New 600 Gram Checkweigher

In an effort to help companies improve their quality assurance and critical control point processes, A&D Inspection offers its newest Checkweigher - the AD-4961-600-1224.

The Checkweigher features a smaller footprint, making the machine easier to integrate into an existing manufacturing process. In addition, the increased product throughput of up to 400 pieces per minute (PPM) makes it more efficient. "End users will have the ability to increase quality and reduce production costs by safeguarding against underweight and overweight packages," said a company spokesperson.

This Checkweigher features the following key benefits:

  • A newly designed digital load cell and a high-speed processing module, allowing it to deliver a higher level of precision weighing and measurement at .08 g
  • Standard digital inputs and outputs to provide enhanced user flexibility, allowing for HMI interfacing or the connection of external devices, as well as future expansion to the system
  • A high-visibility touch-panel color LCD screen with a user-friendly interface, including an audio guidance support function
  • Easy upload of product images to make product identification efficient
  • Ability to reach speeds of up to 400 PPM
  • Enhanced protection from dust and water to IP65 standards
  • A modular design, which allows for quick installation or relocation and simple maintenance
  • Dual channel air jet rejectors allowing a customer to sort overweight and underweight products.

In all, the AD-4961-600-1224 Checkweigher has four main units, including an in-feed conveyor, a weighing conveyer, a control unit and a base unit for a total system length of 606 millimeters or 24". Users also do not need to wait for a service engineer to respond to a system shutdown, since they are able to replace any unresponsive modules and reduce potential downtime.

"This new design allows us to serve end users across many different industries that require faster speeds as is common in cosmetics, beverage, canning and many others," said Daniel Cannistraci, Product Manager for A&D Inspection. "Our customers have yet another option to manage internal quality assurance standards and critical control point issues."
