How our PM2020-HC weighing machine work
The weighing machine is divided into two tracks, each with three independent weighing belts. Trays with underweight, good weight and overweight are placed in random order on the weighing belts. Good weight trays are automatically transported on to the next station in the packaging line. Underweight and overweight trays are manually processed by an operator.
On each weighing belt, the machine indicates with an LED indicator how much underweight or overweight is in a tray. The operator can see at a glance whether a large or small product has to be removed from the tray or whether it has to be added to achieve the desired weight. By weighing products in this way, the weight per tray becomes more stable and the give-away weight is lower.
Use of our PM2020-HC weighing machine
ARCO’s weighing machines can be used for boxes, bags, cans, jars and sachets. The application field of the PM2020-MC weighing machine is extremely wide. The weighing line performs excellently in the mushroom industry and is also extremely suitable for weighing soft fruits, such as strawberries, grapes, raspberries and berries.
Advantages of our PM2020-HC weighing machine
The advantages of an ARCO PM2020-HC weighing machine are:
- Capacity up to 100 punnets per minute;
- Operation can be done by one operator;
- Any desired recipe can be set between 50 and 1000 grams;
- Less human error
- Less loss due to too much weight in the trays;
- Faster throughput, so fresher packed;
- Less floor space required;
- Low investment.
In addition to the PM2020-HC, we also offer the PM2020-MC. A weighing solution with the same effect, but with a slightly lower capacity (60 punnets per minut). For weighing loosely packed products you can also take a look at our triple deck system, multihead weighers or our checkweighers.
