Ishida RVE Multihead Weighers Raise the Bar

Ishida RVE Multihead Weighers Raise the Bar

Ishida is launching a new series of mid-range multihead weighers for the high performance weighing of free-flowing and semi-sticky products for a large number of dry, fresh and frozen food applications.

The new Ishida RVE range is available in a wide choice of models – including 10, 14, 16 and 20 head models – together with a broad selection of radial troughs, hoppers  (from 3 to 7 litres) and discharge chutes.  This enables the weighers to be tailored to individual product requirements with models available for mono-, mixed product (handling up to four different products simultaneously) and multiple-outlet weighing, and from small to large target weights. Speeds are dependent on model and application and can reach 120 weighments per minute.

Key to the excellent performance of the new RVE weighers is the introduction of several advanced technology features from Ishida’s top-of-the-range RV multihead weighers, including programmable digital filtering and advanced automatic feeder adjustment.  In addition, critical components such as loadcells and drive units are exclusively designed and manufactured by Ishida to ensure high performance standards are maintained.

An important benefit of the RVE range is that all models are pre-configured for the new generation of ‘smart’ factories and are available with a choice of packages incorporating Ishida’s pioneering Sentinel™ remote customer care software.  This provides users with the options of automated daily reporting of production line data, remote interventions or a live performance monitoring service.

In addition, along with the proven robust construction of all Ishida weighers, the RVE WP models offer a unique ‘dew sensor’ and ‘temperature sensor’ option for the live monitoring of moisture ingress or extreme temperatures during production.  Any problems, for example caused by a door cover left open or the failure of a loadcell membrane, will be immediately detected and flagged up on the weigher’s Remote Control Unit (RCU) or as part of Sentinel™ monitoring.  This allows fast intervention to protect companies against unnecessary downtime and help deliver enhanced maintenance and longer machine life.

The weighers also feature a new high-processing speed ROHS-compliant RCU (Remote Control Unit), with intuitive simple-to-use controls for fast set-up and adjustments.  The clear and easy-to-read screen prevents operator errors and simplifies procedures to help minimise downtime and maximise production efficiencies.  Plug and play USB data import/export and Ethernet connectivity ensure easy data management.

“The new RVE range represents a major step-forward in the provision of advanced multihead weighing solutions at a competitive price,” comments Ian Atkinson, Ishida Europe’s Business Manager – Multihead Weighers. “The speed, accuracy and reliability of every model will ensure they deliver a fast return on investment.”
