A conveyor scale simply acquires the weight. This weight can then be stored on the scale or sent to another device.
A checkweigher will acquire the weight, compare the weight against an upper and lower limit, and then take an action. Just a few examples of actions are illuminate a light, stop a conveyor or divert the product off the line for rework (most popular).
No. Stopping the conveyor for each product would significantly increase component wear & tear, and reduce the throughput.
Even while in motion our NTEP certified scale and algorithm will accurately determine the weight of the weight of the product.
Most of the time, No. A checkweigher is primarily used to validate how well a package, or container, was filled upstream. The upstream scale, or filling machine, needs to be NTEP.
Yes to both. We offer RS-232 (serial) and Ethernet communication as standard. You can see the database being populated or export the data after a finished run. (Ethernet IP option is also available.)
An inline checkweigher can weigh product in the conveyor line without having to pull the product off of the line and place it on a scale. This allows 100% product weight sampling.
Innovative In-line Checkweigher Design Elements
Single drive design virtually eliminates the harmonics that can result when you have dual drives (one on each conveyor end). Harmonics often develop when motor speeds are not precisely matched. The result is internal scale movements that can significantly affect weighing accuracy.
It took years to figure out, but we finally came up with a single load cell design. The result is a scale that is more reliable and less cost. The reduced cost part is obvious, but what about the reliability? Most scales have 4 load cells (one of each corner), so when one load cell fails, the entire scale is out of commission. Having a single load cell design significantly reduces the chances of overall load cell failure.
Since we only have one load cell, we can reduce cost by eliminating the junction box.
Moment forces need to be considered with a single load cell design. VBS has engineered a unique multi-angled bracing that consistently transfers weight to the middle, where the load cell is located.
