Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery exhibited its new Checkweigher in booth C-4209 at PACK EXPO.
One of the standout features of the new checkweigher is what attendees couldn’t see—no bulky electrical cabinet. The space-saving design allows for the electrical components and cables to be located inside the rails of the frame, reducing the checkweigher’s footprint. The checkweigher is also different in that it can be integrated into both existing filling systems, as well as other machinery, to provide accurate weight measurements.
The Checkweigher comes with improved accuracy, thanks to its use of MFR Technology within the load cell. Providing a higher level of accuracy than strain gauge loadcells, MFR Technology gives better performance with no reading drift.
Other features of the new checkweigher includes tool-less belt removal, and a three-leg base, which makes it easier to level than units with four legs. Being PLC-based means there’s no proprietary controls to worry about, making the machine more user-friendly to operate and calibrate in the field.
