Triple protection from single machine

05 September 2014

Precision weighing technology is an important element of a meat processing operation, with the capability to reduce give-away remaining a significant contributor to profitability. 

Now, with the introduction of the Sparc Cerberus 420 from Interfood Technology, automated checkweighing can be delivered, along with metal detection and accurate labelling, all from a single machine.

By adopting automated processes and removing or minimising the need for human intervention, a repeatable and consistent product process can be achieved, driving increased efficiency, security and control of product quality.  The Cerberus 420 can detect contaminants, weigh the product and also verify the pack label details: a three-pronged approach which provided the stimulus for the naming of the high speed pack inspection machine, Cerberus being the three-headed dog from Greek mythology who guards the underworld.

Designed, engineered and constructed to the highest standards, a characteristic of the Cerberus 420 is its flexibility and accuracy of weighing and pack rejection, making it suited to all weighing and labelling applications. It can accommodate all pack formats in sizes up to 300mm x 300mm x 100mm.  Fast and accurate rejection of out-of-tolerance or contaminated packs into dedicated lockable stations is provided by an in-line, servo driven reject system which removes the need for compressed air, offering potential savings of up to £4,000 a year on running costs compared with machines based on compressed air operation.  Inaccuracies in product labelling are identified via the Sparceye continuous top and bottom label inspection. Clean down is performed without the need for any tools and with quick release connections and belts to minimise downtime.

The Cerberus 420 can be supplied with integrated data collection software to provide instant live OEE data and reporting directly to production, QA personnel. Cerberus 420 is compliant to all existing COPs as standard, with its full reject integrity features and offering speeds of up to 200ppm.
