Automated Checkweighing Technology Improves Line Efficiency and Compliance for Asian Manufacturers
New Features for Mettler-Toledo Garvens’ CK Checkweigher Enhance Flexibility and User Interface
Giesen, Germany 15 May 2012 – Mettler-Toledo Garvens has equipped its CK Checkweigher with new software and a new Human Machine Interface (HMI) to simplify operator use and provide greater flexibility for food and beverage manufacturing lines in Asia. The new HMI is easier to navigate for production line operators and facilitates product changeovers for enhanced efficiency. Ideal for heavy loads after final packaging, the CK Checkweigher’s sensitive weighing capabilities and high throughput speeds enable small to medium size manufacturers to automate food and beverage production while enhancing regulatory compliance.
The machine’s new HMI terminal features a bright, multi-line Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD), making it easier to read. The upgraded terminal now offers five soft keys to simplify use of the software; each key can be programmed as a shortcut to one of 25 product memories. The addition of enhanced three-level password protection and configurable error logging provide added security and facilitate due diligence. The advanced CK Checkweigher can accurately weigh up to 80 packs per minute with a maximum load of 100 kilograms.
The sturdy design of the CK Checkweigher makes it ideal for use in harsh environments, ensuring optimum weighing accuracy regardless of ambient temperature and humidity. Its compact footprint makes the CK Checkweigher easy to install and use for operations with limited space. The machine can be easily and quickly configured to meet diverse production line needs, and new connectivity features enable seamless integration with product inspection systems.
“Food and beverage manufacturers in Asia are increasingly looking for ways to enhance line efficiency and automate their processes, while remaining flexible to accommodate fast-changing consumer demands,” said Kerstin Bernhart, Marketing Manager, Mettler-Toledo Garvens. “The CK Checkweigher offers a solution to enable Asian brand owners to expand production with minimal disruption and enhance security and due diligence”.
The CK Checkweigher is available in five models with different throughput speeds and weight capacities. The machine offers optional individual pusher or swing gate rejection systems for fully automated removal of out-of-tolerance products. The CK Checkweigher can also be adapted for different line heights as well as additional infeed and outfeed conveyors, depending on production line needs.
