A four-lane throughput checkweigher jointly developed by weighing technology and sorting specialist LIEBEL and VC999 - experts in packaging solution systems - was presented for the first time at IFFA 2013. Unusually, the weighing and measurement technology installed is not covered in any way, in contrast to comparable scales. This innovative design was made possible by HBM‘s EHEDG-certified PW27 load cell. The integrated overload protection of the PW27 – which does not get dirty even with exposed installation – combined with the hygienic and aseptic aspects of the load cell are invaluable features. The system sets new standards in terms of safety, efficiency and reliability.
LIEBEL has been using weighing technology from HBM in its multi-lane scales for six years – especially in scales for large bakeries and producers of frozen pasta goods. This collective positive experience combined with the properties of the PW27 load cell has led the scale manufacturer to equip a multi-lane scale - developed jointly with VC999 - with HBM’s hygienic load cell. The PW27 shows its strengths here, including hygiene, resistance to intensive cleaning and mechanical stress.
