Always looking to make the packing experience a better one for its customers, the Montreal-headquartered WeighPack Systems Inc. has recently updated its AutoWeigh scale.

Already one of its most popular products and unable to leave well-enough alone, WeighPack has improved the table-top scale making it now capable of running under full automation or semi-automation.

The AutoWeigher is available in two models: AW-1 (see image above) and AW-9.

The AW-1 model can weigh items as little as 0.5 ounces up to 2.5 pounds, while the AW-9 can weigh 1.0 ounces to 10 pounds.

Both models allow product to be fed automatically from the hopper along a vibrating pan into a weigh bucket below, and when the target weight is reached the product is released from a funnel and into a container or bag.

While operating in automatic or semi-automatic mode, the AutoWeigher can achieve speeds of up to 15 cycles per minute.

Features of the AutoWeigher include: a tool-less removal of the weigh bucket, hopper and funnel which helps minimize the downtime when cleaning and/or changing the product; a foot pedal for semi-automatic operations; and a large LED display capable of reading in grams or ounces.

Simple to operate, easy to move and integrate, and includes a smooth cleaning process, the AutoWeigher is able to be mounted on a table top or floor stand.

The AutoWeigher can weigh a wide range of products such as: poultry, snacks, coffee, rice, nuts, produce, chemicals, powders, pharmaceuticals, hardware and many more.
