Heavy-duty checkweigher

September 3, 2007




Designed for use with products up to 500 lbs., the Thompson 4693 heavy-duty checkweigher can weigh bagged products, boxes, cartons and pails at angles up to +/-12°. A pop-up reject mechanism provides quick rejection of off-spec items, while the checkweigher’s internally controlled pacing conveyor ensures properly spaced packages across the scale. A variety of weigh station conveyors that run at speeds up to 220 ft./min. is available.
