New value priced checkweigher for mild to moderate washdown applications

June 17, 2008
Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed announces the introduction of its value priced checkweigher for mild to moderate washdown applications; the A300. Designed specifically for smaller packaging lines where space is at a premium, it can accommodate a variety of packages in a compact 30" of line space. The A300 is economically priced and delivers a rate of up to 165 ppm (packages per minute). The stainless steel construction of the A300 features an open design that allows easy cleaning and sanitizing in food processing applications in washdown environments; while “no tools” belt removal minimizes maintenance. A hermetically sealed load cell ensures superior long-term accuracy and weighing performance. The XC 5.7-inch QVGA touchscreen dashboard-style display provides intuitive, menu-driven access to basic checkweigher functions. Simple menus provide fast access to important checkweigher set up screens and production information. Browser-like navigation gives users fast access to important controls and read-outs, while allowing them to drill down easily into machine and line performance measures and statistics.
