How does the fresh food weigher work?
The animation below shows how an Ishida fresh food weigher works to ensure the fast and accurate weighing of produce.
The products are fed by a conveyor and distributed manually onto the feeder belts.
The products then fall into the pool hoppers and follow through into the weigh hoppers, where they are weighed and deposited into the boost hoppers underneath.
Here, accurate combinations are made to the required target weight, which is then desposited onto the collection belt and then into the waiting tray.
