WARD Materials Handling Solutions has introduced the second generation LC-Checkweigher with Mettler Toledo JagXtreme high-level weighing terminal.
An Australian designed and built machine, the LC-Checkweigher can weigh check and recognise different products concurrently.
The system is a cost effective way of verifying the weight and integrity of products in large packages, sacks, boxes, bags or bundles from several production lines through the one checkweigher system.
Murray Goulburn uses the LC-Checkweigher to check its 2kg, 2.2kg, 10kg and 20kg curd cheese to an accuracy of ±10g.
The JagXtreme weighing terminal is programmed to checkweigh any of the products in a random order without the need for a barcode reading system to recognise the product.
The LC-Checkweigher is comprised of a four load cell system, sturdy stainless steel chassis suitable for a washdown environment, Mettler Toledo JagXtreme high-level weighing terminal, internal drum motor to minimise maintenance while maximising hygiene, and adjustable belt speed control.
The JagXtreme is an advanced scale terminal, which can be programmed to suit a specific application and can be interfaced to the packing line PLC or networked. Interface options include:
* Allen Bradley RIO.
* ModBus Plus.
* High level discrete output.
* RS232C serial output.
Accuracy range is 10g to 50g depending on conveyor speed, and throughput is up to 60 products a minute. Load capacity is 50kg. Custom variants are built to order for OEM's and system integrators.
