Self-adjusting multihead weigher

Friday, 19 January, 2007 | Supplied by:

Scanvaegt's series of multihead weighers, the ScanCombinator, now comes with automatic feeder adjustment (AFA) technology that ensures a consistent high flow of products to the weighing unit and greater processing accuracy.

The AFA technology automatically ensures that each individual feeder vibrates at its own unique resonance frequency. The multihead weigher is able to optimise the resonance frequency of all its vibratory feeders in less than 30 s ensuring a consistent high capacity.

The design of the multihead weigher ensures that soft, wet and sticky products are moved to the weighing unit as smoothly and rapidly as possible - and does away with feeder system blockages. This means that products like salad, marinated vegetables, shredded carrots, cheese, seafood, bacon cubes, sausage slices as well as other hard-to-handle products are moved to the weighing unit hassle free.

The ScanCombinator is perfected for reliability and built to last. All parts of the multihead weigher are in stainless steel with various choices of surface of the radial feeder system and the hopper gates are driven by step motors, ensuring high-speed operation, flexibility and minimum maintenance.

The weigher features good hygiene with an open construction and easy-to-clean sloping surfaces. It has an intelligent user interface with a colour touch screen making it easy to operate.

Key features of AFA technology include: fast self-adjustment - it takes less than 30 s to optimise the frequency of all 10, 14 or 18 vibratory feeders easy to use - no need to give operators any special training - just push a button driver frequency is far more accurate than when using mechanical adjustment and the machine is unaffected by any fluctuations in main power supply.
