Ishida CCW-R multihead weigher

Faster weight calculation makes Ishida R weighers ideal for multi-part blending.
Ishida's new CCW-R Series weighers feature exclusive ground-breaking technology that is delivering high-performance returns for our customers.
  • More weigh heads are included in each calculation.
  • 16 times as many weight combinations are available per calculation.
  • Three suitable combinations are available for selection for each weighment instead of one.
  • 16,000 combinations are sorted in 5 milliseconds, about one fifth the time that the previous M-Series weighers took to process 1000+ combinations.


From one panel, you can control other equipment, monitor live video of incoming product, and communicate by e-mail.
If we've lost you in the details, then just consider the results. Faster, more accurate, and more efficient weighing that will improve your bottom line. And operators will appreciate the new R-Series easy-to-use Windows XP interface that sustains operating efficiency with self-setting controls.
  • Advanced AFD, an automatic control system that maintains consistent product feed to the weigher, reduces operator involvement.
  • Pulse Width Modulation automatically tunes feeder vibration amplitude for optimal product flow from the dispersion and radial feeders to the pool hoppers.
  • Automatic timing settings control hopper opening and closing profiles, maximizing product transfer speeds for the highest possible filling speeds.

Our packaging demonstration centers in Lititz, PA and Hayward, CA are equipped and ready to demonstrate the speed, easy operation and unbeatable accuracy of Ishida's new CCW-R multihead weigher running your company's product, and the increased productivity and profitablity it can generate.

LCD touch screen control panelThe superior performance of Ishida's new DACS-WN Series checkweighers can be further enhanced with a color LCD touch screen control panel that expands data reporting capabilities and simplifies operator interface for higher production efficiency

  • A built-in camera takes and loads product photos onto the operating screen to assist operators in making error-free product preset selections.
  • Production statistics, weighing data and setting parameters are stored on a compact flash card for easy download to a PC and detailed data analysis.
  • Compatible with the Ishida Total Packaging System (ITPS) network, the panel integrates the checkweigher with other Ishida equipment for further control and analysis of the entire packaging line's performance.

The DACS-WN Series of Ishida checkweighers includes eight models, in both standard and waterproof designs, to handle the broadest range of product sizes and checkweighing application requirements.

A good control system maximizes the output and efficiency of a production line, generating cost savings and increased profit. As both a machinery manufacturer and a systems integrator, Heat and Control has a unique understanding of how one machine's control logic can influence the total effectiveness of the line's control package.

Our Controls Group, located in Arlington, WA, designs all of our individual machine controls with control packages in mind. Machine performance, intuitive operator interface, and ease of maintenance are our highest design priorities. By researching the overall scheme of the production process, we augment these designs by developing control packages and data collection/reporting plans that benefit the entire plant.

The Arlington facility also engineers control systems for machines and processes used outside the food industry. Through such projects, we have more opportunities to identify the latest innovations in systems integration and control engineering that can further improve the performance of your Heat and Control food processing or packaging lines.
