Yamato to launch multihead weigher

Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK will be launching its innovative new Epsilon multihead weighing machine at interpack 2017 in Dusseldorf in May.

The Leeds-based firm will also be demonstrating the world-beating capabilities of its other leading weighing machinery at this year’s show.

Yamato is exhibiting at interpack 2017 at Messe Dusseldorf to demonstrate the vital role that multihead weighers, checkweighers and table top weighers play throughout the packaging process for food, confectionery, bakery and pharmaceutical sectors. Located on stand B21 in Hall 15, the UK Yamato team will be joining colleagues from Germany to show visitors to the exhibition how its weighing technology, combined with expert sales and engineering support and spare parts availability, create a true one-stop-shop for food processing and food packaging solutions.

Yamato will be demonstrating its total weighing and checking range and showing how it can be used in all parts of the packaging process in all the main food processing sectors – salads and fresh produce, IQF and frozen food, snacks, nuts and confectionery. As part of its exhibition Yamato will be launching its new weighing solution, the new mid-class Epsilon series.

The combination weighers in this series combine the best features of the incomparable Sigma Series and Yamato’s intelligent Omega series.

Two models will be available on the Yamato stand; the ADW-E-0516M, which has a memory function that increases throughput by 50 per cent for many frozen products such as vegetables, fruit or meat and the ADW-E-1014S which has been especially developed to weigh chips/fries.

A full range of Yamato weighing equipment will be on show including Omega multihead weighers, the Alpha Advance multihead machine and I-Series checkweighers.The Omega 01214S and the Omega 0614S will be showcasing Yamato’s capabilities in the salad industry and the IQF/frozen food sectors respectively. Its Alpha Advance 0314S will demonstrate its suitability for snack, confectionery and nuts packaging.

At the other end of the production process Yamato will be showing off its checkweighing solutions including metal detection and combi-checkweighing with its I Series and J Series machines. Compliance with the industry package of food safety/fail safe operation features is crucial and Yamato will be demonstrating how it achieves this throughout the production process.

It will also be showing how it is possible to respond quickly to the changing compliance landscape regarding the recently introduced changes to the measuring instrument directive (MID) regulations. “We’re excited to be showcasing at the interpack event. This is our first time at the show and we hope to make an impact on the European market with our new Epsilon weigher,” said Andrea Spencer, commercial operations manager for Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK. “Many customers are interested in the processes and machinery that keep their lines running behind the scenes.
