Weight control system on the feeder conveyor determines the factor of the quality of products within an industry. The dynamics of the flow rate of material through the feeder conveyor weigh requires a good level of performance controllers. The base of current controllers such as FLC (Fuzzy Logic Controller) requires a certain amount of knowledge and expertise in its design that will make it difficult to achieve good system performance. These difficulties can be overcome by using systems based on ANFIS (Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System). By doing the learning offline, using ANFIS can be obtained by fuzzy inference systems to create a controller FLC. Microcontroller  have  FLC controller program, its integrated with notebook can monitor and control the notebook weigh feeder conveyor system. Designing a system that has been created will give good results with an average error value of 3.86% at the set-point of 1000 grams / minute, and the average error of 5.03% on set-point 2000 grams / minute in ten times testing.
