The Features of the Frontier Multihead Weigher

The multihead weighers with a Frontier application achieve a significant increase in productivity. Depending on the model, these machines can reach a working speed of 600 weighments per minute and can be equipped with multiple outlets of up to 6 points.

Yamato Scale offers scale executions with up to 6-point product outlets. In combination with the Frontier technology, a multihead weigher with multiple outlets achieves a performance that would otherwise only be possible with a larger scale. The solution is cost-effective and space-saving.

By alternately opening and closing the bucket doors, the product is discharged alternately once into the inner and once into the outer collecting tray. This increases the distance between the drops. The product has sufficient time to gather in the collection bucket before being discharged compactly into the bag. The advantages are increased productivity as well as clean and tight sealing seams.

The Function of the Frontier Multihead Weighers

The Frontier equipment of the multihead weigher pertains to both software and hardware levels. The doors of the weigh buckets are controlled separately and open in two directions. The machine is equipped with two collating chutes: inner and outer. The weigh buckets discharge the product by alternating left and right.

The weighed product thus passes alternately first into the inner, then into the outer collating chute.

The window between the individual product discharges is increased. The product has twice the time to gather in the collection bucket before being discharged compactly to the next machine. This improves the product window and achieves a higher production speed.
