Compact electronic bagging scale for open mouth bags

November 3, 2009

The innovative new weigh model is designed with the seed count packaging trend in mind. It takes the guesswork out of calculating the correct target weight in open mouth bags with various seed counts including the popular 120,000 or 140,000 seeds. The operator can enter the variables into the controller and the scale will automatically set the target weight and set points accordingly. The three entries required are: Sample Seed Count, Sample Weight and Seeds Per Bag. The data is converted into the proper weight needed for the given parameters.
