Yamato set to unveil latest confectionery weighing systems at PPMA event
Yamato's latest Epsilon confectionery multihead weighing series.
Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK has confirmed the release of its latest Epsilon range of multihead weighers for use in markets including confectionery and snacks, to be unveiled at the PPMA event in the UK, reports Neill Barston.
The company will be showcasing its present range of new and updated lines at the trade fair taking place at Birmingham’s NEC between 28-30 September, which will represent the first time many companies will have exhibited in the country for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As the business explained to Confectionery Production, last year’s cancellation of PPMA left a noted gap in the schedule, with the sector keen to resume activities with restrictions beginning to ease on larger-scale events.
Visitors to the event will be able to take in Yamato’s latest Epsilon series, known as a ‘stick machine’ for its capability of handling elongated forms of products, in addition to its x-ray inspection machines, it’s newly launched TSDN-3 as well as a new range of hygienic checkweighers – which will all be demonstrated during the event.
The company’s extensive equipment series has been focused on rigorous testing for machinery accuracy, code of practice compliance and meeting ever-more demanding hygiene standards, with its team of specialists on hand to explain how product categories can best benefit from its solutions.
A full range of Yamato weighing and inspection equipment will be on show including multihead weighers, Yamato’s semi-automatic dataweigh range, Xray and I-Series checkweighers.
Notably, the business will be showing customers how it can help ensure compliance with government and supermarket standards using state-of-the-art metal detection and x-ray technology.
The YX20 x-ray inspection machine, for example, is compliant with BRC, supermarket standards and features an advanced linear array with proven inspection algorithms.
The inclusion of an x-ray system adds another layer of important checks to your processing and packaging line. Coming in the processing line after metal detection and checkweighing, an x-ray machine provides an additional deep visual check in real-time for foreign bodies in packaged products, as well as automated rejection.
Andrea Spencer, commercial operations manager for Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK, said: “We are excited to show customers the improvements we have made to existing machines and to reveal the benefits that our new ranges will deliver.
“Our commitment to R&D means that Yamato inspection and detection equipment remains cutting edge in terms of design, ease of use and compliance. Our recently launched global knowledge sharing initiative means that Yamato’s sales advisers are among the most technically able in our industry.
“We go the extra mile to ensure that we understand exactly what your business needs to achieve its goals. Our project management team will be with you every step of the way to ensure that we supply and install to your exact specifications, placing you the best possible position to attract and retain customers, while ensure that industry and supermarket requirements are always met.
“Customers are interested in the processes and machinery that keep their lines running. This event gives us a valuable opportunity to engage with them and discuss how they can best achieve their objectives with Yamato’s checkweighers, weighing machines. And metal detection and x-ray machines.”
