The system consists of an infeed conveyor a weigh conveyor and a discharge conveyor with machine-mounted reject device. The infeed conveyor is designed to accelerate products to provide the proper spacing for weighing. The weigh conveyor weighs and classifies the product into a customer-defined weight zone and transfers the product to the discharge conveyor.
