CHECKWEIGHING CASE STUDIES

  • Overcoming HACCP Obstacles With Metal Detection/Checkweighing Systems

    This case study shows how one food manufacturer, Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Visitors Center, keeps its customers safe with a combination food metal detector/checkweigher system.

  • Portion Control: Flow Meters Vs. Weight Control

    Royal Food Products could continue its portion control method using flow meters or find a new way of weighing individual ingredients. The company's plant engineer explains the choice to use load cells.

  • How Load Cells Increased Ice Cream Manufacturing Accuracy

    When the University of Wisconsin found it necessary to update their dairy mixing processes, they chose to update their system with the advantages and benefits offered by load cells over pressure gauges.

  • Brewing Company Assures Fill Levels With Checkweigher System

    At Matt Brewing Company, attention to detail and uncompromising commitment to quality are the signature trademarks of the company and their award-winning Saranac beers. Concerned with accuracy and reliability, the company wanted to assure every customer receives a full can of beer every time, so they searched for a gamma fill level inspection system and instead, became the first brewer in the world to use this new checkweigher technology for 100 percent inspection.

  • Frozen Cake Manufacturer Uses Combination Metal Detector & Checkweigher Unit To Assure Quality

    Maximum product quality has to be guaranteed, and has come to be expected, from the customers of this frozen dessert specialist. Top quality checkweighing and metal detection systems are essential in ensuring this quality.

  • Checkweighers Save Bagel Manufacturer Lots Of Dough

    One wholesale bagel baker in the Pacific Northwest attributes its success to their willingness to go the extra mile to meet their customers’ quality standards. In this case, that extra mile was represented by over-apportioning dough to ensure that the finished bagels were at or above the specification weight. This policy was good for customer satisfaction, but not very good for profitability. By Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed

The new Signum® industrial scale from Sartorius is a compact industrial scale in which a choice of two powerful technologies is used: SIWR and SIWA models work with a strain-gauge type load cell; the high-resolution SIWS models feature monolithic weigh cells based on electromagnetic force compensation. The new Signum® offers exceptional performance features and, despite its wide variety of functions, is a very easy-to-operate industrial scale. The Signum® is extremely rugged and resistant, and perfectly adapts to any ambient conditions in an industrial environment.

A special design feature is the consistent implementation of the construction principles for hygienic design according to the specifications of the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG).

Space and cost savings is obtained with Anritsu's integrated inspection solution, the combination checkweigher and metal detector system. In one system you can receive high accuracy weighing and metal detection. This combination system is an integration of the SSV series checkweigher and duw series metal detector. This integrated solution combines the best-of-both worlds for safety compliance in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

The SC-E model is the perfect entry to the world of ultra-modern X-ray inspection systems and the associated high quality product line of WIPOTEC-OCS.

The HC-A-MDi checkweigher / metal detector model is synonymous with high precision weighing in combination with extremely sensitive metal detection for optimal performance. It is a practical combination of inspection technologies in the interests of increased consumer safety and provides scales and metal detector in one space-saving unit, which can be operated from one HMI and easily integrated as part of any line.

With a waterproof and dustproof exterior, the SSV-i series checkweighers are designed for unpackaged foods. Its hygienic design allows for stringent sanitary control for unpackaged fresh food, such as fish, poultry and other meat products. The waterproof exterior is needed during the cleaning process to ensure that all parts of the checkweigher remain intact and fully operational after being sprayed down and sanitized. The checkweighing system is not only used for weighing products and checking for missing products, but is also used for controlling filler or fixed weight, data recording and line monitoring.
