What is the Importance of combination multihead scales in the Food Industry?

  • 2022-05-27

The quantitative weighing section of the combination scale is the key equipment for the automated production of food factories. In the past, my country relied on imports from Japan, Australia and other countries. Due to the high price, the wide application and popularization of the computer combination scale was hindered. The production of our combination scale and the high-grade technology of the combination scale make the computer multi head combination scales, which was originally regarded as a "noble product", no longer the patent of large enterprises, and more domestic enterprises that pursue high speed and high efficiency. , have eliminated the quantitative weighing and packaging production lines that cost materials and labor in the past, such as container-type or all-manual, and armed themselves with high-tech, higher-automation combination scale quantitative weighing and packaging systems. Let's take a look at the importance of combination multihead scales in the food industry:

The multi-head computer combination scale originated in Japan. Because the multi-head scale has good performance in terms of accuracy and speed, it has been rapidly and widely used in the food industry. The multi-head scale can weigh three types of materials: block, granular and strip. The weighing of the block material can reflect the advantages of the multi-head scale, which solves the measurement error caused by the large weight of the block material. bigger problem. The performance of the multi-head computer combination scale in terms of packaging accuracy and speed is greatly improved compared with the traditional measurement method. At present, the weighing error of the multi-head scale is generally set as the positive deviation of 0.5-1.0g (the weighing range is 500g) in the industry. At the same time, because the multi-head scale uses a computer for calculation, the combination speed (ie weighing speed) is effectively improved. A multi-head scale with ten heads can weigh up to 70 times per minute, and a multi-head scale with 14 heads can be used. The weighing speed Up to 120 times/min.

A candy factory in Guangdong is a large-scale enterprise specializing in the production of various types of candy. Before 2004, the traditional measurement method (manual measurement) was used, and its speed could only reach 25 times/min. The average error value of single-bag weighing was greater than 4g, that is, Each bag of candy (40g) is packed with at least 4g of candy due to inaccurate weighing. Based on the annual output of 4,000 tons, the company lost nearly 400 tons of candy every year. In order to solve the problem of inaccurate product measurement, the company tried to buy a multi-head scale. After using the candy multi head weigher, the company sets the actual weighing error value to about 1g, and the average error is 0.3-0.6g, that is, the weighing error loss per bag of potato chips (40s) is reduced by more than 3 grams compared to when the multi-head scale is not used. It has been confirmed through cost accounting that the multi-head scale has recovered all the investment in less than half a year, and now the company has fully updated the multi-head scale in the factory.
