How our Bucket weigher works
The target weight is set in advance. You determine the ideal weight of one bundle of herbs and set the maximum deviation. The upper and lower limits of the target weight can be set separately. An operator stands in front of two Bucket weighers and places a bundle of herbs in one of the two weighers each time. The capacity of ARCO’s herb weighing machines is very high. An operator can weigh 10 to 15 bundles per minute. When the bundle has the correct weight, the center of lights turns green and the Bucket weigher at the bottom opens automatically. The Bucket weigher will not open until the correct weight is reached. This way you can be sure that the weight meets your set requirements at every weigh-in. The herbs land on a conveyor belt placed under the Bucket weigher and can be transported from there to a flowpacker or other packaging machine.
