Ishida’s latest multihead weigher range has received an award for innovation from one of the fruit and vegetable industry’s leading exhibitions.
Macfrut, an international exhibition dedicated to the fruit and vegetable supply chain, celebrates process and product innovation with their Oscar Macfrut Awards. Judged by a panel of experts and authorities in the agri-food sector, the Awards recognise the need to acknowledge and promote initiatives throughout the sector in terms of technical improvements, cost reductions and consumer satisfaction.
The Ishida RV range of weighers was rewarded for its numerous advancements to an already-established technology that enables the equipment to achieve 15% faster speeds than previous models while still delivering one of the highest levels of accuracy among any multihead weigher with close-to-zero giveaway.
Key features of the Ishida RV series multihead weighers include an improved user interface with an ultra-fast touch screen that ensures quicker and easier set up, and enhanced security features such as fingerprint verification access. The CCW-RV can also be operated remotely via wireless access with tablets, androids and smart phones.
The IP67-rated hygienic design incorporates six degree sloping, self-draining feeder covers and a nine degree sloping, self-draining main body, which minimise bacteria traps and allow faster and easier cleaning to increase uptime. A new power management system provides three power modes (Full, Half and Eco), depending on operating conditions, helping deliver 20% lower power consumption when compared to the previous market-leading Ishida R series.
The CCW-RV maintains Ishida’s proven durability, with its robust construction enabling the weigher to operate reliably even in difficult environments.
Ishida Weighing & Packaging Systems is available in Australia and New Zealand exclusively from Heat and Control.
