Accurate weight equals improved profitability

23 June 2018

Accurate weighing is an essential factor in so many food processing lines, none more so than in fresh meat processing and production environments.

A modular grading system from Interfood has been designed specifically to provide accurate weighing of various sizes and weights of food products as they are transported across a single weigh-conveyor. For applications requiring salting and curing, there is also a specific depositing system which automates the hand salting and curing process for bacon, offering loss in weight depositing while maintaining the all-important quality and improving accuracy.

A central feature of the systems is the company’s Mag-drive technology which features interchangeable beds, a design which has no exposed cables or motors/drives, helping ensure good levels of food hygiene. Gaining access to the underside of the conveyor and drive areas is also simple, to aid cleaning, maintenance and inspection. Offering speeds of up to 200 parts per minute, the systems are designed to help maximise efficiency. An all-electric operation, with no need for compressed air also helps keep operational costs low. There is also the option of live data collection software, providing batch statistical date from the weigh station.
