New checkweigher now available!

The highly customisable modular design allows the checkweigher to be integrated with a metal detection system, 2 ejectors or 2 labellers. Adjustments can also be made to types of guides, length of tapes and width of transport.

The key benefits of the system are the speed and simplicity, with the ability to process 270 units/minute combined with its touch screen equipped with wireless and bluetooth connections.

It also comes with an integrated printer which allows easy analysis of statistics at the end of each run (e.g. number of rejects).

It is most suitable for food (fresh produce, ready meals, dairy) and pharmaceutical production lines, as it can handle huge volumes and it extremely easy to clean.

Modern Counter Partnership

Moving away from the old painted steel to a more modern Stainless steel construction means that this is easy to clean and more hygienic. Having stainless steel rather than rather than painted steel means that the financial value will not be lost. With Painted steel, once the paint is removed to be replaced it loses its value.

Xact launches new HP inkjet printers

Capable of printing up to 600×600 dpi, using window fonts, typical applications would include scanable 1D and 2D barcodes, graphics and high resolution, small character, real time information. Multiple cartridges can be mounted together to give a print height of 50mm or 100mm plus.

One of the main benefits over traditional coding technologies is the completely mess free cartridge replacement process which does not require a service technician as it works in a similar way to a standard desktop printer. This also means minimal maintenance is required and it is environmentally safe as there is no ink leakage.

The controllers themselves are extremely easy to use with icon-based software, touch screen control and message creation via USB or Ethernet, meaning little training is required. They also integrate well on any production line due to their compact size and versatile mounting of print heads.

Furthermore these TIJ printers can print at up to 300m/min and up to 4” print height while retaining a high quality print.

Upgraded CA9 launched

The new CA9-S has all the features of the CA9 including the automatic change of tube but has been enhanced to improved operating efficiency and safety.

  • Previously reaching 35 cycles per minute, the CA9-S can now reach up to 42 cycles per minute (of 1kg bags)
  • Similar to the Girbagger range of net welding machine, the CA9-S allows GirControl Plus connection enabling the customer to control production, monitor in real time and undertake remote servicing
  • The CA9-S includes a new full colour 7" touch screen with intuitive and attractive features

Xact launch high resolution inkjet printer

Its compact design simplifies space management and installation and it can be easily integrated into existing production lines.

It is easy to install and operate. The controller has an icon-based menu structure and integrated QWERTY keyboard, plus ‘hot keys’ to minimize the risk of input errors. Other features include 200 message storage for frequent product changes and a unique priming system which recycles ink.
It has the flexibility to work with a variety of print heads which are compatible with a variety of ink types and colours. The print heads’ integrated design encloses ink tank, print engine assembly, fluids and electronics. All print heads can be tilted for a variety of character heights.
Low ink consumption and minimal maintenance requirements contribute to overall low operating costs – combined with the bold, highly visible print and double sided printing, this is an attractive solution throughout the food and non-food packaging environments.
The HX64 can print up to 5 lines at up to 305m/min.

Giro control fresh produce packhouse equipment through central hub

Operating through a standard PC and connected through the network or through the Internet, Packhouse Managers can now monitor and analyse real time or saved data, e.g. number of bags, efficiency, stoppages and breakdowns – categorised by machine, line and date – for a tighter and more efficient control system.

The GirControl Plus collates data all in one central location, instead of at each individual machine, with a 2 way exchange of data. This hub is an office-based PC which can quickly and easily review the settings and current status of every machine connected to it through the network.

Furthermore, minor engineering faults can be solved remotely. Anyone can log onto the system from any computer connected to the Internet, provided they have been given access codes. This in turn means call-outs can be reduced as engineers will be able to identify errors, advise on corrective measures and even modify some settings without travelling to site. Despite this easy access, information travelling through the network is securely protected.
