Checkweighers or in-motion scales; sometimes referred to as conveyor scales are machines that dynamically weigh your products as they move across the belt; increasing production and inspecting 100% of your product "on the fly" or in motion. Just some of the applications include weighing to make sure you have the proper amount of "fill" in the package for eliminating the under weights by automatically rejecting them from the line. Check weighers can also automatically remove the over weights from the line saving you money on cutting down on the amount of "give-a-way" product. Many industries are heavily fined for improper weight and complete truckloads can be rejected because one bag might have been underweight. Inspection by weight can also identify missing items in a kitting application, sorting items by weight, and identifying "mis-made" parts by weight detection are other common applications. Checkweighers also capture and provide data for production reports, feed back loops to fillers for proper trending; and complete statistical packages for monitoring multiple scales in a production facility real time from one computer.
Not all checkweighers are the same. Call us today so we can tell you how our checkweighers reduce the cost of ownership over other makes making them the best value in the industry today. All models from case weighers to high precision production scales
accurate to a fraction of a gram can be made in stainless steel washdown, as well as explosion proof.
Very simple and easy to use.
This High Speed belt conveyor scale checkweigher meets the demands of production line quality control for
products weighing between 10 g to 10 kg. This in-motion checkweigher offers quick and simple operation with easy changeover from product to product. The high-speed checkweigher is built solid enough to handle virtually every product in any environment, yet is responsive in both accuracy and performance. The touch screen controller provides easy to read menus with both English and Spanish in full sentences for better comprehension. It also runs a complete self-diagnostics with errors described on-screen. The optional Statistical Process Reporting (STPR) package prints unit weights and reports on standard size paper for analysis. Also available is our StatPak-PC software package that collects and saves data to a database and is able to print out
reports to a customer's requirements. Multi-Lane Checkweighers Multi-lane versions of this checkweigher are also available. Designed for flexible and hard-to-handle products, the Small package Checkweigher uses 1” diameter conveyor rollers for the smoothest possible transition of product across the scale at rates in excess of 200 units per minute. Networked servomotors on each conveyor provide responsive performance, with conveyor speeds up to 250 feet per minute. Conveyor frames and belts can be re-moved without tools, allowing thorough cleaning and easy maintenance. Conveyors are interchangeable and include many commonly available parts. The Sonic 350 checkweigher is designed for in-motion weighing of semi-rigid or flexible products weighing from a few grams to 10 kilograms with accuracies of up to +/- 0.1 gram. This in-line checkweigher weighs products of virtually any shape or size (up to 18 inches in length). Unlike other checkweigher systems, this system utilizes a single calibration to provide accurate and repeatable weights over the range of the scale’s capacity. There is no need for multipass dynamic calibrations every time product sizes or weights are changed, simply enter the new parameters.
Automatically remove underweight or overweight packages and put a stop to fines and rejected loads.
Kitting applications to insure that all of the parts and pieces are in the kit.

High Speed Checkweigher
The Intermediate High Speed Checkweigher is designed for institutional and packaged food manufacturing, specialty chemical, and corrosive or caustic product industries. This in-motion checkweigher weighs products from 1 lb - 110 lbs (0.5 kg to 50 kg) with conveyor speeds in excess of 250 feet per minute, and production rates up to 60 units per minute. It is available in stainless steel or powder coated mild steel and is designed to meet the demanding production needs for an easy-to-clean, low maintenance, yet highly accurate in-motion scale. For products that are within the 1 lb to 110 lbs range, the Intermediate is the perfect choice. This checkweigher is a simple, easy to use, rugged, yet highly accurate production scale. Designed for flexible and hard-to-handle products, this checkweigher weighs products of virtually any shape or size. Examples of containers are boxes, cans, bottles, rigid shrink-wrapped packages, or flexible packages. The 4693i Intermediate Checkweigher features a food-grade belt driven by a newly developed motorized head pulley and food-grade rated drive components. Its unique load cell system is designed to provide a highly accurate and reliable weight each and every time. It also allows quick access for thorough cleaning and easy maintenance. The 4693i offers washdown rated bearings, belt and drive components. The checkweigher’s simple and clean design minimizes maintenance and the number of parts that can potentially wear out. Unlike other checkweigher systems, use a single calibration to provide accurate and repeatable weights over the range of the scale’s capacity. There is no need for multipass dynamic calibrations every time product sizes or weights are changed, simply enter the new parameters. A wide variety of weigh station conveyor lengths and widths are available to meet your specific application needs. Metering, pacing, reject, and material handling conveyors are available as well. Its standard I/O will interface to your new or existing metal detector. You can control up to three reject devices for low/high/metal reject outputs. The controller provides easy to read menus with both English and Spanish in full sentences for better comprehension. It even runs a complete self-diagnostics with errors described onscreen. The optional Statistical Process Reporting (STPR) package prints unit weights and reports on standard size paper for analysis. Also available is our StatPak-PC software package that collects and saves data to a database and is able to print out reports to a customer's requirements.
Items compatible with the 4693i include paints,adhesives, insecticides, bagged and boxed sugars, raw meats, fruits, vegetables, chemicals, fertilizers, and caustic products.
Bagged Product Three Belt Checkweigher
with Drop-nose Reject
3-belt checkweigher with drop-nose reject
"Put an end to fines and rejected loads"
Designed for the Produce and Citrus Industry our 3-conveyor scale system for checkweighing bagged products is comprised of an in-feed acceleration belt to pull a gap between bags, a scale conveyor, and a drop-nose style reject conveyor that will discharge off-weight bags, open bags and loose product into a bin or take-a-way conveyor located below the conveyor. This high speed checkweigher system provides you everything you need to properly space, weigh and reject bagged products and includes a superior style reject device. Discharging product "in-line" eliminates loose potatoes, as an example, from rolling around on the conveyors, or jams caused by product or bags sticking under a pusher style reject. A quick single static calibration, done once a month or so, insures you are properly weighing your complete range of products. Conveyor speeds do not need to be changed when running your different size bags. The operator simply presses a button to select a new recipe (change from one product to another) and they are done. Very simple, and very accurate! Proven performer that is in more potato packing sheds than any other!
