Wipotec’s HC-A-EX checkweigher is designed for precision checkweighing in manufacturing environments where a mix of gases or flammable substances brings moderate risk for explosion incidents. The machine meets requirements for ATEX, an EU Directive mandating safeguards in these production scenarios. Among other features, the HC-A-EX accomplishes this by nickel-coating all conveyor belts, which helps diminish adverse conductivity.

Specializing in cans and other aerosol containers, the modular HC-A-EX can handle more than 300 items/min. In a niche where container weights can be exceedingly light, the unit is capable of exacting checkweighing via Wipotec’s precision Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) technology, which enables extremely short settling times to deliver fast, accurate and repeatable weighing results. The HC-A-EX is equipped with a wide range of options, including lateral side grip conveyors or separation of rotary star wheels from separating screws, as well as several ejection and control technology features.

Wipotec also debut the SC-S 5020 X-ray scanner specifically designed for leak detection in filled and sealed glass bottles and jars used in food and beverage applications. In addition to detecting micro-leaks as tiny as 0.1mm, the unit can provide foreign body detection, fill level check, and confirmation of proper screw cap or lid closure. The system enables optimum product handling – even for tall and/or slender containers – at throughput rates up to 60,000 products/hr.SC-S 5020 X-ray scannerSC-S 5020 X-ray scanner

Easily integrated into existing filling lines without the need for opening an additional transport route, the SC-S 5020 features ejectors capable of sorting faulty products into lockable rejection bins, or conveying them upright into a sort lane. Like all Wipotec X-ray scanners, the machine comes with a user-friendly operator interface highlighted by a 15 in. color touchscreen that displays real-time inspection statistics.
