Mettler-Toledo Garvens designed a multiple-lane checkweigher to provide food and pharmaceutical manufacturers with a high-precision weighing and sorting system to facilitate faster production times and increased output. Whereas standard applications can only be configured with 2 to 4 lanes, the Multi-Lane Checkweigher has the capacity to inspect up to 1500 packaged products per minute on up to 16 lanes for correct weight and fill levels, enabling manufacturers to boost throughput speeds. In addition to expanding capacities, the Multi-lane Checkweigher feedback control function minimizes product weight errors through proactive feedback per lane or a combined feedback for all lanes to keep filler heads properly adjusted. This means adverse fill level trends can be corrected before they become a problem, minimising costly overfilling or unlawful underfilling in order to comply with metrology legislation, such as the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID) based on OIML guidelines.
