Launch of revolutionary high-speed multihead weigher

Yamato Scale Dataweigh has launched a brand new, high-speed addition to its
multihead-weighing portfolio. Aimed predominantly at the food, confectionery, snack,
powder and detergent sectors, the Dataweigh Omega applies groundbreaking
technology to improve productivity – operating at speeds of more than 200
weighments per minute (WPM) and increasing yield weights of up to 1.6%. The
system also boasts improved environmental responsiveness – by offering a reduction
in power consumption of 60% – ease-of-operation and food safety.

The system benefits from new high frequency technology, which withstands any
unbalanced loads and minimises load cell vibrations. A lattice digital filter adapts to
optimum weighing conditions and allows for high-speed operations, whilst a dual load
cell eliminates low frequency vibrations. Meanwhile, a toggle-less gating mechanism
reduces the mechanical impact on the load cell and suppresses the bucket gating
noise. Individually adjustable collating chutes also facilitate high-speed discharge,
ensuring flexibility and enhanced product diversity, whilst the accuracy of the system
means there is little product waste.

Neil Fowell, Managing Director of Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK, commented: “The
launch of the Dataweigh Omega series is a revolutionary addition to our portfolio. It
features ground-breaking technology, which has not been used in the industry before
and means we can offer significant benefits to customers in terms of productivity,
operability, maintainability, food safety and environmental responsiveness.”

In addition to improved productivity, the Dataweigh Omega series also facilitates
better food safety. IP67-compliant, the solution can be easily cleaned thanks to a
polygon shaped bucket. The streamlined main body prevents contaminants by
reducing irregularities in the surface whilst special bonding means buckets have no
space for dust and bacteria propagation. Meanwhile, a barcode reader prevents
incorrect operation by the automatic input of programme selection. The system is
also easy to maintain, allowing for quick recovery and shortened downtime, and
simple to operate.

Neil concluded: “The Omega series is more precise than other high-performance
machines so we are confident that it will deliver on customers’ expectations. We’re
really looking forward to seeing companies reap the benefits that the system can
deliver.”
