Checkweighing explained

Checkweighing explained, a brief explanation on checkweighing, uses and how they improve process’s.

The automated Measuring instrument which determines the mass of a package or product, usually as it travels along a conveyor that incorporates a weighing device. The mass of each item is recorded and any that fall outside preset values are rejected automatically.

Bizerba precision checkweighers set the highest standards with regard accuracy and reliability. Multiple variants are available offering different protection types, which include wet cleaning or high IP protection systems ideally used for fresh food.  Additionally the systems can be used in combination with inspection systems such as X-ray food systems or metal detection units.

Powered by the powerful BRAIN Software the checkweigher now offers complete food traceability for your food production facility.

Vision inspection systems offer speed, accuracy and the assurance

Vision inspection systems offer speed, accuracy and the assurance. Easily  integrated with weigh price labelling systems. Visually checking labels for accuracy to include positioning and text.

Vision Inspection System – Integration

The Bizerba LabelSecure vision inspection system, easily adapted to existing systems. Used with a standard checkweigher or an inline dynamic checkweigher CWE Maxx for example  or existing conveyor systems.

In addition the performance of this impressive vision inspection system is fantastic. Enabling the user to automatically control the label positioning, label type and materials used.

Furthermore the inspection system will also check the package type and size. Constantly checking the bar codes,labels are positioned correctly set to your own personal criteria. .

Vision Inspection System – Reporting

Consider the In depth reporting that is achieved with the Bizerba BRAIN software process control, statistical reporting on the whole production line managed by applying industry software _statistics.BRAIN. No matter what your production line needs with regard software we have a package to suit you.

Also the software can  manage the entire production process from goods receiving, portion control and goods out. Giving you complete clarity on production with the added layer of protection from your vision inspection system.

You can also centrally archive and report on all data. Recording label position, bar codes, text and label content and label type. The software will interface and integrate with all your dynamic checkweighers. Data import and export available in multiple recognised formats.

Slicing Energy

Slicing Energy Bizerba technology – time to shut down the power-guzzlers

Commercial Slicers, Slicing Energy

Slicing machines that keep running throughout the day and energy-intensive PC scales and checkweighers.  That are not shut down overnight are no rare thing in the retail trade. At a time when everybody is trying to rein in electricity consumption and make financial savings. This makes no economic sense. In the long term, investments in energy-efficient retail solutions can be as worthwhile as the construction of low-energy buildings or the use of solar power.

Bizerba Commercial Scales, Slicing Energy

PC-based scale systems require a certain amount of time to start up and shut down. Since this phase takes too long in the eyes of some employees. Industrial scales often remain switched on overnight. A problem that can easily be solved on the IT side. Wake-on-LAN, a network-based, time-controlled on-and-off function from Bizerba. Automatically shuts down the scales in the evening and starts them up the following morning shortly before work begins. The timer can conveniently be set from the company headquarters. If maintenance or updates are due at night, the machines can be activated from hibernation by the function for the duration of the operation.

Bizerba Commercial Slicer, Slicing Energy

What’s more, PC scales now use flash-based SSD hard disks instead of power-guzzling mechanical hard disks. They are more robust, start up more quickly and consume less energy. Furthermore, LED background lighting in screens is increasingly taking the place of CCFL technologies, which consume a lot of power.

There is further potential for energy saving in converting devises to alternating current, without having to accept a loss of performance here. Modern slicing machines intelligently adapt their engine performance to the product being sliced.  Where the product is hard the performance is scaled up, whilst an easily-sliced product requires less engine power. The full torque is not required and the energy consumption remains low.

Many machines are running idle most of the day, yet consume energy at a rate of 100 percent, regardless of whether they are slicing or not. Current Bizerba devices require around 45 percent less energy than conventional machines. In addition, they barely give off any heat, so the food in the storage area does not heat up as much and stays fresh for longer.
