Ishida Europe has expanded its RVE range to include 24-head models, alongside 10, 14, 16 and 20 head variants. It said the latest addition offers a faster and more accurate weighing solution for a wider variety of applications, including sticky products.
The range now also features Powerful Frequency Controlled Vibration (PFCV), technology previously only available on the company’s premium range of multi-head weighers.
The PFCV technology provides more power for feed control of product from the top of the weigher to the hoppers. By being able to automatically vary the amplitude and now also the frequency of vibration to achieve resonance, both the power and control can be fine-tuned. This ensures a steady and consistent feed of even the most challenging products.
Without PFCV, hoppers are sometimes over-filled or ‘starved’ of product resulting in poor combinations being available. To overcome this and maintain throughput, other weighers would require the weight- limit settings to be increased. But this would lead to excessive product giveaway, according to the company.
