Material Feed Systems

Labotek dominates the Australian and New Zealand plastic industry markets for vacuum conveying of plastic granular and recycled regrind materials since Fleming began distributing Labotek in 1981. In fact, they have been so popular, many remain in operation today. Fleming carry hopper loaders ex stock Sydney including all main spares, supported by a team of technicians who are experts in service and repair.

Micro Scan Image

Microprocessor control for material handling systems.

The Micro-Scan series offers comprehensive control over material handling requirements, facilitating automated control of raw material conveying processes. This advanced system can effectively manage up to 8 vacuum receivers of SVR type, providing seamless and efficient operation.


Operation of the control is extremely easy; a user-friendly interface via a 6” touch screen enables automatic control of conveying of raw materials up to 32 stations.

The Labo-Scan control system enables precise adjustment of suction time, line clearing time, suction address, and air speed frequency directly from the touchscreen interface, utilising either a keyboard pad or intuitive drop-down boxes. Operators have the flexibility to seamlessly scroll between station selections as needed. Additionally, the Labo-Scan system features integrated control of suction address, allowing for the automated operation of a pneumatic slide valve located under a drying hopper. This feature ensures a safe and self-cleaning conveying cycle, optimising efficiency and reliability in material handling processes.


Labo-Scan 50 offers streamlined materials handling solutions with its user-friendly interface and advanced control capabilities.

Boasting a 7-inch touch screen interface, this system offers seamless automatic control of conveying across up to 50 stations, leveraging robust network communication via AS-Interface and Siemens Profi Net to ensure unparalleled reliability. Housed within an elegantly designed wall-mounted cabinet, the system combines aesthetic appeal with high functionality, capable of efficiently managing up to 4 vacuum stations with optional energy-saving frequency control for optimised performance and resource efficiency.


Labotek labo-net series takes full control of all materials handling requirements.

Ease of use, no need for special training. Labo-Net is able to handle Labotek Energy Saving Systems & Labotek frequency controlled vacuum stations as standard. The Labo-Net uses network communication between system components via the well known, flexible and very reliable AS-Interface & Siemens Profi Net.


Safe & easy to use sql database server directly in the plc system, eliminating the usual tackle of windows based software updates and virus protection software.

The Labotek SQL database is using standard web browser tool for access to relevant process data from the drying and conveying system, to be used for quality control and general logistics management.  Database is designed for Labo-Net controls and is prepared for running with or without the Labotek Gravi-Dryer® system.
