Ishida will present its latest solution for high accuracy weighing of confectionery at small target weights at ProSweets, where the company’s stand will also feature its proven X-ray system for effective quality control.

The new Ishida Micro weigher incorporates the latest features from Ishida’s advanced RV series to deliver speeds of up to 120 weighments per minute at unsurpassed accuracy to within 0.01g on packs between 0.5g and 40g.

The compact design, a small 650mm x 650mm footprint and a maximum height of only 970mm, enables it to fit into the tightest of factory spaces.

In addition, the availability of a C-shaped main body option with off-centre discharge chute means two weighers can be configured in pairs to enable either mix weighing or a multiple outlet configuration. Easily removable troughs, hoppers and chutes speed up cleaning times.

Equally important, the minimal gaps between contact parts further improve product transfer and minimise risk of product spillage or loss, while the hygienically designed hoppers and drive units also reduce dust build up and cleaning times.

An interactive 3D menu with clear icons and colour touch LCD screen makes machine operation easy to understand and control. Data exchange can be carried out through a USB memory stick, and the Micro also offers flexible connectivity for Ethernet communication or via SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition).

Ishida’s advanced high performance X-ray inspection system, the IX-GA-4075, can reliably detect even tiny amounts of foreign bodies down to 0.3mm in size, including stone, glass and metals such as iron and stainless steel, as well as dense plastics.

Ishida’s unique Genetic Algorithm (GA) technology enables operators to ‘train’ the X-ray system for greater sensitivity to specific contaminants. In addition, it can spot missing, undersized and mis-shaped items or damaged products, and the software allows product masking and weight estimations.
