines, filling machines, automatic and semi-automatic bagging machines, weighing systems, packing, marking and packaging.

Lifting

OPTIMA offers several solutions for the lifting sector, including custom installations, for designing weighing and load limiting systems for cranes, bridge cranes, aerial platforms, lifts and freight lift. LAUMAS load limiters, made of load cells and weight transmitters connected by wire or radio, can be easily installed on any type of lifting system; they can be simple or redundant, depending on whether the installation is designed to lift goods or persons (aerial platforms). Wide range of digital crane scales for bridge or portable cranes.

Environment

The collaboration with leading companies in the field of environment has led OPTIMA technology to be applied, among others, in plants for the recycling of raw materials, flue gas treatment, and production of energy from renewable sources and disposal of end-of-life products. OPTIMA ensures accurate weighing with traceability, which finds application in waste collection areas or return systems for waste for the purpose of recycling raw materials and increase the awareness on the issue of waste sorting.
