Form Through Function – Accurate Checkweighing From Sartorius

The Synus® from Sartorius combines flexibility and precision to offer the perfect checkweighing solution for areas where space is at a premium.

The Sine wave or Sinusoid is a smooth, repetitive, oscillating curve. Well known in mathematics, a Sine curve is most often seen in ocean waves, sound waves, light waves and now one additional area – checkweighing. The Synus® from Sartorius gets its name from the famous mathematical graph because of the unique wave structure of the stainless steel housing. This new design allows the conveyor to offer flexible, friction locked connections to adjacent systems, letting the Synus® effortlessly integrate alongside any pre-existing infrastructure.

Sartorius products are renowned for their longevity, and the Synus® is no different. The flexibility of the conveyor system allows users to rest assured that the system will be able to evolve to suit any changes in their production procedures. The cantilevered weighing and transport system makes it incredibly easy to replace both belts and weighing tables.

Modular Solution

The speed with which operators can alter the system mechanics is thanks to the “Quick-release” mechanism of the transport belt. This modular solution is available with three different electronic systems and 18 weighing systems (1, 2, 5, 7 kg) allowing the Synus® to support all customer requirements, regardless of how unique their process is. On top of this, the checkweigher is equipped with Sartorius’ Electromagnetic Force Compensation (EMC) weigh cells. These cells have been specifically designed for use in dynamic checkweighers and offer perfect stability, exceptional precision, stabilisation times and rugged industrial grade construction (IP54/IP65)

As the perfect partner to the food and pharmaceutical industries, the Synus® offers a system designed and optimized for the easy maintenance of strict hygiene levels. The primary function of the Synus® however is the accurate management of product classification, completeness checks, over/under checkweighing and average weight control. Most importantly, the Synus® can perform these tasks at incredible speeds and on a variety of products, such as beverage cans, cardboard boxes, sealed bags, plastic bottles, tetra packs and a whole lot more.

To fully facilitate its optimal integration into any process the Synus® can be upgraded with numerous special features, these can included items such as a polycarbonate touch guards. These guards protect the weigh cells from accidental contact or from drafts. The inclusion of these is highly recommended for verifiable applications that demand high levels of accuracy. Either pushers or air blast nozzles can be installed which allow the automatic removal of products that fail to fall within predetermined parameters. Additionally, the control lines for the operation of customer specific sorting lines can be integrated.

The CoSynus® – Combining Checkweighing and Metal Detection

For compact operating environments space is often highly restricted. To solve this, the Synus® can be easily transformed into a dual checkweigher and metal detector. Known as the CoSynus, this combination system offers all the benefits of a regular Synus® in addition to a whole lot more. From a single control interface, both machines can be configured and controlled allowing the CoSynus® to offer speed and effort advantages over more traditional two machine installations.  For customers who already own a Synus® the move to upgrade to a CoSynus® is easy and economical whilst also being achieved with minimal downtime.

To ensure compliance with regulations such as IFS and BRC both the Synus® and CoSynus® can be connected to process control software such as Sartorius ProControl@Enterprise (SPC@Enterprise). This software is the very latest in cutting edge statistical process control software that allows you to secure Product Quality, Consumer Safety and Equipment Effectiveness from one easy to use system.
