The HC-FL catchweigher is a combination of two single-platform scales in line. Both scales work simultaneously and independently of each other. As soon as a parcel exceeds a certain length, both scales work together as a virtual third set of scales. The machine is ideal for applications where high belt speeds and top throughputs are required for products individually weighing up to 60 kg – perfect for the CEP sector.
The scales weigh precisely up to 11,000 parcels an hour at transport speeds of up to 3.4 m/s. The scales impress with firstclass performance and durability. More than 1,000 systems have been put into operation worldwide to date. The HC-FL from WIPOTEC-OCS is therefore setting new standards in its sector.
The construction principle offers around 60 % more throughput at the same speed compared to single-interval scales. Using two combined scales enables the shortest possible product gaps. The catchweigher can also weigh during acceleration and decelaration phases, and on ascending or descending slopes. The use of a high-tech weigh cell from WIPOTEC, which works on the principle of electro-magnetic force restoration (EMFR), guarantees the best technology for excellent weighing results.
