The "Posiweigh" is designed for ease of operation and can be supplied in single units for semi automatic use (hand-presented bags or containers) or in a multiple format to link with automatic packaging machinery.
Simple to operate, the machine is set to a pre-determined pack (target) weight, then the bulk product is loaded into an infeed hopper. Using a vibration mechanism, the product enters the weigh pan, where the system monitors the weight. Once 80% of the target weight has been achieved, the system switches to a dribble feed for the final 20%, thus ensuring optimum accuracy.
When the weigher has "made weight", the product is discharged through specially made outlet chutes designed to suit your specific packaging arrangements.
Various configurations are available, covering a weigh range from as little as 50g to as much as 18kg., at speeds of up to 20 weighings per minute per weigh head (depending on flow characteristics).
Our control systems incorporate the latest in "PLC" (programmable Logic Controller) technology, making it easy for the operator to set and use.
