Extra-heavy check-weigh machines

One company at Pack Expo, Automatic Packaging Machinery Inc., Norcross, Ga., focuses on computer weighers built to minimize vibration while maximizing accuracy, said general manager John Elegreet.

A.P.M. weighers use an Ethernet-based system to allow customers quick recovery time if something goes wrong with the machine. Elegreet said his company tries to take the concept of “proprietized parts” out of the equation, allowing its customers the ability to go to about any hardware store to obtain replacement parts.

The company’s computer weighers cost $85,000 to $110,000, Elegreet said.
