Ishida Europe is launching a new top-of-the range multihead weigher, offering even higher speeds, improved user interface, ultra-efficient operation and exceptional robustness even in the harshest factory environments.
The new Ishida CCW-RV delivers the highest levels of accuracy of any multihead weigher and, in addition to consistent weighing at close-to-zero giveaway, is now some 15% faster than its predecessor. This has been achieved by the introduction of more responsive radial feeder drives delivering faster and smoother product flow.
An improved user interface includes an ultra-fast touch screen ensuring quicker and easier set up, while the CCW-RV can also be operated remotely via wireless access with tablets, androids and smart phones. Enhanced security features include fingerprint verification access.
The IP67-rated hygienic design features six degree sloping, self-draining feeder covers and a nine degree sloping, self-draining main body, which minimise bacteria traps and allow faster and easier cleaning to increase uptime.
A new power management system provides three power modes (Full, Half and Eco), depending on operating conditions. This helps deliver 20% lower power consumption when compared with the previous market-leading Ishida R series, offering manufacturers additional efficiency and cost savings.
In addition, the CCW-RV maintains Ishida’s legendary durability and reliability and its robust construction enables the weigher to operate reliably even in the most difficult environments.
"With the RV, we have focused on those benefits which add the most value to our customers’ applications," explains Steve Jones, Ishida Europe’s general manager – product group marketing. "With easier set up, increased speeds, faster cleaning and enhanced durability, we are maximising customer uptime and product throughput. All of these, combined with lower power consumption, reduce operational costs and further improve the return on investment.
"Together with Ishida’s proven weighing accuracy and reliability, we have managed to make the best even better."
