Mushroom weighing machine

'How do I pack my mushrooms quickly and efficiently, while keeping give-away weight to a minimum?’ Specifically for these companies, ARCO developed a new self-regulating Mushroom weighing line with a smart Light to Perform function that allows producers to save as much as 4 to 6 per cent on product loss due to excess weight in the package.

Inline weighing machine

Using the ARCO inline weighing machine, fruits and vegetables can be weighed quickly and efficiently after harvesting. A single operator can weigh up to 100 units per minute. The ARCO weighing machine performs perfectly in the mushroom and soft fruit industry. The machine is suitable for processing any desired recipe, from 50 to 1000 grams. Any desired weight can be set for each individual recipe. The most common weights are 250 and 500 grams. Based on these recipes the Control Weighing Machine processes up to 60 packages per minute, with just one operator! The weighing machine is divided into two or three lanes, each with five independent weighing belts. Underweight, correct weight, and overweight baskets are placed on the weighing belts in random order. Baskets with correct weight are automatically transported to the next station in the packing line. Underweight and overweight baskets are manually corrected by an operator.

LED indicator

On each weighing belt the machine shows how much each basket is under or over the desired weight via a LED indicator. The operator can see at a glance whether a large or a small product needs to be removed from or added to a basket to achieve the desired weight. By weighing products in this way the weight per basket is more consistent and the loss due to overweight lower.
