Horizontal packaging machine for fresh products
max. 50 p/min Ishida Europe Limited

The Ishida Weigh-Batcher offers perfectly styled trays of fresh meat and poultry with an efficiency, speed and accuracy unattainable with older methods such as hand packing or grading.

It combines an Ishida Screw Feeder multihead weigher, capable of moving the stickiest products, with rapid,‘intelligent’ distribution to operators based in an ergonomically sound, compact workspace. Each highly accurate weighment is conveyed to a workstation (up to eight in number) where it falls onto a holding gate. Immediately the operator is ready, the weighment is released into a presentation tray. The operator then empties this into the final tray, styles it, and places it on an outbound belt for sealing, labelling and testing.

* Fast packing, with speeds of 50ppm readily attainable
* Giveaway around 0-2% (by comparison with the double figures of earlier methods)
* Optimised use of labour, with no waiting between weighments
* Can handle two different target weights simultaneously
* Can pack directly into trays or bags
* Compact design delivers high return on floor space
* Options include special scraper hoppers and direct-to-bag adapter
* Hygienic design for fast, effective cleaning
