The need for highly accurate and dependable weighing technology throughout the food industry will be the focus of HBM’s workshop, which is being held on Thursday, 26th June, at the Williams Conference Centre.

Every aspect of food production – from determining the amount of grain in silos through to ensuring the exact quantity of wine in a bottle – demands effective weighing solutions. HBM has a comprehensive range of products to meet every requirement whether the demand is for continuous operation in hostile and potentially explosive atmospheres through to very rapid packaging solutions.

The event will focus on a number of different applications using HBM products along with discussions on selecting and implementing the most suitable weighing technology. The main presentations will look at the key principles of weighing technology and, in addition, HBM will have a number of different products available. There will also be demonstrations such as displays highlighting filling and dosing equipment.

The importance of weighing accuracy in packaging is an important consideration. Applications can range from static – where not-legal-for-trade requirements apply – to dynamic uses that require different weighing technology solutions. Response speed may be critical in ensuring production lines operate at maximum efficiency. Equally, the hygiene constraints of the food and drink sectors demand additional considerations. 

The load cell is a common device used for weighing and HBM manufactures a wide range of these, each with different characteristics that impact on their suitability for various applications.

HBM is setting new standards in terms of accuracy and functionality with its integrated weighing technology solutions with this workshop event being an ideal opportunity for end users to experience the latest trends.

The Williams Conference Centre is located on Station Road, Grove, Oxfordshire, OX12 0DQ. Individuals wishing to register for the event or wanting more information can click here for details.
