Related tags: Weight

The latest Ishida multihead weigher to be installed at Pipers Crisps factory in Lincolnshire is a 14-head CCW-R series model in a ‘crisp’ specification to handle product quickly and gently throughout the weighing process. This new packing line also includes an advanced Ishida DACS-G checkweigher for a final check.

The R series multihead weigher incorporates Ishida's proven technology with its combination calculation software, five-stage digital filter, anti-floor vibration and Ishida-made load cells to maintain accuracy at high speed. At Pipers, the weigher is achieving accuracy to within 1% of target at speeds of 80 packs a minute for 40g bags and 28 packs a minute for the 150g size, within the capabilities of up to 120 bags a minute.

The Ishida DACS-G checkweigher has a digital loadcell that switches between two weighing capacities and graduations.

The company produces 288kg of fried potatoes every hour to fill 1.5M bags of crisps a month.

Pipers Crisps’ production and operations manager Shaun Watson says: “We use the best potatoes and seasonings to ensure an intense flavour for the consumer, and this quality of product is reflected in the packaging we use. As part of this, it is essential that our packs are presented with an accurate and consistent weight – and this is what the Ishida weighers deliver.”
