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.

Other possibilities

In addition to the PM2020-HC, we also have the PM2020-MC weighing machine. 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 weigher, bucket weigher or our checkweighers.

‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
