Food Checkweigher Station

It is very important for consumers that the product weight is consistent with the weight information in the product packaging. Any serious difference between the information on the package and the actual weight of the product, or a product produced outside of standard weights, can undermine the reputation of the company, as well as lead to sanctions.

Indicating the weight of the product and other informative text on the packaging of food products is a necessity due to regulations. You can use VISIOTT Automatic Food Checkweigher Station FCW-100 to determine whether there is a missing product in the package of products consisting of several parts, to measure the product weights, and to create a price label according to the product weight.

Automatic Food Checkweigher Station FCW-100, which we have produced as VISIOTT, complies with international standards and can make very precise measurements. Automatic Food Checkweigher Station FCW-100, which can measure product weights between 5 g and 10 kg at a speed of 300(*) cartons/minute with an accuracy of 0.1 g, can work integrated with traceable production processes.

A conventional checkweigher consists of input, measurement, and output conveyors. Load cell placed under the measuring conveyor detects the weight changes while the conveyor belt is running and measures the weight of the product passing through it with a certain precision by using special mathematical functions. This weight information is processed in the internal automation system and the system decides whether the product will be accepted or rejected. Products whose weight falls outside the predetermined acceptance range are sent to a locked rejection box with the help of an air piston.
