Our weighing and filling machines administer the mechanics to produce package quality and operational success. Whether you’re looking for a 14 lane combination scale, or a scale used for specific products, we have the perfect weighing and filling machines for your operation.
GENTLE SCALE FOR FRUIT
The Bison is a programmable 14 lane combination scale capable of high work rates with precision in making fixed weights of product. It gently weighs fruit and accurately fills clamshells or punnets. The 5 discharge belts are bi-directional so you can run two different pack styles on both sides of the scale. It integrates with our denester for seamless flow of punnets and fruit for multiple pack weights and styles. Commonly used with peaches, nectarines, kiwis, plums, tomatoes, avocados, etc.
The Thor is a semi-automatic combination scale used for odd shaped products, or for products that cannot be fed mechanically through a scale infeed. Product is placed directly into the 14 hoppers and the Thor computes the best selection from the loads to produce a precise combination to match the desired weight. The combined product is discharged onto 2 opposing soft wave belts and deposited into a tray or punnet. The Thor is a simple and economical solution for weighing those difficult products and can be integrated with a wide range of packaging equipment like flow wrap machinery or tray-sealers. The Thor is useful for asparagus, green onions, leeks, grapes, etc.
The A series automatic scales are available in different configurations; they can be equipped with 9, 12, or 16 vibrating channels and can create fixed-weight packs. The “A” series scales can be combined with different outfeed systems and packaging equipment. The ultra-gentle handling makes it perfect for products like kiwis, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines, apples, and avocados
Ultra-Gentle Scale for Delicate Fruits
The Velvet is an extremely gentle automatic scale designed specifically for use with very delicate fruit such as apples, pears or other soft fruit. It has 16 weighing lanes and 4 discharge lanes, and like the Bison can have bi-directional feeding of the discharge lanes to either side of the scale. Also like the Bison, the Velvet can store and recall multiple recipes for packages for a quick and easy changeover. One or two denesters can be integrated on either side of the scale.
