Automated solution cuts produce packing costs

17 April 2017

For produce packers looking to increase line speeds while reducing manning levels Aja’s high speed pre-seal checkweigher and re work station is able to weigh automatically to Average ‘e’ or Nett Minimum Weight legislation. 

Pre filled punnets are loaded onto the high speed line which feeds directly into the Aja C80 checkweighing system. Many punnets will be within specification so  will go straight through the system to the top sealer. Any under or over weight packs outside of the Average ‘e’ Weight range or Nett Minimum tolerances are diverted across the Aja Slide Carrier Platen Rejector to the return re-work conveyor where just one or two operators are needed to offload the packs.

They adjust and correct using Aja high speed DP under/over traffic light scales which are linked into the C80 checkweigher Average Weight software to ensure the legal average and minimum or zero overfill is maintained. The corrected punnets are then placed back into the line.

Every C80 pre seal checkweighing solution is customised to meet the demands of the application. A touchscreen PC operator interface, running Windows 10 ensures user familiarity with easy connectivity via Ethernet or wifi to remote office based PC’s or servers, enabling archiving and a total overview of compliance and management data.
