Command G series

Aluminum <100lbs/hr <45kg/hr

Steel <250lbs/hr <110kg/hr

The Command G series of machines have been designed to provide exceptional machine performance and reliability within the smallest footprint possible. Designed in-house on the most advanced 3D solid modelling software and put through a rigorous Finite Element Analysis testing program, our machines are built to perform reliably and consistently throughout their working life. The Command G series was designed to offer the full package and to this end it has a fully integrated feed hopper with a 55 gallon capacity and a briquette exit conveyor as standard. At the heart of the machine is a heavy duty, high precision, single compression cylinder master structure which produces a level of strength and performance not seen elsewhere in this capacity class.

Aluminum <200lbs/hr <90kg/hr

Steel <500lbs/hr <230kg/hr

Controlling the machine is the CommandWare system. This simple to use system provides alarm feedback, monitors briquette production, provides automatic briquette length compensation, allows remote diagnostics and offers a simple, interactive touch screen experience which aids improved machine handling. Return on Investment is a key factor to all customers and machine capability and reliability are at the heart of this equation. The Command G series machines have been specifically designed to provide efficient and reliable briquette production, ensuring your machine investment will provide strong returns year after year.

CommandWare The revolutionary CommandWare machine software system on the Command series briquetters, provides users with an easy to use and efficient interface system. The software offers a very logical approach to machine operation and fault finding. Featuring both automatic and manual modes, the user can quickly and easily move between function screens to vary machine positions and functions. The system has a range of smart functions which automatically sense and help optimise machine performance.

Simple to use touch screen Ensures efficient machine operation.

Logical screen configuration and page ordering Improves machine uptime.

Concise machine alarm messages Ensures quick diagnosis of machine issues.

Hopper in-feed monitoring Constantly monitors the machine in-feed conditions and makes adjustments to ensure a consistent inflow of chips.

Automatic briquette counter Allows the tracking of machine output to ensure an accurate estimate of material production weight.

Automatic Jam Detection System (AJDS) Intelligently senses a machine system jam, runs a recovery process and alerts the operator.

Automatic Briquette Length Compensation (ABLC) Automatically senses and adjusts briquette lengths to ensure consistency.

Material Compensation System (MCS) Adjusts for material changeover and works automatically with the ABLC system to ensure briquette length consistency with new materials.

Thermal Monitoring System (TMS) The controller monitors machine hydraulic operating temperatures and alerts the operator of a system overheating condition.

Remote diagnostics (Optional) Allows the tracking of machine activity and fault finding in real time.

Machine performance reporting (Optional) Provides a package of machine performance reports including alarm history, production rates and performance evaluation.
