Montreal-based WeighPack Systems Inc. has introduced a multi-head weigher for blending and mixing uses.
Its PrimoCombi weigher has 24 heads and is designed to automatically weigh, mix and dispense two, three and four products at a time. The combination scale can blend vegetables, fruits, frozen foods, confections, snack foods and other items, according to a news release.
The weigher’s software, Primo360, uses a Windows-based operating system with features including Skype, online support through LogMeIn.com and Crystal Reports for custom reporting. It supports English, Spanish and French.
PrimoCombi has an open frame design allowing access to components. Tool-less buckets, chutes, pans and a center hopper facilitate cleaning.
Individual chutes beneath each of the 24 heads eliminate product spiraling according to WeighPack, which is part of the Paxiom Group along with CombiScale Inc. and Eagle Packaging LLC. A panel housing core electronics is remotely located from the scale, preventing water exposure during wash-down.
WeighPack also offers fillers, baggers, wrappers, conveyors, case erecting and robotic palletizing.
