Specialist Multihead Weighers  

Since developing the first multihead weigher in 1972, over the last 40 years we have continued to work closely with our partners to develop weighing and packaging solutions to their particular requirements.

Various food types present different challenges to the processing and packaging process. For example, "sticky" products such as meat or chicken do not flow easily through the packaging line, whilst products such as salt or cous-cous flow too quickly.   

Committed to designing equipment that will help producers pack all types of foods more efficiency, our research and development department currently has over 2000 patents pending.

Below are some of the specialist multihead weighers currently available from Ishida. We have many more specialist models available to suit a wide range of applications. Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
