Check Weigh/Vision Combo Inspection System Launches
The PRO2300 CWI package inspection/weighing machine by ProSpection Solutions LLC (prospectionsolutions.com) has top/bottom package inspection of header/side seals, printed variable data, package height inspection and check weighing in one footprint. It is designed for applications including meat, cheese, nuts and convenience foods.
The system is equipped with high speed, high-resolution top and bottom cameras and high intensity LED lights. It includes a Wipotec load cell that weighs each package individually +/- .5 grams at a rate of up to 150 packages per minute. The system also measures package height and detects empty packages. It includes a dual air blow off reject station for removal of non-conforming packages based on inspection or weight.
Easily integrated with upstream/downstream equipment, it has an onboard database to manage incoming and outgoing data. Both vision inspection and check weigher controls are housed in a stand-alone control center, with separate HMIs for each system.
The entire system is designed to be IP-65 or above and is in accordance USDA wash down guidelines.
