Weighing solutions that enable African food manufacturers to become more competitive will form the highlight of the Ishida Europe stand at Propak East Africa. The company says the accuracy, speed and reliability of its new value-for-money CHW multihead weigher and DACS-EL checkweigher models help eliminate product giveaway and increase throughput. This allows more packs to be produced and the delivery of higher yields for each production run.
A 14 head and 10 head model from the Ishida CHW multihead weigher range, specifically designed for free flowing dry foods such as snacks, nuts, cereals, rice and sugar, will be on display. Speeds of up to 80 packs per minute with accuracy to within one percent of target mean the weighers can achieve a typical payback on investment in less than one year.
The hygienic design allows easy cleaning and maintenance. Tool-free removal and replacement of contact parts and a user-friendly keypad operation minimise downtime. The Ishida DACS-EL checkweigher provides reliable weight monitoring to ensure pack consistency and meets all regulatory requirements. It incorporates Ishida’s proven load cell technology that ensures exceptional levels of accuracy and consistency, with a weighing range between 10 and 1200 g and the ability to handle pack sizes of up to 300m (length), 220mm (width) and 130mm (height). The height-adjustable, cantilevered single frame design means the DACS-EL is able to fit into factories with limited space. The checkweigher offers a choice of rejects systems, air, arm and pusher with top speeds of 200 packs per minute.
