AUTOWEIGHER from WeighPack Systems
April 19, 2011 By Bakers Journal
April 19, 2011 – The AUTOWEIGHER linear scale from WeighPack Systems Inc. is the first step in automation for growing companies that want to significantly reduce the high cost of labour and product giveaway associated with manual filling.
The AUTOWEIGHER is available in one or nine quart models, and with one or three pans. Product is fed automatically from the hopper along a vibrating pan into the weigh bucket below. When the target weight is reached, the product is released through a funnel into a container or bag below.
Operating at speeds up to 15 cpm in automatic or semi-automatic mode, the tool-less disassembly of the hopper, weigh bucket and funnel are designed to minimize downtime when cleaning or changing product. Pneumatics are not mounted on the weigh bucket, eliminating the risk of contamination into air lines. The AUTOWEIGHER displays product weight in imperial or metric and includes a foot pedal for semi-automatic operation. As a stand-alone unit, the AUTOWEIGHER can be set on a tabletop or floor stand and can easily interface with auxiliary equipment at a later date.
The AUTOWEIGHER can weigh a very wide range of products, including snacks, nuts, powder, coffee, and other items, and is available in a variety of finishes.
