Dual-lane checkweighers

September 1, 2004




The Sonic 350 dual-lane small package checkweighers from Thompson Scale Co. use a second parallel conveyor belt to weigh more packages. Designed for in-motion weighing of semi-rigid or flexible and hard-to-handle products weighing from 10 grams to 10 kilograms with accuracies of up to ±0.1 grams, the checkweighers weigh products up to 18-in. long at production rates of up to 400 units per minute. Products compatible with the Sonic 350 include raw meats, poultry, fish, vegetables, or flexible packages such as bagged pasta, liquid-filled packages or bags of sugar.
