WIPOTEC-OCS to demo innovative revolving, in-motion checkweigher at COSMOPROF North America

Capable of handling up to 400 pieces per minute, the HC-A-IS Checkweigher efficiently helps eliminate reputation-damaging underfills or costly overfills

WIPOTEC-OCS, a leading manufacturer and supplier of precision in-motion weighing, track and trace/anti-counterfeiting solutions and X-Ray scanning equipment, will offer live demonstrations of a novel revolving, in-motion weighing system on 29-31 August in Las Vegas.

At Booth #5087, the company will showcase its HC-A-IS Checkweigher, designed for the precision weighing of often wobbly cylindrical products such as bottles, jars and vials common to the cosmetics sector.

The HC-A-IS Checkweigher utilises WIPOTEC’s signature Electro-Magnetic Force Restoration (EMFR) weigh cells, a next-generation technique that guarantees optimal weighing results even at high line speeds.

The machine features a revolving weighing system that segregates each product, weighs it independently, and returns it to the line, providing exemplary accuracy even at high speeds. The resulting precision helps eliminate reputation-damaging underfills or costly overfills.

The HC-A-IS Checkweigher has a maximum throughput of 400 pieces per minute, and easily fits into existing packaging lines. It is available in flexible rotating star wheel configurations that can weigh one, two, three, or four products at a time.

The machine features a unique ergonomic design that allows the HC-A-IS to be placed in virtually any position adjacent to a packaging line; disconnecting the production line is not necessary, further simplifying the checkweigher’s installation.

The checkweigher features a broad selection of sorting devices and product handling options to meet product-specific requirements. Should one be necessary, WIPOTEC also can custom engineer a made-to-order product handling mechanism. The machine features a 15” touchscreen display for easy, menu-driven operations.

“Precision checkweighers like our HC-A-IS meet needs for elevated quality control in the increasingly competitive cosmetics sector, without sacrificing high throughput,” said Elise Gala, Key Account Manager, Cosmetics & Personal Care for WIPOTEC-OCS.

“We look forward to showcasing the machine’s differentiating, brand-protecting weighing technology at COSMOPROF North America, with interactive demonstrations at our booth occurring regularly throughout the show.”
