Efficient snack deliveries
A 14 head Ishida CCW-R multihead weigher is enabling German fruit and nut snack specialist, Farmer’s Snack, to meet increasing demand for pocket-sized packs.
The multihead weigher forms the core element of a new packing line, installed by Farmer’s Snack after winning a major contract from a discount retailer. The line primarily handles the weighing and filling of pocket-sized bags with a fill weight of 40g, but is also able to pack 150g flat bags. The weigher meets customer specifications with regard to speed and can process up to 140 bags per minute.
In view of the high value of the company’s products, weighing accuracy is also an important factor. Maximum weighing accuracy is 0.1g and the standard deviation (weighing consistency) for a filled bag is below 1g.
