How our PM2020-HC weighing machine works
The weighing machine is divided into three tracks; 1 track for good weight, 1 track for underweight and 1 track for overweight. The underweight and overweight tracks each have 3 independent weighing belts. Punnets with good weight are automatically transported to the next station in the packaging line. Punnets with under- and overweight are manually processed by an operator.
On each weighing belt, the machine indicates with an LED indicator how much under- or overweight there is in a punnet. The operator sees at a glance whether a large or small product should be taken from the punnet or added to reach the desired weight. By weighing products in this way, the weight per punnet becomes more stable and the give-away weight lower.
The only difference between the PM2020-MC and the PM2020-HC is that the middle capacity (MC) can process up to 60 punnets per minute and the high capacity (HC) up to 100 punnets per minute.
