Minebea Intec is now offering an intelligent assembly kit for the integration of checkweighing solutions into machines and installations, the company announced.

The OEM weighing kit contains all the essential components for constructing a dynamic checkweigher: a weighing table consisting of conveyer belt, SG load cell and motor; a feed and discharge belt for conveying products, and the complete operating and display unit, including software. The weighing kit therefore enables reliable integrity and individual weight checking.

The OEM weighing kit guarantees precise weighing results and high processing speeds. Under optimum conditions, the checkweigher is able to achieve a standard deviation of ≥0.1 g. Among other things, this is ensured by the SG load cell. This was originally used in Minebea Intec’s Econus checkweigher, which has achieved global success. The sturdy construction enables the Econus to achieve a throughput of up to 120 items per minute. The operating and display unit contains applications for individual checkweighing and integrity checks, as well as trend control. This means that packaged products be checked, and filling quantities optimized. The OEM/Integrator can choose from four different belt widths, four load ranges and two running directions, to create the ideal assembly kit for their in-line checkweigher, as per their individual requirements.

“The OEM weighing kit has been reduced to the bare essentials. It enables the customer to contribute their own knowledge and skills”, explains Stefanie Dahmen, Global Product Manager Inspection at Minebea Intec.
