How our AGR software works
If trays (with strawberries, for example) must have a weight of 500 grams, it is important that there is at least 500 grams in each tray. But in addition, it is also necessary to ensure that there are not too many grams in each tray.
An example of how AGR software works is the setting of 550 grams as the upper limit. If the trays are weighed by the second weigher and the majority of the trays are near the upper limit (for example with 549, 548,547 grams), then these trays are approved. But if ten trays have a weight of 549 grams, the AGR software will automatically adjust the overweight downwards. This information is forwarded to the first weigher. The first weigher communicates with the distributing unit who directs more trays in the path of ‘overweight’ instead of in the ‘approved’ path.
At a certain point, the capacity decreases because the operator standing at the weighing machine has to check and adjust too many trays, because the margins are slim (for example between 500 and 520 grams). If the capacity decreases, the second weigher communicates with the first weigher and the overweight is set a little higher again.
Application of our AGR software
AGR software is used in industries where products must be weighed and the giveaway weight should not be too low, but also should not be too high. This software is mainly used in the agri-food sector.
Advantages of our AGR sofware
The advantages of ARCO’s AGR software are:
- The software can be easily integrated into existing and new weighing setups with a checkweigher;
- The payback period is very short;
- The giveaway weight decreases without sacrificing capacity;
- Operators quickly and clearly see which tray needs adjustment;
- The software automatically and continuously adjusts to maintain the optimal giveaway weight and capacity.
