Checkweighers tailored to the requirements of dry and wet food processing operations

11 July 2016

Checkweighers are highly precise measuring instruments that have become an integral part of today‘s industrial manufacturing processes. Whereas underfilled products may lead to costly recalls and irreparable damage to the reputation, overfilling of products will have a negative effect on the productivity data. The highly precise weight measurement of products is clearly a decisive factor in terms of the quality of dry or wet food production.  

Decades of experience as a supplier of dynamic weighing and inspection systems has provided OCS the knowledge of what criteria are needed to produce a top quality product range. For that reason, checkweighers produced by OCS have the flexibility and the variety of product configurations to enable a perfect customisation for individual application needs.  The checkweighers from OCS possess outstanding technology combined in a hygienic design (from the standard model to the fully hygienic variant), which consistently measures up to the stringent requirements of the food industry.  Beyond pure weight value determination, these checkweighers optimize production processes with robust, high-tech machines that are simple to operate and quick and easy to clean. Outstanding precision is achieved through the use of EMFR Weigh Cell technology from Wipotec.

The HC-M-WD from OCS provides a reliable and robust checkweigher in an innovative, hygienic Wash Down design. This model meets all statutory provisions for the  wet food processing industry like IFS-compliant product control, and HACCP or LMHV/FDA (Food Hygiene Regulations). OCS developed these dynamic checkweighers, which deliver outstanding values in terms of precision and throughput, to be maintenance-free, with stainless servo motors for use in operations with intensive and frequent cleanings. The well-designed performance features of the HC-M-WD model satisfy all cleaning criteria and the most stringent hygienic requirements of the wet food industry.

To maximise product safety, checkweighers manufactured by OCS can be combined in a compact design with additional inspection devices such as metal detectors or x-ray scanners. The HC-M-WD-MDi is a high-tech combination scale and metal detector, together in one compact unit that sets the quality standard in terms of product safety. The entire system is controlled via the menu-driven, user-friendly controls of the checkweigher. The central control point conveniently manages the product parameters, protocols, and production statistics. Naturally, you will find all of the conventional performance characteristics of metal detectors (for example, product tracking, compensating for the product effect, FPV compliance checks, etc.), provided in the HC-M-WD-MDi. This model is a high-precision weighing instrument and fully integrated metal detector all in one compact unit.

OCS is among the leading suppliers of comprehensive inspection systems worldwide. Our globally recognised cutting edge technology and our comprehensive product range of ultra-modern, high performance X-ray scanners give you the confidence of knowing you are in the best possible position in terms of quality assurance. Together with you, we create the foundation for sustained customer loyalty. X-ray scanners from OCS support the efficient design of quality assurance systems on the basis of different standards. These high-tech machines detect foreign bodies made of metal, glass, stone and plastics of different densities while checking your products for completeness, correct form and fill quantities. 

The SC-V model represents the most advanced inspection technology. It combines reliable detection of product impurities by means of the high performance X-ray scanner with additional optical control systems developed in-house at OCS. These control systems check the information as it appears on the products (ingredients, nutritional values, expiry date) for correctness and a flawless appearance regarding the proper positioning and readability of all labels and seals. Both inspection units – X-ray system and optical control – are combined in one space-saving design.

In addition to the reliable detection of foreign bodies, the SC-V also guarantees the accurate and uniform appearance of your products. The model constitutes an outstanding inspection system that provides maximum safety and prevents costly recalls resulting from product contamination or incorrect labelling. Designed for protection class IP65 with full stainless steel construction, the SC-V system features a balcony design and sloped surfaces that, together with C-shaped product area, enable thorough cleaning quickly and easily. This machine also meets the most stringent standards of hygiene.

The outstanding performance of OCS systems can be experienced first-hand at the showroom in Oxfordshire, with a range of high-quality machinery on display. Or better still, with the use of the specially-designed Demo-Van, OCS can bring its high-tech solutions to customers’ premises for live on-site demonstrations.

The compact weighing and inspection systems from OCS Checkweighers are easily integrated in existing production lines. They are characterised by their safety, durability, and reliability - a practical and perfect technology investment.
