The AutoWeigher from WeighPack Systems Inc., is a linear scale designed for growing companies who are interested in taking the first step toward automation. It allows these companies to increase their productivity and their accuracy while reducing their overall labor costs.
The AutoWeigher is available in two models: AW-1 and AW-9. The AW-1 model can weigh as little as 0.5 oz. up to 2.5 lbs., while the AW-9 can weigh 1 oz. to 10 lbs. Both models allow product to be fed automatically from the hopper along a vibrating pan into a weigh bucket below; when the target weight is reached, the product is then released from a funnel and into a container or bag.
While operating in automatic or semi-automatic mode, the AutoWeigher can achieve speeds of up to 15 cycles per minute. Features of the AutoWeigher include: a tool-less removal of the weigh bucket, hopper and funnel, which help minimize the downtime when cleaning and/or changing the product; a foot pedal for semi-automatic operations; and a large LED display capable of reading in grams or ounces.
