Generation next cutgate weigher

30-Jan-2012

Ishida Europe has launched an enhanced version of its weigher designed for granular products, which can be easily damaged by auger or volumetric cup fillers.

The new range of high-speed Cut-Gate weighers features a newly designed weigh hopper that minimises the discharge time of the weighed product without spillage, along with an enhanced Cut-Gate mechanism to improve product feeding and a processing capability that is three times faster.

These features deliver even faster weighing speeds – up to 30 weighments a minute per head depending on product type – while maintaining accuracy and gentle handling.

The Cut-Gate weigher offers precise weighing of all types of granular products such as detergents, freeze-dried coffee, tea and other drink granules, sugar, salt and couscous.

Ishida says the new range of weighers are typically three times more accurate than conventional filling or dosing systems.

This is achieved thanks to Ishida's accurate load cell and high-speed feedback control system.In addition, the servomotor-powered gate offers a gentle but precise opening and closing profile that ensures controlled product feeding to preserve particle size and structure and reduce dust emissions.

Ishida says the Cut-gate weigher is easy to operate, clean and maintain with quick product changeovers to minimise downtime. Its dustproof construction features weighing components that are enclosed in an easily detachable cover. A sealed enclosure for gas flushing is also available.
