  • Checkweigher Synus
  • Software SPC@Enterprise

Precise weighing results are a benefit. Checkweighers Synus facilitate the reliable weighing of packaged products, which helps ensure product quality. Process optimization and a connection to SPC@Enterprise assist with process control and compliance with some statutory regulations.

The Project Goals and Implementation

Confectionery manufacturer Sula has 70 years of experience producing any confectionery, making complex and soft sweets without and with a chocolate coating. This company produces sugar-free items and products containing sugar, with sugar-free options accounting for the most comprehensive ranges. The molded sweets are stored, cooled, and then transported to a packaging line through conveyor belts and funnel systems. There is a large variety from tubular bags, folding boxes, blister packs, and other coiled sweets presented loose in the tray; the confectionery is all packed in line with the market requirements. A check weighing system from Minebea Intec was created to guarantee a proper product weight. Sula is now using check weighers of the Synus generation. The check weighers then provide dependable measuring results even at higher process speeds while ensuring that any packages falling outside of the legally defined tolerances are ejected.

The check weighers Synus have developed in line with Hygienic Design directives to help ensure easier cleaning. Their technology, menu guidance, and design have all been made to allow simple and flexible modification of the product line. The line could easily be altered to help produce a new or seasonal confectionery.
