One Weigher for Multiple Products Saves Cost and Floorspace
A company needed large bone-in chicken breast packaged in 10 lb. bags for one customer and small 8 oz. packages of tenders for another. The choices seemed to be sacrificing accuracy and speed because running large and small product peices can't be done efficiently on one machine, or getting separate packaging lines which would require more investment than budgeted and more floorspace than existed.
Ishida's big bucket Millennium weigher.
Ishida's big bucket weigher provided the versatility to run high speeds and large products on the same line using only one weigher. Each product was weighed at its size-specific maximum speed and changeover was quick. One packaging line for all products reduced equipment cost and saved valuable floorspace in the packaging room.
Waterproof construction and hoppers with no external springs reduced cleaning costs. And all product contact parts could be removed without tools to minimize cleaning time. Ishida's unique digital signal processing and vibration filtering systems made it the fastest, most accurate weigher available.
