High-Speed Weighing in Small Spaces

A confectionery manufacturer required a high-speed check-weighing solution. The company wanted a compact and dual-track check weigher equipped with two metal detectors if needed. If you would like to learn about high-speed weighing in small spaces, you’ve come to the right article. Read on to learn more!

Important Facts

A flexible but precise check weighing solution that can also be fully equipped with a metal detector if required was needed to check the weight of any bars and other confectionery products at high speed.

The Application

The customer wanted a high-speed weighing solution to check that the bars were the proper weight by a MID Directive and for compliance with packaged goods regulation. The products used were the check weigher Flexus (fully customized) with an optional metal detector – Vistus.

Benefits for the Customer

A few benefits include MID approved for high speed and product weight checks, EMFC load cell for maximum precision and optimized configuration, compact and precise solutions, and reduced cleaning times because of the hygienic design.

The Project Goal and Implementation

This company has been a Minebea Intec customer for many years and was already using the Vistus metal detectors to check different products for metal contamination. Now, the customer required a high-speed checkweigher that was MID-approved and could deliver speeds of around 800 products per minute. Minebea Intec met this challenge by producing a customer-specific version of the incredible check weigher Flexus Combi. The wonderfully developed check weigher is a dual-track solution in which the two tracks support a speed of around 400 pieces per minute. The multi-track engineered-to-order solutions are the ideal fit for the customers, whose products are delivered in two ways and then processed by a check weigher. The two tracks, which can support a belt speed of around 1.5 meters per second, could be configured using a single control unit, enabling separate activation or deactivation of one track. The check weigher Flexus delivers some ultra-precise weighing results with weighing resolutions of around 0.1 g.
