Multihead weigher helps increase OEE

03 November 2022

Ishida has launched its 11th generation of multihead weighers. The new CCW-AS range has been designed to offer high weighing performance to increase Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), particularly for more challenging products such as sticky items, while at the same time delivering significant energy reduction benefits. 

The CCW-AS weigher is said to provide increases in productivity, enhanced hygienic design and simultaneously addresses environmental concerns, all combining to maximise profitability in highly competitive markets.

Enhancements have been made to product transportation to the weigh hoppers, with both increased control and power of all feeders, which is especially beneficial in high volume or sticky product applications.

Furthermore, each feeder channel contains an integrated optical feedback system that uses sensors to monitor product depth in real time. This allows both the feed amplitude and time to be independently adjusted on each vibrator ensuring the perfect amount of product is conveyed to the weigh hoppers. 

The result of these enhancements are higher efficiency rates with more hoppers available for each combination to deliver even higher speeds and greater accuracy, which in turn reduce giveaway and improve production output.

Additionally, an advanced vision monitoring system, with multiple cameras, can be positioned at the top of the weigher to monitor the product feed so that production efficiency can be maintained and further enhanced. Live camera footage can be viewed from the colour touch screen HMI operator screen. 

From a hygienic perspective a slanted weigh drive unit cover and main body frame also enhance cleaning efficiency, thus reducing labour, increasing uptime and saving on cleaning consumables.

Despite its enhanced performance, the Ishida CCW-AS is said to deliver a 20% reduction in energy consumption compared to previous models. Noise levels have also been further reduced with the weigher around 16db quieter when operating at full speed.
