Our checkweighers enable manufacturers to ensure their products remain within specification every time and meet the strictest legislative requirements. Ishida checkweighers comply with the European Instruments Directive (MID). 

  • Ishida's checkweighers can handle various pack types, including bags, trays and cartons 
  • Modular, space-saving design with integrated metal detectors and reject systems 
  • User-friendly and intuitive display options, including touch screen capability 
  • Trouble-free operation with easy cleaning and maintenance
  • Integration with additional Ishida equipment for complete line control 

All Ishida checkweighers can be equipped with multiple standard options to enhance performance and usability. For example, see below a typical Ishida checkweigher system with integrated metal detection.
