Yamato to Reveal New Series of Check Weighers and General Purpose Weigher at Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition

Yamato, the leading manufacturer of multihead weighing technology, will be demonstrating its new I series checkweigher and Semi Automatic weigher (SDW) at this year’s Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition.

The new I series check weigher series is designed to increase profits by enabling improved productivity, yield rate and increased reliability through high operating speeds, reduced power consumption and uncompromising accuracy. It’s also easy to use, making it straightforward to change product lines over at the touch of a button, reflecting the fast moving requirements of modern production lines.

Constructed using tubular legs, the new checkweigher comes complete with IP 67 stainless steel housing and one-touch removable conveyors that enable a tool-free strip down. It is also fully complaint with European Directives and comes complete with a 200kg load cell capacity.

With significant advancements in technology over the years, the humble checkweigher has evolved from weighing goods on a production line, to become a key element in manufacturers’ quality control programmes. In fact, many food manufacturers now rely on these machines for their unparalleled accuracy, efficiency and to meet super market requirements.

Ian Aitchison, Technical Manager, Yamato said: “The consequences of a package containing either too much, or too little of a product, can lead to a serious loss of revenue and reputational damage. Customers will not tolerate inconsistencies in their purchases. They have certain expectations based on historic buying patterns which means each product must be consistent with the description, including weights stipulated on the packaging, or customers will turn to another brand to meet their needs. The equipment we will be demonstrating at Total 2013 has been specifically designed to tackle these challenges.”

Also launching at Total 2013, Yamato are set to reveal the new SDW – which is ideal for weighing meats, fish, vegetables and delicate produce.

The SDW weigher is waterproof and washable, meaning that cleaning and maintenance is simple. It is also multifunctional, as operational settings can facilitate the registration of up to 100 products while also being capable of mix weighing and count-weighing making it an extremely versatile machine.

Aitchison concludes, “The flexibility, speed and accuracy offered by the new I-Series and SDW can really help business improve accuracy and efficiency. This enables the technology to play a crucial role in processing and packaging applications whilst providing a source of critical data, enabling manufacturers to improve production and delivery.”
