HANDTMANN’s new WS 910 weighing system makes its debut at IFFA, the trade fair for the meat industry (4-9 May 2019, Frankfurt am Main) at Hall 12, Stand A80.
With the multifunctional VF 800 series vacuum fillers, the company has developed intelligent portioning and control modules for modern production processes. These function, among other things, as the central control module for networking and synchronisation with other process modules, such as the WS 910.
According to Handtmann, manufacturers can cut cost when they use the WS 910 weighing system since minced meat products can be guaranteed accurate-to-the-gram weights.
The WS 910 weighing system with the SB 912 sorting belt is always part of a turnkey solution, integrated into a production line for process monitoring. The main functions comprise production control, monitoring and weight control, as well as ejecting under- or overweight portions after the forming and portioning process. The weighing system also forms part of the Handtmann LineControl concept. On the one hand, this ensures user-friendliness (product selection via the vacuum filler only; setting of the scales and communication then automatically in the line), and, on the other hand, process reliability due to increased line efficiency.
Together, the WS 910 weighing system and SB 912 sorting belt eliminate the need for rework, and results in savings in packaging, resources and handling. Fewer product ejections due to weights accurate to the gram further boost the production line’s efficiency and production output. Reducing give-away to a minimum by providing 100 % control through reference weighing of each portion, also helps achieve significant cost savings.
There will be live demonstrations of the new weighing system in a line solution for the production of minced meat products – from filling to depositing into the packaging at Hall 12, Stand A80.
