Coming Soon! The ‘EXACT 100’ Citrus Weigher!

Save up to 12 tonnes of fruit per year with the BEST citrus weigher in the world!

The new ‘Exact 100’ is destined to be the best citrus weigher manufactured ever with its new innovative design.  Giró’s engineering team have invested more than 5 years of research and development to achieve an outstanding product which will become a breakthrough in the fruit processing business.  The Exact 100 is a high productivity and extremely accurate dynamic weigher combining the best features of both dynamic and static weighing technologies.  It has an innovative system based on robotic fingers that give the exact dose of fruit to each bucket. This bucket feeding can be done at high speed allowing to fill up to 48 pieces per second in the 8 buckets.  The high capacity buckets are driven through different carousels with a precise continuous movement. The brand new driving system is smooth and free of undesired vibrations.

State of the art in static feeding system: 

The ‘Exact 100’ has the most advanced feeding system with 8 “V shape” vibrating channels and 8 robotic holding fingers array accurately delivers all pieces towards the loading buckets. It enables a high fruit feeding pace: 3 pieces every 0.5 sec. Totalling 24 pieces bucket load by using 8 channels.

Highest accuracy dynamic weighing system:
The 4 bucket channels are driven by a revolving chained carousel through 4 weighing gates (equipped with 2 load cells each). The system uses 20 out of 68 buckets to attain the best weight combination, ensuring a 10 g accuracy on each weighed batch.

A new and smart mechanical driving system together with a sophisticated algorithm help achieve best bucket feeding according to the fruit caliber and target weight. Balanced bucket feeding is vital in order to have the correct possible combinations to find the target weight.                       

Easy maintenance, accessibility and hygiene

Another important aspect which Giró engineers focussed on when designing the Exact 100 is its easy maintenance and cleaning. In addition to employing robust and reliable mechanical systems and easy accessibility to the components that may require maintenance, it is also designed for simple and effective cleaning. The 68 buckets of Exact 100 can be easily removed using only one hand.  An automatic washer-sanitising machine will be launched with the machine which is ideal for both cleaning and sanitising the buckets increasing the lifespan of the machine.

The Exact 100 is a very versatile machine because it has 4 bidirectional output belts that enable it to feed a multitude of packaging machines.  It is possible to install four GirBagger machines or it can feed 3 GirBagger and 2 clipping machines like CA-9s or CA-10.

Two New Bags! The Window Compact And Window Ultrabag.

Giro’s range of bagging options has increased with the Window Compact and the Window Ultrabag.

The Window Compact is designed for horizontal display at the point of sales. It is ideal for sizes from 0.3 to 1 Kg particularly suitable for small and mid caliber fruit. It is a very compact package, hence its name, which optimises package size according to the content. The GirBagger UB-50, UB-60 or UB-65 equipped with an optional accessories is used to produce this bag. It is also based on Ultrabag style but reducing the length of the package and using a film with window. The recommended window dimensions are 140×60 mm or 130×60 mm depending on the size of the bag.

The Window Ultrabag is based on the well-known Ultrabag but a window has been included in the film that allows visibility through the mesh, giving a new look to the package.

The Window Ultrabag is the only package in the where you can choose the shape and position of a window according to the image or design printed on the film, offering an innovative and attractive alternative for packaging. With this unique feature, the consumer can see the product through a cut in the bag with a shape that is integrated into its design.  The GirBagger machines UB-50, UB-60 or UB-65 can produce Window Ul trabag packs without any optional accessory as it was an standard Ultrabag package, with the only difference of using a windowed Girfilm.

Giró can supply the W-Girfilm making the window position and shape according to the design. The size and shape of the window may vary depending on the graphics of the film and the designer’s creativity. It cannot exceed 60 mm wide and 125 mm length for a film UB or UP-320 and 145 mm wide.

Features of the Window Compact and Window Ultrabag are:

  • Registered landscape designs.
  • Neat & tidy package.
  • Different shape windows – you can choose to have the window front & / or back.
  • Flexible – different diameter nets if the fruit calibre changes.
