Loma Systems has added two products – the Heavyweight and the Draglink – to its CW3 range of automatic checkweighers.

The Loma CW3 Heavyweight checkweigher for the food industry is designed specifically for heavier food items.

The accurate machine is designed for a bag or case weighing up to 60kg.

It can be integrated into high-speed lines with belt speeds up to 50m/min and has the capacity to weigh up to 60ppm.

The machine can handle large products up to 850mm in length and 600mm in width and is accurate to 1.6g.

As well as being efficient, the CW3 Heavyweight is designed with a small footprint, so it takes up as little production line space as possible.

The design is claimed to be easy to clean, minimising bug traps, and the bead-blast surface of the machine is water repellent to stop cleaning solutions settling.

The CW3 Heavyweight has been engineered with heavy-duty conveyor components and electronics.

The glass-free light-emitting-diode indicator stack provides red and green signals to show the operators that the machine is operational, ensuring that underweight or overweight products are always rejected.

The Loma CW3 Draglink checkweigher has been designed to help processors with high-production packaging lines.

Its cost-effective design, consisting of two individual lanes, weighs products simultaneously, controlling both lanes from a single panel.

The benefit of such a checkweigher is said to be substantial as weighing higher quantities allows for a much greater production yield, while still maintaining the strict quality control of all items processed.

The CW3 Draglink can work at belt speeds up to 120m/min, making it suitable for high-throughput production lines.

It can also weigh a range of flexible and rigid packs sizes up to 6kg to an accuracy of 0.6g.

The machine has the capacity to weigh up to 440ppm and the design of the mechanical and electronic parts ensures reliability and ease of servicing, according to the company.

All Loma checkweighers are enhanced by the performance of an accurate and stable load cell that maintains stability over extremes of temperature and humidity.

Both models are constructed in stainless steel, right down to the bearings and rollers, and will endure real-world production-line conditions.

Each machine meets the IP65 washdown rating and is tough enough for the intensive cleaning processes needed to maintain hygiene standards.

All Loma checkweighing systems feature touch-screen controls, offering multi-lingual operation for a variety of operators.

With this increased flexibility, both units can adapt to new or changing products and pack sizes and can even be switched to other production lines or manufacturing plants should the need arise.

This ability is useful in applications such as contract packaging, where it brings about both a reduction in downtime and an improvement in food product safety, according to the company.

All Loma checkweighers have a USB connection and a PC interface, making it simple to produce reports and statistics and to download these to a memory stick or a factory network.

Both systems will store the product weight details and requirements of dozens of products.

All the products in the CW3 checkweigher range are fully compatible with Loma’s IQ3/ IQ3+ metal detector system.

As a result, all machines can be used simultaneously and controlled using the same interface panel.

The CW3 Checkweigher is a flexible, customisable unit that will fit into most existing conveyor systems, improving accuracy and usability in many operations.
