Check Weigher Manufacturers
A checkweigher is an automatic machine for checking the weight of packaged commodities. It is normally found at the off going end of a production process and is used to ensure that the weight of a pack of the commodity is within specified limits. Any packs that are outside the tolerance are taken out of line automatically. his is not only required by law, but also beneficial for manufacturers to help them reach greater efficiency at lower costs.
The right application of weight control techniques can allow the food production and packaging manufacturer to virtually eliminate consumer complaints about underweight packages. Well-crafted and maintained checkweigher systems can also help the manufacturer significantly reduce costs related to overweight packages by decreasing the average fill weight through improved accuracy.
Typically, a checkweigher consist of three belts:
- An infeed belt that may change the speed of the package and to bring it up or down to a speed required for weighing.
- A weigh belt. This is typically mounted on a weight transducer which can typically be a strain-gauge load cell.
- A reject belt that provides a method of removing an out-of-tolerance package from the conveyor line. checkweighers provide feedback to their operators using either visual and/or audible signals for the rejected packages.

FOOD SAFETY SOLUTIONS
Food safety consists of the analysis and control of biological, chemical or physical hazards in the food production and supply chain. There are many different inspection systems that analyze the food products for different types of hazards. With X-ray inspection systems you can detect the most hazardous physical contaminants and remove them from your production line before they get to the consumers.
With Mekitec’s food safety solutions you can also inspect the overall quality of your food products, such as integrity, shape or missing content. This offers a lot more value and benefits to food producers. The consumer complaints and reclaims will decrease significantly after they implement an X-ray system to their production line.
We offer the best value X-ray systems with excellent performance, user-friendliness and small footprint to make them fit in every production line.
Our food safety solutions serve most of the food industries but are focused in the inspection of processed and packaged products. Mekitec’s X-ray inspection systems are a perfect fit for such industries as snack, bakery, confectionery, dairy and ready-to-eat, among many others.
