The HC-FL catchweigher is a combination of two single-interval scales in line. Both scales work simultaneously and independently of each other. As soon as a parcel exceeds a certain length, both single-interval 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 2.9 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 single-interval 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.
