How our checkweighers work

The weight of the different samples that have been weighed by the checkweigher can be sent to the PLC by means of a fieldbus, such as Profinet. Signal exchange with machines in front and behind is possible. With a high line speed, all packets can be randomly weighed, both in shape and weight.

The junction box and the control panel are housed in the sheet steel housing of the checkweigher. This casing is also part of the frame. This creates a solid construction under the load cell, so that vibrations do not affect the weighing moments.

The checkweigher can be expanded with a rejector for products that fall outside the set over and under tolerance. In this way, the production line can continue to run. This prevents unnecessary standstill of the machines. It is possible to read the checked weight and store it in a database.
